Winter will be.....tomorrow.

Last night I dropped 10 bucks on tickets for a raffle at our fish clubs Christmas Party raffle. Two of my tickets were drawn and I won 2 pairs of "Golden Eyed Dwarf Cichlids" and four "Whiptailed Catfish" (don't know what kind) so in addition to the water changes I have some studying to do.

My setup needed some variety in species so I think working a bit with these is a project I will enjoy. They are all looking good in a couple of quarantine tanks that I had running. I put the cichlid pairs in separate tanks of course. lol

..Interesting species....actually does well in community tanks......
.."Nannacara Anomala are widely available in the trade, and are generally regarded as an excellent beginner’s fish. If a beginner is interested in keeping Cichlids and learning about breeding, then these fish are absolutely ideal.

Anomala are attractive, hardy and usually quite cheap to purchase. Like some species of the Apistogramma genus, the mother may use fascinating body language to communicate with her fry when she is caring for them.

If there is more than one male in a tank smaller than 48″, the subdominant male may take on the guise of a female (colouration and size) to avoid the aggression of the dominant male. If the dominant male was taken away, the subdominant male would quickly (a matter of weeks) grow into a fully functioning male and become the dominant male in the tank."

“Nannacara” simply means “Small Acara”.

Rain all day here today.  I guess I'll be stuck with house cleaning.
Always move forward. Never look back.
