As of this evening I hav fry in one of my fish room tanks, from two female L144 I bred from my pair I just split up and a common male my friend bred. Have been looking for info as to what makes calico, these look like they may be commontotally but some do have a sandy colour in places...i found a forum post earlier on here re the breeding traits but cant find it now lol.....Hoping my LDA072 breeds with the mother L144 !

This will be interesting to see.

The L144 that we know now is a simple colour variation of the common Bristlenose, not the separate species which is so rare that most people will never see on in their lives. Hence the breeding with the common.

The LDA072 may be a different story. It is an interesting question about crossing these. I am not sure how close they are, and if breeding them is possible. and further to this, if it is advisable. Given you are in England, I would be talking to some of the importers and seeing if you can import some more LDA072 and keep the species pure Very Happy

Here in Aus we are not allowed to import any catfish :'( So what we have now is what we have got...since 1974! We get so jealous of people who can import!

Yes well the LDA072 and L144 attempted a spawn a few days ago but i dont think theres any eggs yet, I just moved another catfish out of the tank to see what happens.....I cant source any other LDA072 at the moment, the importer i was buying from has closed shop due to illness...
