Re: GBR breeding journal

I use "coupling 24". The correct length for 15 G. 2 pieces give enough light.

A lot of things I do not know. Learning has no end

Re: GBR breeding journal

Update time;
Moving day for fry and juvis!
Yes I think the micro worms and smaller tanks are helping.
Moved all juvis into the 55 after a 75% water change.
At least 3 pairs laying eggs on the sponge filters already! Half these guys have been in 55 for a month or so.
I have more fry that are keeping all my tanks full and moving.
I haven't built my second breeding station yet,but am now leaning towards 10g tanks with the petco sale coming up.
I also have spoken with a few other GBR breeders and may try keeping 1 male for each 4-5 females,and giving the girls a break from him while he tours from tank to tank.
I'll post more soon with pics.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Re: GBR breeding journal

Traded 40 yesterday.Working on higher or more steady survival rates for first 2 weeks.It is still hit or miss?
Picked up a young pair of pearl gouramis and a new 20 long to give me something easier to do,since I have no more swords.
The live foods definitely help.

Re: GBR breeding journal

I would like to tell something.
If the young fish in a smaller vessel feeding with live food, I already had losses. Although I had regularly renewed half water. Sucked off the dirt from the floor.
I changed the procedure. For a year I take the whole pelvis, and pour it with fish in a large white bowl. Then I bring the water to a rotation. The empty vessel inside has a nursery of micro-organisms. I wash off in the bathroom. When I come back, the water is calm. In the middle of a pile of dirt is. I Suck off and a little more water (half). Then I pour everything back into the empty pool. New plants to (Sumatrafarn, grows in the large pool). I Pad stood by water.
It does not take more time than before.
But it has since nothing happened to me with the juveniles.

I hope it helps you.

Re: GBR breeding journal

Hello, Tom,
It's a wonderful yellow cultivar. A nice picture. And I am glad that everything is back in order. We continue.

Re: GBR breeding journal

I think of you Susan.Good luck with your health,we are all getting old.
Arthur I do miss speaking with you!
How can you explain my yellow ram from normal looking Mikrogeophagus ramirezi?
Am I lucky with a large batch this color?
I have fry from a pair of the yellow as of yesterday!
I would love to hear more from you.

Re: GBR breeding journal

I had ramirezi not bred. But I had to take pictures with breeders from our former club, if they wanted to make a presentation. I liked the fish always. But I had the water too small. It was the ancestral form, cacatuoides.
There are still among the offspring more yellow? And you have yellow couples recognized for breeding?
It may be a mutation. But that's very rare.
It must eventually had trunk with color variations connection with parents. Today there are all colors, blue, orange, red. The lemon yellow I have not yet seen.
If it is dominant, the yellow color is back. If recessive, so it is covered by the normal color. (The phenotype). But in the genotype the property exists, and may occur by chance again.
These genetics is complicated. And practice this takes a lot of time and patience

Re: GBR breeding journal

Arthur,
Some of these fish ,4 months old now are still very yellow.
Some are showing GBR markings but lack color.
Yes I have yellow pair which gave me yellow(I hope) free swimmers!
I have been told this rare by several others like you also!!!!
I will continue to research your info(thank you so much).
I will take all the time an be separating a couple of my most yellow fish and separate their fry!

On the rare ram...
What do you know about albino rams?
I find no information at all!
They must be rare since they should exist and I can't find a picture anywhere!

Thank you again Arthur!
Tom

Re: GBR breeding journal

Don't worry about it dude. Every animal has an albino form so it's only a matter of time before getting one.

Re: GBR breeding journal

Hi, Tom
I was looking for. Have found:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_EDTxo-pE8

Süd- und Mittelamerikanische Zierfische - Fish & More in Siegen

There is no written text to, otherwise I would have it translated for you.

I'll keep looking.
Greetings
