Cherry Barb

Cherry Barb

Auction for one fish but more available and quantity has been added to this auction.

The cherry barb is an elongated fish with a relatively compressed body. It is fawn-colored on top with a slight greenish sheen. Its sides and belly have gleaming silver highlights. A horizontal stripe (brownish black to deep bluish black) extends from the tip of the snout through the eye to the base of the caudal fin. Above it is an iridescent, metallic line, gold at the front turning to blue or sea green toward the tail. Males are redder than females, and they attain a very deep red color when breeding. Females are lighter, with yellowish fins. The cherry barb will grow to 2 inches (5 centimeters) in length.

This peaceful cherry-red fish is most often kept in community tanks by fish keeping hobbyists. The cherry barb is a schooling fish and is best kept in groups of five or more individuals. It is also best to keep a ratio of two females to one male. The male will constantly harass the females to breed, and by this ratio, it gives the females a small break.

Clown Loach 5cm

Clown Loach

Approx 5 cm

Young Clown Loaches thrive in groups.

The tank should have subdued lighting, a soft, preferably sand substrate, and numerous hiding places provided made from rock-work or driftwood. Plants should be strong and resilient because large Clowns can be hard on them. They may uproot them, or punch holes in the leaves. Plant species must be capable of low-light environments.

Clowns are somewhat nocturanal in nature and often very lively in the early morning and after dusk. The addition of a blue moon light tube, or some other form of blue lighting, phased to come on before the main lights, and go off after them, will allow the owner to observe the fish at their most liveliest and entertaining. This will also avoid the fish being shocked by a sudden change in brightness.

Water parameters: pH 6.5 – 7.0, Hardness: aim for softer water, Maximum DH: 12

Temperature: 78F to 83F (25-30C)

I can send a few fish together

Please note that delivery charge includes chilli bag or box, 40 hr heatpad, and courier fees.

Cobalt Blue Zebra

Cobalt Blue Zebra

Currently approx 5cm

Native Habitat and Species Information

The Cobalt Blue Zebra (Maylandia callainos) is endemic to Lake Malawi, where it is most commonly found living in the north and north eastern areas of the lake. They are found living in rocky formations along the shoreline, where they live in and around rock caves and crevices. Cobalt Blue Zebra Cichlid are very territorial and once they have established themselves within a particular area they will defend their turf very aggressively.

Cobalt Blue Zebra Cichlid were formerly classified as Pseudotropheus callainos or Metriaclima callainos and is still often referenced by these names by many sources. The genus name Maylandia is now used to describe all former members of the (zebra) group of Pseudotropheus.

Aquarium Care

Hobbyists should either keep a small group of a single male specimen and 2 or 3 female Cobalt Blue Zebras together in an aquarium that is either large enough to provide adequate territory or overcrowded with enough African Cichlids so that no single specimen can establish its own territory. In either scenario, a 50 gallon or larger aquarium is recommended with a substrate of either sand or mixed sand and crushed coral. Plenty of rock formations, rock piles or rocky caves should be included with some vegetation consisting of fake plants or very hardy hard water plants.

Feeding & Nutrition

Cobalt Blue Zebra Cichlid will accept most commercial fish foods designed for Cichlids; however, it is essential that they receive a large amount of vegetable matter in their diet. Being a herbivore, their diet should consist of mostly vegetable matter either via commercial herbivore flakes and pellets or through fresh blanched vegetables like spinach, greens or other similar foodstuffs.

African Cichlids need to be kept only with other African Cichlids due to their high ph requirements and aggressive nature. They are the closest you will get to Marine colours at a much easier care aquarium.

Corydoras – Albino Cory 2-3cm

Tropical fish

The Albino Cory are quite hardy and adaptable, very peaceful, and they help keep the bottom of the aquarium clean by eating up leftover foods

They are very suited for a small aquarium. The Albino Cory is a small member of the Callichthyidae family of catfish, with a full grown adult only growing up to 2.5 inches (7 cm).

Though the Albino Cory are not often bred in home aquariums, they will breed rather easily and it is very interesting! The female will drop a few eggs and catch them with her ventral fins, carrying them about to deposit them here and there about the plants and decor in the aquarium.

The Albino Cory is a pseudo-albino variety that has been developed in the hobby trade from the darker-bodied Paleatus

Corydoras – Elegant Corydoras

The Elegans Cory Cat, also known as the Elegant Cory, comes from the tributaries of larger river systems in Central and South America, and is a peaceful bottom dwelling scavenger. The Elegans is silver to gold with a main black stripe running horizontally from the back of the head to the tail.

