Hallo Axel,

it´s ok...

I would hold Mbipia and Neochromis always in groups of 7-9 males and 3-4 females. And then in big tanks with 120g or, however, an absolutly "more than enough" (mir fehlt das englische Wort für Überbesatz ;-) ) and no decoration in 75-90 gallons ...

Marco

Your english is much better than my German Marco ;) I think you mean to say "Än absolute minimum is 75-90 gallons with no decorations."

Vielen Dank.

Hello "me",

we didn´t mean the same. I mean a word in english that means the same as " too much fish" or "more than necessary". In german is it " Überbesatz"... :?

Formerly Axel was a teacher, I think he knows the word. :lol:
My school english is 15 years old and only used at holiday "one beer please" :D

Lol Marco, Ok I understand. I think the word for Ãœberbesatz is likely "Abundance" or maybe "overfilled" with tanks you can also say "Overcrowded" or "heavily stocked".

Let's ask Axel, Axel :?:

Hi Me,

yes you are 100 % right.
But although I was a teacher ( not for English), it is 45 years ago when I ended learning this language. In the meantime I only use it by writing in forums. And as nobody tells me my mistakes, I write as I think it.

Hey "me",

"overfilled" is a good word to describe this.

And, however, I´m younger but my english is much worse than Axels english. :D

Well I pretty much understand you both perfectly. I was thrown in a non english speaking country when I was 16 and had to learn the language fast, so since then I have usually been able to pick up foreign languages quicker than most. But German to me makes more sense than allot of languages. As soon as I realized Ãœberbesatz stance meant something like Abundance, it read very easily

"mir fehlt das englische Wort für Überbesatz".

"I forgot the english word for Abundance"




Much much easier than Portuguese!! :?

Any way max size can be added?


Lol Fern, That is how I first listed it, but the pics were showing up huge!! The ones that are kinda small are small on the website as well though. Are you looking to make the small ones bigger, or are you really looking for huge pics in high resolution? I am talking much bigger than my 24" monitor huge just to be clear.

:lol: I was referring to max size of the fish :lol:

I had 5 years of German in school, but that was a long time ago. Your English is much better than my German.

Worse yet, I spoke German fluently until age 7 or 8....40yrs later, can't remember a damn thing? Still remember the long, hot afternoons in my backyard with my dad and grandpa. Good ol' grandpa tried to get my father to let me drink some beer too.....no such luck?

John, I believe the simple answer is yes. I think I speak for all here when I say we are looking for those committed people who understand the importance of keeping these fish pure, IE they need to be kept in species only tanks, or at least with no other Vics as vics hybridize easily, and part of the reason for this order is that many vics in the US are indeed hybrids, and we are trying to correct this problem. We are planning on trading fry within the Cichlids of Victoria community as soon as we started breeding them so as to spread the new species far and wide to those that will help ensure their survival, if only in our tanks.

If that sounds like you, let it be known!
