Cryptoheros spilurus, a rear oldie

Post by buntbarsch on Mon Jan 25, 2010 9:50 pm

I have to admit that I got stuck on the beautiful Cryptoheros group lately. Can't help myself but I love these little Central Americans.

Cryptoheros spilurum used to be very comon in our tanks a number of years ago but have since then totally disappeared. Rumors say that these pretty little cichlids will soon appear on the list of endangered species. Central and South American cichlid having a rough time in their native habitats due to polution and deforestation. I count myself lucky to have received a pair from a good friend. Here are some photos.

I just have to get back to my early roots of fishkeeping and
get some CA's and SA's again.

For a black and white fish, they are amazing looking!

Thanks for sharing!
