Hmmm...oddly your aquarium profile says you are 22 years old. So how old are you?fishaholic87 said:I’m under 18 and just looking for something cool to do in my 11th tank money would be a bonus considering I operate on a 5 a week allowance but I just want to have fun
They have lost it from not being allowed to parent, the ones that are more expensive the owners are more likely to pull the fish because the fry are more valuable to just go ahead and pull over wasting time by letting the parents raise them for a while - you can make efforts to get the parents to raise them by letting them fail a couple spawns and learn they need to care for them.fishaholic87 said:Yes and no I kinda want one that displays parental skills and from what I’ve read they lost it due to being in bred so much and the ones that still have it are expensive
So you’re saying this is your 11th tank? And you have some cichlids. What kinds of fish/cichlids do you already have, it would help with our recommendations.fishaholic87 said:Thanks I’ve already set up a brevis tank
Oh ok, I misunderstood then. I’m really happy with my pair of German blue rams I got, but they do have a reputation for being rather sensitive and prefer warmer water temps 82-85. It doesn’t sound like you’d have trouble with them at all though, and I don’t think they are difficult to breed. Not sure on their parental behavior but I have seen a YouTube video of a male ram protecting his fry. They are more attractive IMO than a Bolivian ram.fishaholic87 said:
I hear shell dwellers are pretty easy to breed. But are so small I think they would be a waste of a 60 gallon.Demeter said:African cichlids and discus are your best bet in seeing some parental skills. I'd personally look into shell dwelling African cichlids as well.
