Re: [Killietalk] Killietalk Digest, Vol 58, ??RE: Simpsonichthys spp
I have raised the following Simpsonichthys spp in the past:
S. flammeua Nova Roma
I just ordered a pair of S. constanciae which I am confident will not be problematic but anything in particular you think I should be aware of please feel free to provide some input.
I ordered 30 eggs of S. magnificus. I know these are a difficult sp with a much longer incubation period than most others in this genus.
I tried to hatch purchased eggs in the past but had no success.
These are the species that I feel the least confident about.
I have been in AKA off and on since 1968 and have bred and raised over 100 species. So I do have a bit of experience. I have been frustrated in my efforts to raise many killies in my new fish room located on SE corner of Washington State where the summer temps are regularly over 110*F for weeks at a time. I has caused be to give up on killies but I have always liked Simpsonichthys and they are better suited for my conditions than Austrofundulus spp are by far. I have a cellar than rarely exceeds 80*F available for incubating eggs or setting up spawning tanks to get me through the Summer.
On an unrelated fish subject I am breeding Peckoltia sp L134 aka Leopard Frog Peckoltia Plecos. It is among the most beautiful of the small fancy Plecos. They only grow to 3 inches. I have created a waiting list for those who wish to get F1 juveniles. If anyone is interested, please contact me off list. I have ~50 fry and some spawns still in caves but there won't ever be an unlimited supply. It takes me about four months to grow them to 1 inch which is much faster growth than many plecos like H. zebra.
