Sewellia marmorata fry

Postby ch.koenig » Mon Oct 10, 2016 1:30 pm

Hi all
Finally I could take some pics of Sewellia marmorata fry. Length about 11 mm, bustling about last 3 weeks.

An adult female

and a male

Pattern of S. marmorata fry is already very complex as in Sewellia SEW03 from January 2016 at 20 mm length as seen here

Image

At the size of 10/18 mm SEW03 looked like this (November 2014)

Image

Specimen at left is about the same age as the specimen of 20 mm
S. marmorata fry differs from all Sewellia fry I had till now (S. lineolata, S. SEW01, SEW02, SEW03 and Sewellia speciosa).
I hope to get pics of younger S. marmorata fry soon.
Cheers Charles

That's great news!
S. marmorata have become one of my favorites, if not my favorite, hillstream. Unfortunately, my group have not spawned.
Keep us posted!

Thanks all.
Smaller ones just not to fix.
Seems, that S. marmorata is not so easy to breed (like S. speciosa, S. elongata, SEW04)
A thick layer of coarse pebbles along the backside of the tank (140x30x30) and food twice a day seems to have changed their mind. SEW03 have the same set-up and were easy to convince.

Thanks all.
No idea, Michael. Just one of this size. The rest is tiny and hiding well/staying away from light. Just tails moving in the pebbles.

Congratulations to Forest Hills. I hope you get more of them.
I have to move before the house is taken down, finally found a new place, so mine could stop.

Thanks, Charles,

Looks like 3, about 7mm, from the same spawn.

Not prolific :(

I'm trying for a good photo, no luck so far -- they do not like coming to the front :(

Good luck with the move!
