REASION- - - - - - - - - - -
the only reasion they are on my hand is........ they need to be out of the tank they was in as my jags have bred, also as you catfish ppl will no if you use a net..... well you dont use a net as they just end up getting stuck in it, so as they was there and the cam was there a quick pic was taken :wink:

trhanks 4 looking

Out of interest, how did you get them out? I've always wondered what the best method would be for catching them

bolty 04-05-2007 04:04 PM

they hide no live and never come out from under a big bit of bog wood in my tank, so all i did was pit my hand under the wood and pulled them off the wood (nice and slow) all the tame with a bit of grip, seems to do the trick every time 4 me :shock:

kate another way is to get a wee plastic container and coax them into it. it can take a while but im too nervous about handling them in case they struggle and i end up dropping them or hurting them while trying to hold one.

Nice Panaque bud.

The first is L191, what was the second sold to you as do you know? Have the jags been munching on its caudal?[/i]

interesting, it displays non of the rusty patches in its fins or translucent caudal i would expect to see from a xingu pop. fish, hence me asking.
