I just received my first killies and have never seen behavior like this =
1) Cross breeding - I have an N. rachovii trying to breed with an =
eggersi, leaving his own female alone (she might be too small). I =
also have an an F. amieti trying to mate with anything that moves, =
mostly other members of Fundulopanchax.
2) Aside from the amieti, the other Fundulopanchax's are just lying on =
the botton of the tank staring off into space. They are not terribly =
Water pH is slightly acidic, and relatively hard. These are rather =
bizarre fish in comparison to tropicals. some are very active =
swimmers, while others actually lie on the bottom of the tank. I will =
separate them for breeding next weekend, but just wanted to make sure =
that I wasn't doing something wrong in the meantime.
I have 3 pairs Fundulop's in my "aggressive" 10 gallon tank, 3 pairs =
Nothos and one albino gardeneri pair in my "docile" 10 gallon tank. =
The docile Nothos tank appears much more active.
Is this normal? I suppose I am more concerned about the =
Fundulopanchax tank at this point as I have never seen fish resting on =
the bottom of the tank (unless they were sick). The regular gardeneri =
is large, and I would expect him to be a bit more active in the tank.
I don't see any gasping or signs of distress, only what appears to be =
laziness. The water is very clean.
If there are some species that are known to be more active than others, =
Many thanks in advance.
