so i had the idea that severums are really highly available and i didn't want fish everyone can get, so i ordered myself some of their lookalike southern friends: the chocolate cichlids :D i've ordered 4 of them to get a breeding pair and the other 2 will go into a tank of their own or will be sold to my aquarium club.

the fish should be F1 so i'm hoping for some great coloring. updates with pics will follow when my order comes in and they have reached their new home :)

so far they are planned for the last week of may.

hypselecara temporalis, i couldn't find any others no matter how hard i looked, or i would have to ship them in from the US, and i don't think fish will like flying half way around the world.

The fish do not care how far they go , over night is overnight.. You will like those chocolates. They are very nice fish. Show pics when they get there.

i think eddie got them from the same place.


you may have to watch the aggression as they grow. very possible to have to rehome a couple .

unfortunately no From what I have been told is they need to be older to spawn but we will see. I imagine in a few mts they might try
