    Default A. Borellii or not.....

    So I took a much needed trip to the lfs today to get food supplies and more stress coat and to also get a pair of A. cacatuoides. To my disappointment they were out of a. cacatuoides but had some A. borellii. I decided to get all 4 of them to put into my fairly empty 42 gallon tank. Got a great deal on them I thought. They were selling them for $10.99 for one. I got all four for $25. Upon research when I got home I am having doubts that they are borellii. They look more like the steelblue variety. Which are hybrids. They have blue in the face and no other colors. One looks similar to but with a blue face....

    Wish I had my camera to take a pic for you all but that was unfortunately stolen from me.

    If I get a camera I will post pics of them. They are so cool looking!

    Found a great vid of what they look like!
    I have 3 that look identical to the male and one that looks like the female in the background.

    Pretty. They will probably color up better when more comfortable in the tank.

    I think I may just get a cheap digital camera to take a few pics. Congrats on the dsl Lady Hobs! I remember the feeling when going from dial up to dsl. It was AWESOME! Now in our new place we have cable and it is WOW compared to dsl. I got it mainly for my internet gaming but it is also nice for watching vids and uploading/ downloading pics!

    I am thinking they are the steel blue variety but I definately have 1 female out of the 4. Which is supposed to be next to impossible to have as they are hybrids. That is what I have been reading anyways.

    Today I noticed the female looking one of the 4 with a male digging a hole in the sand and rubbing all over each other and lip locking. Then they would go in the pit they made and rub the sand and then lip lock and rub against each other. I wish I had a camera to show everyone. It was so cool to watch it. They acted very much like my cons did when they would spawn. Now they are guarding that pit. I don't see any eggs but the sand is light in color.

    lol actually I was wrong. There are females. Anyway, if you fish are like that then it is sp. steelblue. Congrats on them mating already!

    I'm telling you guys its nuts! The A. Gibbicep I thought was a male I am now thinking it is a female because one of the male a. steelblue is trying to mate with it! They are guarding this little tiny clay pot I just put in there about 5 hours ago. They immediately took it over and started lip locking and what not! Must be something in the water cause my male and female betta are mating. He built a wonderfully huge bubble nest and she is fat with eggs. My cory's laid eggs last night(about 250), 4 of my endler females gave birth for a total of about 150 fry. Its nuts over here. I told my wife not to drink any of the water and she just gave me this odd look!
