Testing the water-Salvinis?

Postby capester » Mon Apr 04, 2011 12:20 am

Hi everyone. Just testing the water (and jumping the gun!)- I have clutch of Salvinis that I am raising half myself and letting the parents raise the rest- the parents are currently winning! The female is stunning bright yellow and around 4.5 " and is f1. The male is 7.5" and wild caught and showing a lot of blue/green on the body and red in the fins. Both are gorgeous, quality fish and hoping that the fry will be to.
Just wishing to see if there was any interest in them when they are an inch or so? Cheers

Here are some (pretty terrible) pics :text-imsorry: - at least you get the idea! They have managed to breed in a S.A. community tank with 2 other adult male Salvinis and loads of other fish. I was worried about aggression but they have been fine, chasing fish away that come too close but not attacking or relentlessly chasing any which surprised me.

Pair- the male wouldn't keep still!

Stunning pair of fish, really takes me back as we kept these about 15+ years ago, when they're big enough to sell then put the ad up here by all means and also try the ac. :handgestures-thumbup:
