ste,
nice fish (and tanks!). Do you treat the choc gour tank to keep the pH really low, or have they acclimated to "normal" water these days?

Im lucky with my water, it comes out of the tap soft and very slightly acidic. After a couple of days with the bogwood and general tank acids with a lack of buffering it drops to around PH 6 -6.5
I tend to make keeping softwater fish look easy but i am a great believer in keeping fish that suit your water. Mine is ideal for south american fish and certain other acidic loving fish. I have never kept Malawis or hardwater livebearers as i cannot provide the correct conditions without a great deal of messing to get the water suitable.

Nice fish Wish i could purchase some unusual (not common) fish down this way. Is the chocolate gourami going to be a breeding project?

I picked up the chocolate gourami from the local shop, there were only two in the tank and the young lad did not have a clue as to what they were. Can you guess how much i paid ???? £2.50 each...now in my eyes that is the bargain of the century. I would love to breed them but ill have to source some more first and get a large group, apparently they are one of the hardest fish to breed and sexing is very difficult.
I have a book by Dr Herbert axelrod that was published in 1973, in this it describes in detail the only documented spawning of that time and comes complete with pictures. They are a mouth brooding anabatoid that requires very soft acidic warm water. There are one or two breeding reports on the net but none with pictures so they cannot be taken seriously. So despite searching for breeding details it seems that these lovely fish have never been or very rarely been spawned.
I will carry on doing my research until i find some more then i will start a project with them, until then i am just enjoying them in my discus tank.

Oh yeah Albertros i forgot to mention. If you struggle to find rare/unusual fish up your end, i post a lot of fish through ebay and as long as i had a payment upfront i would certainly buy/post you some fish. What do you like to keep???

Right here are some pics of my new Pelvicachromis Taeniatus 'Moliwe'
The 'Moliwe' stands for the place in africa the fish was found. There are over 12 different regional variants of Taeniatus, 'Moliwe' is one and i also own a breeding pair of 'Bipindi' these are now fully grown and are stunning fish when in full breeding colours.

MALE AND FEMALE 'MOLIWE'.

AND THIS IS THEIR NEW HOME.

THIS IS A FULLY MATURE 'BIPINDI' IN FULL SPAWNING COLOURS.

Thats why i built my fishroom, because everytime i go to the fishplace i say to myself right no more fish and then come out with three bags full lol.
A shop that is not so local to me is getting a shipment in from South america on thursday so im currently clearing some tank space for some more raritys.. i cant wait, it should be good, they specialise in rare and hard to get species, and im just waiting for some new dwarf cichlids to last me the winter......
