Tropical fish

Albino Plecostomus

Albino Common Plecostomus

The fish sold as a Common Pleco in fish stores is normally no bigger than 5-10 cm but this doesn’t mean that it will stay like that forever. In the case of the common pleco, you should expect your fish to eventually reach a size of 30-60 cm

Plecos are nocturnal creatures that are quite passive during the day

Large adult specimens normally need at least 200 – 375 litres

It is important to cover the aquarium when keeping pleco because they are capable jumpers. In the wild, plecos can use this ability to escape to better conditions during dry periods. They can not really travel on land, but they are strong enough to wiggle their way from a shallow puddle to deeper puddle in a drying riverbed. To a certain extent, they are capable of absorbing oxygen directly from the air so they will last longer on land than many other fish. If you come home and find your pleco seemingly unconscious on the floor, you should put it back in the aquarium because it might not be dead yet.

Do not let the water go all the way up to the lid, because the pleco wants to be able to swim up to the surface and gulp air. The fish uses the air to control its buoyancy.

The water temperature should be kept in the 20-28 degrees C (68-82 degrees F) range and rapid changes in water temperature should be avoided.

In addition to dry prepared foods, give your  pleco some fresh fruits and vegetables. You can for instance serve cucumber, zucchini, squash and similar vegetables. Lettuce and other leafy vegetables are also highly appreciated. There is no need to boil of blanch fruits and vegetables. A practical way of feeding pleco is to get a vegetable holder for the aquarium or make one using a clothes-pin or similar.

Last but not least, an aquarium where you keep pleco should always include driftwood since the fish needs wood to chew on. Wood is an importance source of fibre for plecos.

Albino Yellow Stripe Cichlid

Listing is for an albino one who

Melanochromis auratus — Auratus, Malawi Golden Cichlid

Auratus comes from the rocky shores of Lake Malawi.

When the male reaches around 5 cm in length, it begins to develop mature male colours. The female colours are now reversed on the male, resulting in a black body base colour with yellow stripes. Sometimes the yellow stripes are turquoise or blue depending on the original location where the fish is found. The caudal fin is black with a few white stripes and the dorsal fin is yellow. The anal, pectoral, and pelvic fins are black and have a white fringe, with yellow egg spots on the anal fins. A pale blue variation is found around the LikomaIslandsin Lake Malawi.

Males grow to 12 cm, Females to 10 cm, however fish up to 20 cm have occurred

Tanks of around 150 litres are sufficient for these fish if they do not exceed 10 cm in length. Larger fish require at least a 200—250 litre tank. This species requires the typical Mbuna set—up: algae covered rocky structures with plenty of caves and hides.

The Auratus is hardy but quite aggressive, particularly to its own and similar species. Solve the problem by providing at least one cave for each fish, and match only with non-similar companions. The correct ratio is one male with several females. Since the females are ‘prettier’ this should pose no problems. When disturbed, the male can undergo rapid colour change, usually assuming female colours.

These fish are “Aufwuchs” feeders in nature. Their diet should thus be heavily biased toward vegetarian foods.

Breeding this fish is relatively easy, but aggression is a factor. Raise the water temperature to 26-28°C to initiate spawning. Place at least 4 females with one male in a breeding tank as the male is extremely aggressive when breeding. 10-30 eggs are laid and are immediately taken into the female’s mouth. The male should be removed just after spawning is complete. The eggs are incubated for three weeks, until they hatch. The fry remain in mouth of the female for another week, after which they become free swimming and ready to feed on fry foods.

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.

Ancistrus Bristlenose – Long Fin Albino

Ancistrus Bristlenose – Ancistrus Bristlenose – Long Fin Albino

approx

Grow to 10-13cm

Tropical Fish

Members of the Ancistrus group make superb aquarium catfish because of their algae cleaning behaviours. For general algae film removal these fish are ahead of the rest resulting in a clear view without the use of a glass cleaning magnet. Bristlenose catfish are able to do this because they have a sucker mouth with rasping teeth ideally suited to an algae diet. These fish also serve the purpose of cleaning up excess fish food as part of their feeding habits.

As the name suggests bristlenose catfish develop a bushy growth around the snout area.

Angel – Marble

The Angelfish Pterophyllum scalare is a graceful disk shaped cichlid. Though it was named for the marine angelfish, it bears little resemblance to these fish or even to any other fish in the Cichlid family. This fish is rather diamond shaped or leaf-like in appearance. It has a rounded body that is greatly compressed laterally accented with long, triangular dorsal and anal fins. Its genus name Pterophyllum is very descriptive of its appearance as this term actually means “winged leaf”. It is also known as the Silver Angelfish, Freshwater Angelfish, and Common Angelfish.

These are some of the most attractive fish and very popular with both the beginner and the long-time aquarists. In the wild they are found with black bars on a silver colored body. But there are also some mutations found in nature as well where these fish are without bars, are solid black, and have lace forms.

Through captive inbreeding its natural mutant forms have become fixed forms for the hobbyist. Angelfish are mostly all captive bred and there are many color and finage varieties available. Some of the best known varieties include the Silver Angelfish, Zebra Angelfish, Marbled Angelfish, Veiltail Angelfish, Blushing Angelfish, and one produced with much effort, the Gold Angelfish.

These are moderately sized cichlids that are very tall and extend to about 6 inches (15 cm) in length. The Veil varieties can be even taller due to their fins. They are moderate to care for but they do need enough room to accommodate their size and swim freely. A 30 gallon tank would be the suggested minimum, but if you are keeping a pair or keeping them in a community, the tank will need to be larger.

The Angelfish are considered a community fish, but they are cichlids. Consequently they may not be as sociable with smaller fish. They will school peacefully when they are young but tend to pair off and become more territorial when they are older. Being a bit timid, they can be frightened by shadows and fast movements. They will feel most at home and comfortable in a warmer aquarium that has hardy plants placed around the inside perimeter, has some rocks and roots for retreat, and has an open area in the center for swimming.

Apple Snail

Apple snails can live together with most fish without problem, but snail eating fish species should be avoided (obvious). Also many fish will try to nip at the tentacles of the apple snails, but that should not be a problem, as the apple snails will adapt quickly by keeping their tentacles under their shell. In general at least 10-liter water for each medium sized apple snail is advised. Furthermore a coverplate to close the tank of is necessary in order to avoid nightly escapes. You won’t be the first to find your snail on the ground!An airspace of several centimeters between the water and coverplate, to provide these snails with fresh air, is a necessary. Even they do have gills besides their lung; they will drown if left without air. In case one would like to breed these snails, an airspace of about 10-cm is a needed because the snails will otherwise have difficulties to deposit their eggs above the water.

Apple snails are very easy when it comes to food and they eat almost anything they can tear pieces off and put in their mouth. Vegetables like cucumber, spinach, carrots and lettuce, fish food, dead fishes, other snails and their eggs, algae, brine shrimps, they eat it all.

Because apple snails have large amount of microorganisms in their intestines, to help digesting the food, the water can become cloudy as these microorganisms are expelled with the faeces. This is not directly harmful and can even be beneficial as a food source for you fish. Good filtration and limiting the food supply can reduce this side effect.

Information about care
This gourami has been bred into many varieties, though these varieties are predominantly gold or blue. Not as peaceful as other members of their genus, the blue gourami should be kept with larger fish, as they tend to pugnacity and eventually bullies other smaller inhabitants. They are excellent swimmers that chase each other around the tank. Blue/Gold gouramis are bubble nest breeders. They are not easily sexed, although the male has a slight pointed dorsal fin. Very accepting of all kinds of foods, they are best kept on a diet of good quality flake, frozen or live food, as well as spirulina flakes to balance the diet.

Blue Peacock Cichlid

The Blue Peacock Cichlid or Aulonocara nyassae is a popular species of Cichlidto keep in an aquarium. These beautiful freshwater fish originate from Lake Malawi in Africa. The male and female Blue Peacock Cichlid are very easy to tell apart, unlike a lot of other fish. The male is bright yellow with metallic blues, while the female is a brown or gray, not nearly as brightly colored. Males will even become brighter when they are spawning.

If you are thinking of buying a Blue Peacock Cichlid for your aquarium be sure you have one that will house 60 gallons of water or more. This species of Cichlidshould be given plenty of hiding spots, as well as rocks and a nice sandy bottom is ideal. The following water conditions are acceptable for this fish, 76-82° F, KH 10-15, and pH 7.8-8.6.

Blue Peacock Cichlids aren’t particularly aggressive, but if they are housed with other Cichlids in too small of an aquarium things can get a little testy. If you provide them with a few females per male they will tend to get along better.

When the Blue Peacock Cichlid breeds it will take about three weeks before the fry hatch. Females are mouth brooders, which means that they keep their eggs inside their mouth and can protect the young fry even after they are hatched by allowing them to swim into their mouths for protection. You can feed the young fry crushed flake food and brine shrimp. After they grow larger these carnivores should be fed live and frozen brine shrimp, flake food and Cichlid pellet food. These fish can grow to about 7″ when fully grown and can live about 12 years.

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.
