Pseudotropheus elongatus II


After my aftermath last year of losing all but 6 malawi's, i have now a breeding pair of P. elongatus "yellow tail", 4 P. socolofi, 4 P. socolofi "albino" and 4 L. caeruleus. The only fish to have spawned so far are the P. elongatus yellow tails. Below are pics of the male and female and their 1 fry

The photo above shows the female after spawning

The photo above shows the male just prior to spawning showing his full breeding colors..

Below is a pic of him after spawning was completed and he had returned to his dull coloration - he does revert to nearly all the darkest blue with just a glimpse of the yellow

 

Below is pics of the only surviving fry 1 month after release, in the second pic there is just a brief glimpse of the yellow tail

The fry is already showing slight coloration, unfortunately i havenít seen the fry for about 2 weeks now, it was getting to the stage where it was leaving the saftey of the rocks to explore the surrounding areas and i believe has fallen prey to my eldest P. socolofi female My adult P. elongatus yellow tail is now carrying her second lot of fry and 2 have been rejected to early, they still have their yolk sacks attached to them and I have them separated in an aerated breeding compartment, its too early to tell if they will survive but will keep you updated on their progress
