A. jorgenscheeli problems?
Just something to stimulate some discussion regarding this fish:
What are the main stumbling blocks regarding this fish? For those of us who
view $200 for a pair of these guys as a bit extreme, I was wondering if
those of you who've managed to procure them would mind sharing their
successes (seem to be few, judging by the lack of appearance in the $6/pair
range in the BNL.. :P ) and failures with these fish with the rest of us, in
the hopes that we may avoid similar problems or find new solutions..
What kind of water (pH, temps, etc)?
Spawning habits (morning, afternoon, evening, mop preference, egg counts,
Natural habitat notes?
I've noticed that we seem to get most of our "stock" from Europe. What are
the Europeans doing to be "successful"? (Note: I use this term only because
it seems that the direction of supply seems to be pretty lopsided.. Europe
-> US.. I could be very wrong in my assumption here, which is why I'm asking
these questions.. :) ).
I've never kept jorgenscheeli, but I have seen a lone male.. It's a rather
nice fish, but I personally like Diapterons a bit more. It's a fish that
I'm keeping an eye out for (Waiting for that $100/pair range.. If you're
reading this and have a pair for $100 and can guarantee against DOA, I'm
your man! :)), but nothing I'm in a huge rush for.
PS: I remember reading in Scheel's book that this may be a "relic" type
species in Aphyosemion.. Has anyone else done any work regarding this?
