notho and the Barry Cooper way
I do believe that I mentioned in my little monologue that I by no mwans was
insinuating that your tanks should be neglected nor did I assert that my
tanks were neglected. In fact my male Nothobranchius spec. Kilombero tank
is pristine, as well as the females. In fact I think the only tanks I had
mentioned that I give "benine neglect" were those that seem to prefer it,
which if you are curious you can go back and read about. My case was that
these animals are not the same as "Malawi cichlid" types needing massive
water changes and tons of attention, should someone need time elsewhere.
This is one of the largest reasons I started breeding Killifish as opposed
to cichlids. These are low oxygen fish without a doubt and as such are far
more lenient than the aforementioned large fish. Another reason I switched.
Ask anyone who saw my fishroom though, and they will tell you it is obvious
I spend 25 to 30 hours a week on them and there are only 36 to 40 tanks
operating at one time. I do think you had missed my point, Barry, but as I
said the notho information is accurate from what Ian said, with the
exception of the roadside squalor as I inserted that from some reading I've
done, and if you have any contention with his points well, I suppose you can
take it up with him.
Ps- I have never, nor will I ever, consider myself an expert on
Nothobranchius, as it is still a species that baffles me, with the
exception, of course, of N. geuntheri and N. korthause.
