Pseudotropheus sp. "Acei"

Post by Micheal on Sat Jul 11, 2009 5:33 pm

I received my first Acei in the mail Thursday. One was dead on arrival but the other 6 are doing well so far. I used drip acclimating to get them adjusted to my water. After an hour of adjusting to the water they are now in a 20 long tank where they will stay for a couple of weeks quarantine. I have 10 more coming this week from a different place so my plans are to split the 2 groups up with half of each going into my 2 tanks. I figure this should make sure that I have a good diverse pool of genes when they start to breed.

The guy gave me credit without having to send a photo. Really nice fish. I was able to go home last night for a few hours and was very impressed with the quality of the fish.

How are your acei doing? I really enjoy mine. They are not too aggressive and get along well with others. Very Happy

All of them that made it through shipping are doing good. I split the original 6 into 2 tanks and the other 9 little guys are in a grow out tank until the get a little bigger. Don't see to much action at the top but then again my groups are small. Maybe when the smaller guys grow enough to add into the 125 I might get to see then act more like I have read about.

I don't see much top action from mine either. I only have five. They do swim around together at times, but more at mid-tank level, just above the rocks. They seem to spend most of their time at the bottom of the tank with their faces in the sand looking for food.

I love Acei myself. Mine do a lot of swimming in the mid to top range.

Plus I think their colors are just awesome.
