I got A. Baenschi fry......ITS A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by Star on Fri Feb 24, 2012 2:47 pm

excited only 1 it looks around 3-4 weeks old I have been sucking gunk off the sand each week and most likely sucked some fry up. So pleased to see one though, I thought they didnt like the tank as they kept spawning and eating the eggs Smile

I have managed to get one photo, Misty and Flash are really aggressive parents and as soon as I go near with the camera Misty grabs junior in her mouth!

I thought this little one had been eaten as mum had a new batch, I managed to catch the 3 she had today and transfer them to the fry tank, as I was giving the tank a good clean this guy shot out of the plants, he is acout 1cm long (I say he I have no idea) I am really please he is surviving in the main tank I did want to move him with the others but by the time I got the pipe he had vanished again.

From what I can remember the sex of Apistogramma can be effected by water temperature and PH values,

To get some males in a batch try raising the temp to 24-25 and dropping the PH towards 5.5-6
