    DefaultJulidochromis marileri - Success

    I had a pair of J. marlieri that spawned in a community tank and raised a couple fry successfully. Six weeks ago I moved them to their own tank in the hopes of starting another Tanganyikan colony. Today while doing my weekly water change I noticed at least 8 tiny fry - success! I hope they raise fry as well as my two J. ornatus colonies.




    Julidochromis marlieri video ... look closely for the tiny fry swimming under a hovering, watchful mom.

    I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I move pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. I also take full advantage of Ziss & Marina water circulating breeder boxes. African Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have gotten more interested in catfish - corys & BN plecos in the past 12 months.

    Interested in some fry if you're selling when they are of size

    Will let you know how this colony comes along. I am keeping them the same as J. ornatus so hopefully it goes well. If so in about 6 - 8 weeks they should be some big enough to sell. They start off really small.

    Yes this genus is great no question. Starting with J.ornatus I have really been liking the colonial Tanganyikan species. Just posted some video from the J. marlieri tank this morning.

    Thanx for posting the video Victor, and congrats on your success. I love the Julies too.

    Now that BC Aquaria photo/video issues have pretty much been worked out I renewed my premium membership to the site. Less ads the better!

    The J. marlieri are pretty tiny but they are taking live brine shrimp naplauli and I always have micro worm cultures on the go.

    In a couple weeks when they look a bit more like juveniles I will post another video link.

    Julidochromis marlieri video ... I promised an update when the fry were @ 2 weeks. In the video you can see that older fry are starting to colour up as young juveniles. The largest juvenile fry are about 10 mm (1/2 in). You can see various sizes in these young Julidochromis, my assumption is different hatchings, all getting along well - loving these colony breeders.
