PostSubject: Compatible male and female?   Fri Nov 12, 2010 6:05 pm

I finally managed to get some reasonable photos of my male and female. The female I bought as "Wild caught" As you can see there is a big difference in their colouring. Are they compatible?

They look like two different Ancistrus sp. and it's unlikely they are compatible for breeding.

I would def still give it a shot. The colouration of bristlenose has changed a lot since they have been bred.

not to mention that different species are currently named more on morphology, not on cross-breeding ability.

Well I suppose time will tell. I'll leave them in the same tank and let nature take it's course - or not.

They are definitely interested in each other Smile though I suppose that may be a territorial thing.

Hi Curby I can see them but that might mean they are cached in my computer. They're linked from Flickr here is the url for the set
