Sp.44 hybrid?

Postby BakerChick » Tue May 05, 2015 8:25 pm

Is it true that a sp.44 will make hybrids with other fish? What are these other fish that they will hybridize with? I'm making plans to buy some tank mates for my sp.44 female and I do Not want to accidentally get a fish that she will hybridize with.

Pretty much any mouthbrooder will crossbreed with any other mouthbrooder unless there are fish of their species for them to spawn with instead.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Let her release fry in the tank, and they are most likely to get eaten by the other tank mates.
