I have a few mystery females due to poor tagging AND wilds jumping!

Well I had a tank full of rutilans 'green' that were growing out. I then added a single brownorum fry to this tank.

Unfortunately, one day while doing a tank clean I thought I'd sucked up the brownorum and chucked it out on the garden.

Then I noticed one of my 'rutilans' didn't look like the others. I separated it out from the juveniles and put it in with the adult rutilans to see if it would colour up properly.

This is the colour it has stayed and it is now fully grown. Also it has outstripped all my rutilans greens in growth. They seem to take at least a year to reach full size, and mystery fish is already there.

Did you have fish manage to hop from one tank to another? That's a pretty amazing feat.

I have this uneasy feeling that what I have been calling burdigala (and what were sold to me as burdigala) are in actual fact uberis, but can't prove/disprove it. Wish some species weren't so close in appearance!

What mine? They were the best two out of about 20 blurry ones haha. It seems like with wilds just as you get the camera focused ready and the perfect shot lined up they swim off.

Haha mine tolerate about two seconds of me blinding them with the flash on the camera and then they high-tail it. I usually have to bribe with food if I want them to sit in one spot.

Sound like you have some ferals on your hands Efg321 haha

Since I am cut up about one of my favourite wilds (uberis female) being really sick, I thought I would post some pictures of a few of her offspring. There are 20 more in a grow-out, but these ones live with their father in the tank. There are three males, one definite female and one I think is female but I rarely see.








Very feisty female. She chases around her dad and her brothers all the time.


Youngest male just starting to show colour.

Haha I had to get the grindals out to bribe them. Otherwise my shot would have just been of some fish hiding in the leaves.

He is very nice looking. Do you know what he is hybridised with?
