#216 interbreeding chiclids

Posted by fish man on 01 April 2004 - 01:11 AM in Off Topic Lounge

[FONT=Times][SIZE=1][COLOR=green] :D

I have been a fish hobbiest for about 18 years and have had hundreds of types of fish over the years. about two years ago I had a texas chiclid (cichlasoma carpinte) and a managuense produce offspring. the new breed of fish are starting to spawn themselves, I was wondering how common this combonation might be or if at all. if not at all, does anyone know who to talk to about documentation and naming of the species? ;) I would like to hear about anyone elses experience with cross breeding :) I even have pictures of the parents protecting the swarm of fry.the pair of mismatched chiclids were a breeding pair no matter what tank they were moved to. the male texas chiclid was eventually killed by one ov my red devils. the offspring are very pretty and are in their own large aquarium. they litteraly are 50/50 of the two types of chiclids, and are very aggressive :angry:
