Re: [Killietalk] RE: More Fish for West Coast Weekend!!!!!
I am in a quandry. They don't resemble any of the S. that I have seen
before. I picked up a pair at a TAKO auction and have had a tankfull since.
The males have a dark coloration overall that is bluish in color. Along the
dorsum of the older males the blue is beautiful. They have red lines and
bars that begin above the lateral line and cover half the body. Above the
lateral line lines are commone and intense. Below, a bared patern exists
with some gold showing through. They are very hard to describe because they
are very shy - especially the older adults. I had a problem a month or two
ago and lost almost all of them. I have only one large male and a few
juveniles left from over two hundred fish! Velvet! Because they are so very
secretive, I didn't spot the disease until the first dead floated!!! Their
tank is a solid block of hornworth and java moss. I have some eggs and a
few fish and will start again. Several of the local members had them at one
time or another. I will attempt to grab a couple of pair and send them to
someone who can ID them.
