Based on the in depth fish profile our site has I have identified that my Dicrossus filamentosus are from the Rio Negro population. According to the specs my tank is set up perfectly as far as breeding them. Maybe I'll end up with some fry after my fish reach adulthood! Thanks for all the work you did on that profile(s) Byron!!

Hey Kym,
You said you would and you did! So, tomorrow you'll return and get three more? Do you expect breeding to happen? Any other fish in there new tank? Is this the beautiful Discus tank I admired so much earlier today. Those videos were breathtaking. I coudln't tell, were fry swarming in the one movie?
Congrats!!

Yes, tomorrow I will go and pick up three more. These fish will be housed in my 75gl, my Discus are in the 100gl. In the pics of my Discus there were no fry. I have only had one batch make it to free swimming and failed to get any pics before they were snapped up by the other fish!

Based on the fish profile that Bryon has written for this species it seems that the 75 is well suited for breeding for this type of fish. It is also a community tank but it is so well planted that it's possible some fry could survive in the "jungle". Time will tell! I'm so enchanted with this little fish, and prior to a few days ago I never knew even knew it existed!

I'm excited for you Kym. I long ago raised Kribs in a community 30 gal tank and dozens survived. It was well planted. How fascinating!

I wanted to show a then and now pic. These cichlids are coloring up nicely, and I can't stop looking at them, lol. I wish I could get a decent pic with all rays fully extended but my camera isn't quick enough. The dorsal is a brilliant blue with a red edging. Fantastic fish.

Yes, same fish. I so wish I had a better camera as these little fish are so much prettier than any of my discus, IMO. The colors are sparkling brilliant, like jewels. I'm so in love with this fish, lol. I'm hoping my Apistogramma cacatuoides (who are in this same tank) color up as nicely as these fish are. It'll be quite the display if they do. The Dicrossus and Apistos get along very nicely, which is an added bonus.
It used to be you couldn't tear me away from my discus tank, now I find I'm spending more time in front of this tank!
