Good stuff, looks like you have some good parents, been thinking about getting a pair of these to breed.

stevenjohn21 07-13-2011 09:53 PM

Thank you, they are great fish to own/breed and i would recommend them to anyone that has never owned cichlids before. Are you breeding Rams at the moment ?

You have a very nice male and female... My pair just laid eggs 4 days ago 2nd batch. What do you feed you fry. I feed mine live bbs, eggyolk,and firstbites

stevenjohn21 07-13-2011 11:25 PM

My first batch i fed first bite and infusoria together in a small tub then used a turkey baster to squirt it into the tank, however they didnt grow vey fast that way.
2nd and 3rd batch i use microworms and first bites and they have grown a lot quicker. I have tried boiled egg yolk but its very messy.

Cool. i am splitting my 38 to breed angels and a pair of kribs, whats your opinion of it...

stevenjohn21 07-13-2011 11:34 PM

ha ha ! Im doing the exact same! I just bought a 40 gallon breeder tank from petco during their $1 a gallon sale and i have 4 juvenile angels that were given to me but are old enough to breed now so im splitting the tank to breed the kribs and angels.
I have no idea what sex the angels are (apparently its near impossible to tell) so its a gamble.

Is it easy to hatch the BBS ? where do you get the eggs from ?

Christople 07-14-2011 09:49 AM

Yeah hatching is really easy. I put the thing in my tank for warmth and then wait a day and take them out, feed and freeze. here is what I have Artemia Cultivation Units works great. My fish seem to be hating the divider right now I don't think I will be able to get away with them being okay with it. Maybe a pair of angels and kribs would get along... I just had a spark of my not uncommon genius, don't use the divider but in the middle make the plants so dense that can't go through... time to get more plants and a better bulb

Trying..... but I have a female that has no clue what to do with the eggs, I've only got some to live now because I removed the eggs.

Are the microworms you are using just freezedried? I gave up on the bbs since I only have about 5 survivors and just sticking with first bites.

Wow stunning pair of fish! Those kribs look amazing. Kribs are very good parents and they are known for taking care of their fry for a long time.
