Re: A Couple Questions
I will only answer your first two questions and let
others answer your other question.
Many years ago, I purchased two pairs of a
Chromaphyosemion species from George Maier's shop in
Chicago. In the drive home to Oklahoma City the fish
became chilled and were from that point on permanent
bellysliders. However, I placed them in a plastic
shoe box with a spawning mop and they did lay viable
eggs which hatched and were normal. So from this
observation bellysliders will produce normal young.
Most bellysliders are the result of some environmental
insult and not from poor genes. Therefore, if they
can and do produce eggs, the resulting fry should be
normal. The short answer is therefore NO.
Your second question can be answered in two ways - yes
and no. Yes you can put multiple pairs of different
species of Aphysoemion together and they will probably
not damage each other unless severely crowded.
However, if you ever are planning to separate those
fish and breed them, you will probably not be able to
match male with a female of the same species, Most
females of Aphysemion look identical. Therefore you
will never be able to match male with female and be
sure that you will not be producing hybrids.
