Breeding Laetacara curviceps (South American dwarf cichlid)

Postby ste12000 » Fri Oct 12, 2007 9:22 pm

Yes ok i know its nothing too special or unusual and im not going to win an award but theres a small story behind the spawning and i thought you might want to share...
After wasting a 30mile trip to the areas best shop looking for unusual Dwarfs(they had nothing at all except a couple of Taeniatus 'Moliwe' which i bought)
On the return journey i decided to pop into my local shop, they have a good selection but nothing outstandingly rare or unusual,As this is my local i already own every dwarf they have ever sold, my mate Pete guided me to a tank of Laetacara curviceps. I had never seen them in the flesh before and was instantly impressed, even in the stressful shoptanks the colour shone and i soon picked a sexed pair and was on my way home.
Back in the fishroom it was the usual dilema of where to put yet more new fish! I admit the Laetacara curviceps were dumped into a small bare tank except for a huge ball of java moss and the Pelvicachromis 'Moliwe' received the best tank and all the attention, The curviceps were not seen for days, they were extreamly shy, cowering under the filter every time i went near the tank. I eventually made room in the tank next to the 'Moliwe' and decorated it with moss/fern plenty of wood and two broken peices of coconut shell right against the front glass(ideal for photographing spawning). The Laetacara curviceps still did not venture out even when offered food so i resorted to trickling bloodworm into dark corners, this continued until tonight(10 days).
After moving a couple of tanks around tonight i sat on the floor and couldnt believe that the male curviceps was right at the front(this was the first clear glimpse of him in 10days) not only was he at the front he was sat over the coconut shell and proudly fanning a fresh batch of eggs:) .. Iv bred plenty of fish before but this must rank as one of the most pleasing. Funnily though the male does all the work and the female is still hiding around the back(typical,just like my house). iv included a few pics and will keep you updated.

My family think im mad!!! i have spent half of today on my stomach in the fishroom watching and photographing the Laetacara.. Oh ok yes i am mad but arnt we all.....

The females been sharing responsibility today, she has been fanning and guarding the eggs as much as the male, last night i had'nt seen her at all since i bought them 11 days ago,today shes been out all day. They are both stunning fish but look a lot darker in the tank due to the subdued lighting(18inch tube over two 18x18x12 tanks) The flash shows of the colours to perfection and im quite pleased with the shots.
My rams also spawned again last night and a few have fungused today but upto now the young pair are doing a great job of looking after the eggs(time will tell)..
So everything is rosy in the fishroom and just how i like it..BUSY BUSY BUSY.
