Svert­ing,

Your ideas sound inter­est­ing, but are not well grounded. Try keep­ing them as you wish but the pur­pose of this Forum is to help insure the sur­vival of the species. If your fish try to spawn and fail in a large multi species aquar­ium the term “not a big prob­lem” is indeed a prob­lem.

You your­self are start­ing with tank raised fish so aren’t you start­ing with “lazy” fish? You might be con­fus­ing “lazy” with “tank adapted” fish or pos­si­bly “inbred” fish, which even hap­pens in nature, in small pools and streams to some degree.

The peo­ple here on the Forum (many of them) are mostly well expe­ri­enced breed­ers and their advice should be heeded for suc­cess in breed­ing.

A biotope envi­ro­ment as you you choose to do would be wonderful,but with­out lis­ten­ing to hose with expe­ri­ence you may be start­ing over again, through the fail­ures that oth­ers have gone thru.

Please, I don’t want to dis­cour­age you at all, but also try to lis­ten to those that give you advice on tank setups and spawn­ing do’s and don’ts.
Your desires on keep­ing them is a noble one and I wish you luck.

Hello Every­one, those Parosphromenus sp.“Sentang” (cor­rect is “Blue Line” — my mis­take ) Svert­ing will get from me. I pre­sented my Paros on our Cich­li­dae (!) forum and few peo­ple were intrested to keep them. I thought that it may be very sim­i­lar begin­ing with paros com­par­ing to my..:) I also wanted to keep paros with some oth­ers (Sphaery­this, and even copella.…) but very soon I saw that it isn’t a good way..

And now, after almost two years I breed­ing them reg­u­larly and I didn’t loose any of them !… And what is more impor­tant — I want to have another ones !!!

So, Sverting’s begin­ning look MUCH more pro­fe­sional than mine, and that’s why I will sent to Him 8x Parosphromenus sp. “Blue Line” with­out any fear :) — He will under­stand that keep­ing Paros is not one of reg­u­lar thing — it is a mis­sion! :)

Best regards!

Of course. If I was to suc­ces­fully breed Paros, then I will present them on the Upper­sile­sian Aquar­is­tic Asso­ci­a­tion, so don’t make me the devil of the hobby ;] I’ll most gladly con­tribute to the cause, but I will do it on my terms and in my way.

Whichever way I will go, I’ll make sure, that the aquar­ists of Upper Sile­sia will now about the fish, and surely, some will also try keep­ing and breed­ing them.


Btw, I added oak leaves and right now it became a real Black Water tank. Gh i around 6 right now, with the cor­re­spond­ing pH. The tank is peace­full and ready to house Paros. ANd as I said, if I were to face defeat on my terms, then I will try doing it your way, but not the other way around.


As to the fish. Pho­tos made by Marcin are some­thing, that keeps me wait­ing for young Parosphromenes since I first saw them. I made them a forstress, and if it falls, than it will be my defeat. If it comes to that, than I will try to ded­i­cate up to 3 smaller tanks to breed them enough to atone for my mis­takes. So don’t worry. I won’t make a dent in your mission.

Svert­ing, I wish you all suc­cess. If you are suc­cess­ful, then some­thing very valu­able will result: New expe­ri­ence for some advanced methods.