The Elegans Cory Cat requires a well planted aquarium with plenty of hiding places that provide relief from the light. A smooth sand or gravel substrate is needed because of the easily damaged barbels. They enjoy being in numbers, so a small school of six or more is ideal for these cats.

Breeding the Elegans Cory Cat is accomplished by providing a number of the same species in the aquarium and allowing them to pair off. The eggs of this species are fertilized after they have been deposited and will become waterborne in approximately five days. Feed the fry baby brine shrimp or crushed flake food.

The Elegans Cory Cat is omnivorous and will require a well balanced diet including dried, flake, frozen, and live foods. Feed a quality flake and pellet food as well as frozen brine and live worms.

Corydoras – Pygmy

The Pygmy Cory Cat lives up to its name maxing out in size at about 3cm.

The bottom dwelling Pygmy Cory’s scientific name is Corydoras Pygmaeus.

The Pygmy Cory is comfortable in temperatures from 22-27 Degrees C.

A pH of 6.5-7.5 is ideal for the Corydoras Pygmaeus.

Algae Wafers, Frozen, Live, and Flake food are accepted readily by Pygmies. Note: Pygmy Corydoras are primarily meat eaters and should not be fed Algae Wafers as a staple. A varied diet is great for them, though.

Unlike every other species of Corydora Catfish that require a 70 litre Long tank or 105 litre Tall tank, Pygmy Cories require a minimum tank size of 37 litres!

Like all Corydora Species, Pygmy Cories require a school of at least 6 Pygmies per tank.

Sexing Pygmy Cories is rather easy; females are noticably rounder and usually get larger than males.

Due to this Corydora’s peaceful nature they are compatible with most other peaceful community top, bottom dwellers, and will never be the bully of the tank. But, larger fish may pick on them. Choose tankmates carefully.

The Pygmy Cory Cat’s natural habitats are in small tributaries and creeks in Rio Madiera Basin, Brazil sheltering by marginal vegetation and tree roots.

Finally, like all Corydora Catfish, Pygmies have sensitive barbels on their mouths that are easily damaged. With out their barbels the Cory will die. To prevent this it is recommended to use fine substrate such as sand or a VERY fine gravel to prevent Barbel Damage.

With proper care the Pygmy Corydora has an expected lifespan of 5 years.

Interesting Facts:
-Pygmy Cories, and all Cories, have the ability to breath from the surface of the air. This is normal but there is a problem if your Pygmy Cories are constantly darting to the top for air.
-Pygmy Cories are a part of the “armoured” catfish group. This means, instead of scales, Corydoras have two rows of bony plates running along their sides.
-Pygmy Cories are very sensitive to salt.
-C. Pygmaeus are not the traditional bottom dweller. Unlike most Corydoras, they hover aound in mid-tank regions more than on the bottom.

Corydoras – Skunk Cory

The Skunk Cory
Whatever name you call them, the Corydoras arcuatus is a peaceful, interesting, active, shoaling species that prefers living among other Corys of their own size.
The Skunk Cory Cat is a popular community tank species that can be identified by the black stripe that runs over their eyes, down their back to just before the tail where it splits and trails down to color the lower edge of the caudal fin. In most other Cory species, the black stripe does not split but continues along the upper edge of the caudal fin. They have stiffened pectoral fin spines that are capable of piercing human skin and causing a painful “sting” from their mildly toxic secretions that are produced by the axillary glands at the base of each spine. Exercise care when handling these Corys.
Skunk Corys are peaceful bottom dweller that get along well with other like sized fish, especially when kept in small schools of 6 to 8 specimens. They are efficient cleaners of excess food from the aquarium substrate.
The Skunk or Sands’ Cory appreciates stronger water currents than other members of the Corydoras genus. They will thrive in a densely planted aquarium with a sandy substrate surrounded by Java Moss, Java Fern and driftwood areas for them to hide.
Like other Corydoras, this species will spawn eggs on either the aquariums glass, driftwood, or among the plants. Female Skunk Corys are noticeably wider and broader than males when viewed from above; especially when full of eggs.

Skunk Corys are omnivores and should be fed a mixed diet of good quality flake food, shrimp pellets, tubifex, and other freeze dried or frozen foods.
