Customer Comments

 
Hello, I came across your site and I am impressed. Lots of fish you cant get anywhere that I have seen. Prices are really good too. I salute you.
 
So here is my problem.  I'm a college student and my space only allows me to have a 10-gallon tank.  Ive had aquariums since I was a kid. I've had every fish known to man.
 
Now that I'm older I want more exotic fish such as Cichlids and the like.  But with my size tank what can I work with?  Since the size is a constraint I've thought of just having schools of tetras but I've been there done that.
 
Is there anything out there I could get away with 3-6 fish successfully?  I'll go down old roads again but I kinda want something new.
 
Thanks in advance.

Reply. Hello. Thank your for your complimentary comments. You mentioned Cichlids. They are very interesting fish, and many folks like you, who have kept fish for years, enjoy keeping Cichlids.

Even the medium size Cichlids need an aquarium with a lot more water than ten gallons, but the small Cichlids from Lake Tanganyika do very well in a smaller aquarium.

Your 10-gallon aquarium is a little too small for Brichardi and Leleupi, but I kept several nice pairs of Transcriptus in 10-gallon aquariums for many years. They did very well in the 10-gallon aquariums and raised quite a few babies for me. Click here to see one of a Marlieri, a Leleupi, and one of the Transcriptus that lived in a 10-gallon aquarium in my facility for many years.

Here is what I did. I put approximately eight young Transcriptus that were about 1" long in a 10-gallon aquarium with a very thin layer of gravel and a nice pile of rocks at one end. Within a couple of months two of the Transcriptus would form a pair, set up house keeping under the pile of rocks, and drive the other Transcriptus away from the pile of rocks.

After two of the Transcriptus form a pair, you will see some of the other Transcriptus hiding in the top corners of the aquarium. You must be very observant to see this change in behavior, and you must soon get the unpaired Transcriptus out of the aquarium, or the pair will kill them.

At the time that I was raising lots of Transcriptus, my brother and I had a "fish room" in our parent's home with about one hundred aquariums including about fifty aquariums that contained between 10 and 15-gallons of water. I would move the unpaired Transcriptus into another of these 10 to 15-gallon aquariums, then add a few more small Transcriptus to make a total of about 8 Transcriptus, and start the pairing process again.

A pair of these Transcriptus would spawn and carefully care for a new batch of babies every six or eight weeks. There were usually several different batches of babies in the aquarium, and each batch was a different size. The adult pair would drive the bigger fry, that might be 1/2" long, away from the rocks where the newest tiny babies lived.

Keeping and watching these Transcriptus was very exciting, and we observed many of interesting behavior patterns. But we do not breed and raise Transcriptus now, and we do not sell them. So you will need to search elsewhere for them. If you can find them, I think you will enjoy them.
