Re: Electric Blue Jack Dempsey hybrid or not?

They were line bred by a French guy who's name I forget.
They are not a natural hybrid nor a mix of species.
They tend to be very weak and many youngsters die off.
The original form is a far better fish.Not a fan of Man made fish myself.

Re: green terror biotope

Thank you both very much for your replies.
It looks like a biotope community centered around A rivulus is almost impossible to create.
looks like I have two choices,artistic license or back to the drawing board.

Thanks again.

Hi all

I am trying to source information on the fish that can be found in the same waters as the green terror and failing.

Re: thorichthys ellioti

In general Thorichthys are for c/a cichlids quite peaceful,however ellioti/maculipinis are easily the most aggressive of the group.To aggressive for your size tank in my opinion.
