think i just found out why my prize female pregnant guppy fish have been losing their fry...
not to mention I can not find my latest batch of newly hatched Bristlenose fry.
well two reasons, one being jewel cichlids were nipping their tails and picking them off one by one.
And then today I found out that a LFS sold me two bumblebee cat fish-now they look beautiful fish,
however and here is the big however, after checking out online it says they eat other fish under 3cms's. :face:
This might explain why my last two spawn of ancistrus have gone and all my female pregnant guppies
looked thin and there spawns had gone.
I remembered asking the LFS if the cat fish would be ok with BN and also guppies and they advised me they would.
That is another reason why you can not believe every thing you hear at the LFS...
No matter which site I checked the Bumblebee out on today - they state these fish are predators and can eat any other fish under 3cm's. As such I am now looking at passing them onto any one else who would like to lovely bumble bee cat fish, however they will need to be kept in a tank of at least 100cm's and other fish must be bigger than them.
I did I also say that it looks like I have a female and male bumble bee and the female appears to be full of eggs.
Not a bad thing really since these are supposed to be hard to breed in aquaria.
So what do you guys and girls think?
