Video: Cichlid Pool 2012

This time we shoved the Repashy into a hole in the rock. The crowd goes wild!

Our pond is up and stocked with a whack of critters from Lakes Malawi and Victoria, including Pseudotropheus acei, Ps. flavus, Ps. saulosi, Ps. lombardoi, Astatotilapia latisfaciata, Paralabidochromis sauvagei, and Labidochromis caeruleus. The algae bloom we had earlier in the spring is dying off with the addition of a UV sterilizer (that’s all the floaty stuff you see in the video). Toward the end of the video is a hand-feeding of Repashy Superfood… the fish LOVE it!

Ptychochromis grandidieri ‘East Coast Gold’ (Sauvage 1882)
This fish is found near the eastern coast of Madagascar, often in brackish water. Mature specimens often show gold coloration, which gives the fish its name.

Video: Synodontis multipunctatus

Been trying out the new Repashy foods. All my fish love it and this clip shows the multis going after chunk of the shrimp souffle. This seems to be great stuff. Time will tell how the fish respond long term but this is a great start.

Video: Neochromis greenwoodi

This male Neochromis greenwoodi was trying to spawn with anything he could tonight. There are a couple ripe females in his harem so it is a safe bet there will be a mouth full of eggs very soon.
