This is the male (he is not photogenic in the least). He was wild-caught apparently. He is also about double the size of his daughter.

Well the trio of uberis I was planning on selling if I could determine whether one was female or not, gave me a surprise the other day.

Turns out I did have a female as her and the biggest male spawned and now he is guarding a whole nest full of fry.



He is being a good father. I saw him chasing his brother and sister away from the nest the other day and there is quite a number of fry in there.

So selling has been postponed until the fry are a bit bigger.

Yeah. However, once they leave the nest the dad loses almost all interest in them unlike with splendens where the father seems to be a bit more protective and continues to watch out for them.

Dusted off the camera and snapped some shots of my burdigala tank. This tank houses two adult males (one is the son of the original pair) and two adult females (one is the daughter of the original pair). There are also several fry and juveniles of various ages swimming around. The two I have seen look male, and at the time I was taking these shots the father was guarding a nest.




Adult son


Original female


Juvenile male

They also have three sisters and one brother in another tank. Here is one of the full sisters.
