Any body know what you should pay for these guys as young adults
Are they scalare or leos?
Think they are classed as Scalare seen some with red spots they looked pretty good.not a clue on price though..
Scalare, I can get 6 young adults for £90 just not sure if it's a good price tho
If they are wild I would think that is a good price.
Matt are these from TA ?
Yes simon, had a good look at them yesterday, I'm not convinced they are surinam, maybe rio nanny ?
There are two potential pairs in them I was tempted myself but funds are a little short. They are nice fish not sure if they are wild or descendants of wild fish, never heard of them before and cant find a lot on them.
Think I'm going to get them, if I have any luck breeding them I'll give you a bunch of fry to grow on
Got these, nice fish, unfortunately the I lost the large male, no idea what happened, he went totally blind, swimming into everything then died .... gutted ... still got 5 tho hopefully will breed
Finally got a pair out of these guys, fed them like crazy since I got them, big angels as well, not altum big but bigger than any other angels I've seen. 3rd time of laying today so fingers crossed
Good news keep us posted.
Thought you were selling these Matt??
Keep me posted how you get on, I can talk you through artificially rearing them if they raise them
Was going to sell them but couldn't let them go. Had the old tale of I wanted discus again ....... so I set up a new discus tank as well .
LOL always a winner
Trying something new with the little discus, very little beefheart, alot of freeze dried blackworm and brine shrimp to combat bloating that I have had problems with because of the blackworm. Early signs are good, growing well.
pterophyllum scalare essequibo the Surinam angelfish The natural range of this species covers parts of Colombia, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, Peru and Brazil. It’s found in numerous river systems, including the Rio Oyapock, Rio Essequibo, Rio Ucayali, Rio SolimÃµes and the main Amazon drainage. It also occurs in various rivers in the Brazilian state of Amapá. Wild fish are rare in the hobby these days though, with the vast majority of the ones on sale being mass-produced in the Far East and Eastern Europe. Larger size and red spots are identifying traits of this sub-species.
