Hi everyone. I'm Judy & I'm a newly retired RN. I've always been an animal person & have a riding horse, a dog & 3 cats. We always had goldfish & guppies when my kids were growing up but now I've decided I'd like to try my hand at breeding fish...& have found plecos & cichlids!!! I have 5 tanks, a 10G hospital tank, a 40G with Metriaclima msobo (1.5-2"), a 40G with ALFBN, a 20L with multis & a 55G with 2 huge goldfish (that I need to find a home for so I can get it ready for Tropheus Moorii Ilangi). Most of my fish, plants, supplies, etc., were obtained here on AB....any & all fish knowledge from internet forums and articles. I'm having so much fun with these fish!! 3 outta 12 of my Metriaclima have started to turn color...at least have blue on their top fins & are getting stripes across their nose, so I'm liking those odds but none of my 6 ALFBN have bristles. A week or so ago, I did a BIG water change with cooler water then eased the temp up slowly...was gonna see if these guys were ready to breed. Now I have 2 very fat BN...not bloat, they're active & normal poo...gravid? all females?? (See, I'm new...so new that I still enjoy water changes!) So anyway, hello to everyone! :ciao:
