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
At the size of 10/18 mm SEW03 looked like this (November 2014)
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.
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.
Hope to be setting up a 2.00x40x40 next year so i can start keeping different Sewellia species again.
Cheers forf the pictures!
