I have been maintaining E.grahami from a wild import in 2003. I keep a
conservation item in loads of tanks in case a major tank crash through pH or
whatever cause wipes a stock out. I just commited the cardinal sin in
putting all my stock in one big tank. I mean all my young et al. The whole
I sweated over a couple of weeks & fed our usual June diet of mosquito
larvae & Daphnia. The mosquito's did their job & the fish produced 50 eggs
today with most showing development ( I left them alone for a week ).
I'm willing to exchange eggs of these to the AKA Epiplatys group. Please get
in touch off group.
In our June charity auction we sold this fish (not mine) so it's nice to see
this fish is still going strong.
Epiplatys sp. are really fantastic fish but hold a lower place to other
genera. It would be great to hold a role call of what sp. are in the US.
What about Ps.annulatus? We still have these in the UK - even the true
Monrovia (red/blue) form. Mostly we have the yellow form showing yellow in
the anal & dorsal fins. This was unknown in the old days but seems to be the
norm in wild imports these days.
If the Monrovia form is still in the US does it compare with Scheel's
Where did this form originate from in the US?
Always had a soft spot for Epi's.
