Breeding 'Red Head' Tapajos Geophagus

Post by sjones_1 on Mon Mar 19, 2012 6:45 pm

Hi all,

In the tank in the office we have a breeding pair of F1 Red head geo's. They spawn occasionally but have never kept any fry.

Here they are;




One of my colleagues said they were fed up of seeing batch after batch get eaten and asked if there was anything I could do to save them. It wasn't easy but we set up a floating container and caught the parents just before they released the fry and collected the fry into the container.

This was about 2 weeks ago and since then they have gone from strength to strength. They were moved to larger accommodation this morning so thought I'd share some pics.
