Dwarf Cichlid’s New Eggs

Nice tank news! Mrs C (dwarf cichlid, apistogramma borelli) is keeping watch over a batch of eggs on the rock. She seems to have her dark brown and orange prominent markings on all the time at the moment. I looked for eggs as she doesn’t leave the planted rock very much apart from occasionally chasing Mr C around even though he is staying away from her. The first eggs I noticed a while ago were on the leaf of the rock plant so this is definitely Mr & Mrs C territory. I tried to capture an egg picture so you can just about see the white specks to the left…

Double Trouble

Nancy and Rene the Bristlenose buddies seem very happy together.  They flutter about the tank after each other and have even found a nook each in the bogwood.  Nancy has become a lot more outgoing since Rene’s arrival so we see a lot more of her.

I managed to catch the two female Bettas together which shows off some colour.  I haven’t made any moves towards finding them a gentleman friend yet.

I also got a good snap of Mr and Mrs C together and will polish off this post with pics of super fish and a splay of bristles – ta-daaa!
