Ready to come back....

Post by Biulu on Tue Jan 24, 2017 2:12 pm

I have just arrived at my hotel close to Schiphol (Amsterdam) airport. I came here with a detour, visiting an aquarium wholesaler where I picked up scarlet badis, blue badis and thicklip gourami.

The shop was very kind to allow me to visit their supplier to choose the fish myself as they were not sure they had female badis. You can imagine that I feel incredibly privileged and lucky!

Here is a picture of the fish in the bags; I will now need to repackage them to fit them into the suitcase together with all my Dutch goodies!

In another shop I got P. taeniatus from Nigeria. Anybody that has experience with the Nigerian taeniatus and can give me some tips?

The Nigerian taeniatus we see most is the red. It's a linebred fish with no geographic origin known. They are fairly delicate til they become established. Not overly aggressive, and pretty. Temp 26, pH 6-7.5, adaptable.

Yay! I'm glad you were able to visit while you were there!
What shop did you go to?
I miss the Netherlands so much, I had a great time during my visit there.

Everything arrived well. I came home pretty late and only unloaded the fish.

Today I have done some rearranging and I am happy to see that the taeniatus pair is already bonding and the badis are starting to come out and exploring their new grounds.

oh my ! Those Pelvicachromis taeniatus 'Nigerian red' are defenitely gorgeous and I really hope you get some babies to share with us.
PLEASE let me us know about this!
I'm glad you were able to finally get female badis and they are all looking great!

I could not see an egg spot on the Plakat so I agree it should be a male. The rest of the fish look great. Good luck with the Plakat it looks a little rough.
