hello folks,

after many months of searching i am finally able to get hold of some P.nyererei (Ruti Island) from Europe Czech!
i hope these are good quality batch compare to those i got in thailand.... :(

and i really going to breed these batch from Czech, i ordered 2 males and 3 females around 2.5 inches
1 male i will in keep in my display all male tank.
Questions will the single male colorup? or he needs some females to color up?

and the rest, i will keep in a 17gallon tank for breeding.
is 17 gallon tank too small for breeding?
the fry will also be keep in another 17 gallon tank.

thanks for advice.

What else is in the display tank? My Igombe Island is colored up with mbuna, but I would say too aggressive for peacocks and haps.

I am keeping a breeding group in a 48x12 tank to provide for their aggressive nature and allow the fish room to escape from each other.

hello DJ,

my display tank is all peacock/hap and mbunas(labs and acei)
so 17-20 gallon is too small for breeding P.nyerreri?

can 17-20 gallon be used to house P.nyerreri fry?

thanks

I'd use a 20G for grow-out but would not keep adults in a 20G or with haps and peacocks.

i will use the 20gal for the P.nyerreri fry
as for mixing with haps/peacocks i will try it out... if it dont work...

maybe i really need to upgrade to a 119gallon 4*2*2 for my all male tank
and the below will be 67gallon 4*1.5*1.5 for P.nyerreri- 2 tier tank

i need to save up now... cheers!
