Mo Betta Fich Updates
Posted April 10, 2008 at 06:08:06 PM by Bean in the Obsessions category
Time for some FICH UPDATES!

I have gotten rid of 4 fich so far, numbers 3, 8, 9, 16, for various reasons. I got $40 store credit for them.

I bought 3 juvenile Malawi's (2 Yellow Labs and some other random Zebra). I can tell them apart, so they get numbers. I still can't quite tell the fry that were in the tank when I got it apart, so they don't get numbers yet. At any rate, this brings the official fich roster to:
1 - Aulonocara jacobfreibergi (Peacock, "Lemon Jake")
2 - Aulonocara hybrid (Juvenile "Strawberry Peacock")
3 - Red zebra-based hybird or a peacock... not sure. A big mean fucker. [SOLD]
4 - Metriaclima estherae (Male, "Red Zebra")
5 - Metriaclima callainos ("Cobalt Zebra") or Metriaclima estherae ("Red Zebra")
6 - Cynotilapia afra (Male "Cobue")
7 - Tropheops macrothalmus ("Red-headed Mac")
8 - Aulonocara hybrd (Peacock w/slight orange tinge) [SOLD]
9 - Metriaclima greshakei (Dull, "Red Top Ice Blue") [SOLD]
10 - Aulonocara hybrid ("OB Peacock")
11 - Labidochromis caeruleus ("Yellow Lab")
12 - Cynotilapia afra (Female "Cobue")
13 - Tropheus duboisi
14 - Metriaclima greshakei (Big and colorful, "Red Top Ice Blue")
15 - Cynotilapia afra (Female juvenile, "Cobue?")
16 - Melanochromis joanjohnsonae (mean, "Exasperatus") [SOLD]
17 - Labidochromis caeruleus (Larger juvenile, "Yellow Lab")
18 - Labidochromis caeruleus (Smaller juvenile, "Yellow Lab")
19 - Unknown zebra... light blue w/ blue/black stripes.

I bought a 10 gallon tank (and accessories) so that I can use it as a hospital tank and or prison cell for mean fich and or a place to raise baby fich (so the others don't eat them). It worked out good, as I was able to use my previously mentioned store credit to absorb most of the cost. Right now, fich 4 is in there recovering from a whooping. Somebody shredded his fins and bit most of his tail fin off.

And to top it off, my OB Peacock (number 10) finally spit her fry into the Texas Holey Rock. I don't know how many survived... I've only seen 2 so far.
