Apistogramma cacatuoides have fry!!!

Post  ciscosdad on Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:47 pm

Let me start this by saying my 20H is ugly.  I decided I was going to change it over to a plant tank today.   I just finished getting the floramax in a second 20H and was about to drain the ugly tank when I saw her.  A pissed off mom!  She had a cloud of free swimmers around her.  The Apistogramma viejita I got at the last club meeting really like each other and blessed me with a spawn.  I didn't condition her, only eating flake and freeze dried worms, so I was not expecting it.  So needless to say the plant tank is on hold.  now I need to scrounge around to find something to feed these guys.  This is my first Apistogramma spawn i'm guessing bbs or micro worms?  Any help is appreciated.   I will try to get some pictures of them if I can, just remember I know the tank looks like crap. Thanks.

Cisco...  cheers 
I've got a few cultures of MW's running you're welcome to one... as does a few other members.  In a pinch, I have had success with a product called: "First Bites" by Hikari... Others might be able to help ya out with bbs... Bill 
p.s.  Keep me in mind when you're ready to sell-off some apisto's!  Bill Still

Thanks for the worm offer. Not sure when I would be able to get over to pick it up. Are you anywhere near 288 and hull? This week is crazy heck every week is crazy. If I can raise them up i'll be happy to share. Its my first spawn of any apisto, so hope I can do it.

I just set up a new culture.. you can take the new one or grab the one that provided my seeding effort... That one was started on 2/2...still viable.. but I'd also start a new batch from it.. Bill

Ok I need your help. According to apistogramma.com These fish are not Apistogramma viejita but are A. cacatuoides. Anyone that is good with Apistogramma ID? I am new to them and not sure what I am buying sometimes. I just want to make sure I don't keep a spawn of crosses.
