Rehomed my geo and got a couple of newbies

Postby dw » Tue Jun 26, 2007 2:16 pm

I've had a bit of a day of fishy highs and lows.

Firstly, my female geophagus brasiliensis went back to the lfs where I got her about 6 months ago. Sorry to see her go, but there wasn't another option. Though my lovely lfs said they'd ring me to let me know when she was sold and what she'd gone to live with :)

Onto the fishy highs, I finally got a pair (hopefully) of Lamprologus occelatus, which are little Tanganyikan shell dwelling cichlids. Hopefully I'll get up some pics up later or 2moro, when they've settled in and stopped hiding :lol:

Here's the male occelatus, the other one is still a bit shy

I hope your geo finds a really good home!
The occe looks very cute!! How big do they get? I like the colours...kinda like my rams.

A couple of inches for males, females are quite a bit smaller. They're really interesting, the real fun will begin when the shells go in tomorrow :)

Not ideal for the community though Becky. :wink:

Sorry you had to rehome your geo, but congrats about your shellies! :)

Yep I'm hoping they'll breed! Not planning on trying to sell any young though.

Here's a little link if anybody wants to know about them, the videos are pretty cool :) http://www.cichlidforum.com/articles/l_ocellatus.php
