Hi,

Today I start a new aquarium with a couple of burundi´s (I need to find some more adult females). Here are the pics.











The aquarium is 130x45x50 cm and the filtration is provided by an Eheim 2260.



Cheers,
Diogo

What do you think about the aquascape and about their companions??!! They´re 6 Trophues kiriza.

Cheers,
Diogo

Love your tank and the pics of your fish. Sorry I am not qualified to make comments on the tank mates but I am sure that someone will come along shortly who will. :thumb:

Hi,

Some more news!!!

Today I manage to get 8 Frontosas burundi juveniles and semi-adult female. The kiriza will definately left because they are a stress cause for the Frontosas.

here is a video of the new guys...


And a vídeo of the Altolamprologus compressiceps "Gold Kasanga", that are starting to get some color...


By the way let me just say that I tried to put a couple of the Altos in the frontosas aquarium and what happened was a strange behaviour. They imediately start chasing the little guys. Do you think this is normal?

Cheers,
Diogo

I love your aquascape. I like the low cave work. :thumb:

Your burundi have excellent color too :thumb: Nice and blue. I cant wait for my burundi to get as large as your adults. :D

Oh, congrats on the spawn too !!!

Not sure what size tank you have (dimentions in inches) but for a colony of fronts you might want to go bigger. It looked like a 4 foot tank in a couple of the pics (but pics can be decieving ). If its just a 4 foot tank i would get a six foot long tank , put the adults and sub adults in it and use the smaller one for a grow out tank for the 8 small juvies. If you leave all those growing fish in a tank thats too small you will run into problems quickly. If your tank is six foot then ignore all i just said, i just wanted to let you know incase its a 75 gallon size tank...

I like the aquascape, its awesome. Its looks very comfortable maybe thats why your frontosas starting breeding... :lol:
Nice burundis, i like the pics of the juveniles too. Some people like to tumble the eggs and some let them hold. I think you should let them hold and see what happens. That's what I'm gonna do.

Hi,

Thank you all for the coments. The tank is an 85 gallon one. I really don´t know the measure in inches or foots! What I know is that it´s small for them and I´m planning another one.

For know they are getting along well with no conflicts. I´ll try to sort things out in the near future.

Cheers,
Diogo

You tank is actually a little more than 75 gallons. Which is far too small. For your group i would at least 180 or 200.

And also some of the others...
