We have Cichla temensis, or temensis Peacock Bass at both locations! These are very difficult to get but we are happy to report great success with this recent shipment! Great size and at $16.99 a great price!
another crap! id like to grab a trio of these..but they get HUGE.. biggest of Peacock Bass species..
biggest problem for me is..I cant get down there until after Aug 15th..our car is inpounded. I hope they have 3 left come then. But if not oh well..Yeah, they look fantastic though....if you can accomodate them, I highly recommend. That being said, they will take some time to reach monstrous sizes. They are also the easiest to tell apart from all the other cichla.
They are not difficult to wean off live that is for sure. big appetite, they don't go long before they try something else when the usual is not offered. Ours are eating feeder guppies by the net full at the moment. This is best on arrival as they need to refill their gas tanks so to speak. They are in fantastic shape.It should be easier to get them to eat dead food when they are young and small. I got 2 Ocellaris a while back when they were only about 2 inches and I have been feeding them frozen blood worms and Piscene Energetics Mysis Shrimps.
The difference in markings in juveniles is not very distinct between these two species. Generally since they are being commercially bred, it is safe to say the farm knows what they are breeding. We have to have trust in the farm. We are planning on putting a bunch in the display so it will be interesting to see them develop!was just there and saw these guys,
can't tell for sure by looking at them what type they are but do look to be in great health.
for 16.99 dosen't really matter what type they are.
