    Question To breed T-bar Cichlids?


    0 Not allowed!
    Basically I have stumbled upon an amazing lfs, that has the widest variety of cichlids I've seen to date. From electric blue Jack Dempseys, 5 species of Apistogrammas in male and female. Blue, red and yellow acaras, green terrors red terrors, at least 7 geophagus species and not to mention african species. They even have shell dwellers, same species FinalJenemba keeps.

    And don't get me started on their Pleco range . . . . . They had at least 50 species, including L046, first time I've seen them in real life. 99 for a 1/2inch juvie

    So, should I change my plan of breeding firemouths to breeding T-bars? My pH sits really steady at 7.5, filtered with a 600l/h sponge filter and a Juwel 406 canister. No plants, loads and loads of river stones, caves, bogwood. Oh and its my 48G I'm talking about here.

    I've read they are easy-ish to breed and can breed on the substrate/large stones/wood.

    One last mention, if anyone has any alternative cichlids I could try to breed in that tank I'd love to hear from ya, I'm sure this new lfs will certainly carry them.
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I personally think T-bars are a really underrated fish. I think they're absolutely gorgeous and have always wanted one. I love their blue eyes. I'm sure they would be a lot better tempered than the firemouths too.

    T-bars are all over the place here because they're so easy to breed -- they're closely related to Convicts, and everyone knows how easy they are to breed.

    are we talking Cryptoheros sajica or Apistogrammoides pucallpaensis? Both common names are T bar

    Man, I would love to see your adult mated pair of those. They are a virtual rainbow!

    Awesome fish! I like those a lot. There was a gal here a few years ago that had a huge tank full of firemouths and sajica.

    Sajica are fairly easy to breed. I had a pair when I was like 13 or so. Had a whole bunch of them fast. About as difficult as Convicts. Pretty fish. They have a few new color morphs available in the wild forms. Pretty as well.

    Well having googled some pictures I must say those fish are really gorgeous in breeding colour.

    I do have people who are interested in my firemouths, so I might sell them and go for the T-Bars. Since T-bars are scarce here I may be able to cover my aquarium costs by selling fry when I get them.

    Picked up T-bars, I now have 1 confirmed male, 1 confirmed female, and 1 who is just a wee tad too small to sex just yet. All are the cutest little juveniles imaginable

    Fingers crossed they mature and breed
