50l linkei was cre­ated by pol_​de_​gezzzmol
Hello,

I am a new mem­ber from Bel­gium. I requred 5 parophromenus linkei true a con­tact of this site. Here are some pic­tures of my tank setup.











I have been bit­ten by the paro virus and I would like to require some other species in the future. But first I will try to bread the linkei’s I have got. It shoul be one cou­ple and their three off­spring. For the moment they are all liv­ing toghether in a 50l tank. As soon as one of the 20l tanks is avail­able I will seper­ate the par­ents for a spawn­ing attampt.

Hello Fred­erik.

Nice to see you have got some fish and that you want to breed the linkei’s.

I would like to say some­thing to the set up though, — and I don’t mean to start out being ‘crit­i­cal’ :) but .… when I see the pho­tos I can see that there are a few other species in there and although they may come from around the same kind of areas, — they are very dif­fer­ent in their require­ments.
The lit­tle hill­stream loach is such a lover of mov­ing waters, in fact as far as I remem­ber from when I once had them, they really depend on it because of the con­tent of oxy­gen in mov­ing water.
And the paros pre­fer still or if any­thing just very very slow mov­ing water.
Hill stream loaches and paros are really not good com­pany :huh:
I just had to men­tion that, — but its very good that you are going to sep­a­rate them into a breed­ing tank, that will be a lot better.

Well­come on this forum Fred­erik!
I’m glad to read that you plan to sep­a­rate the par­ents in order to get off­spring. It’s a good deci­sion to expand that small linkei fam­ily, so I wish you much success.

The sewellia’s are indeed not the most suit­able fish to keep with paro’s. There are 2 sewellia’s in the tank, these are off­spring of only 2-​3cm long. They have been there for some time and I just do not have the space to move them. Sewellia’s live in hill­stream biotope. When in spring the melt­wa­ter causes the rivers to expand and flood other areas, the sewellia’s move to still waters to lay their eggs. I agree that they need oxy­gen, every fish needs oxy­gen. I have been debat­ing this numou­rus times on other forums. The paro tank has quite still water and the sewellia’s will be moved to a tank more suit­able as soon as I can deter­men the sex.
In the tank of the paro’s there are also a lot of shrimp, I believe these shrimp do live in the same biotope as the paro’s. And I hope these shrimp can be an additi­nal food source for the paro’s. Now I feed them black mos­quito larve and Daph­nia pulex or moina.

Thats good to hear, then :) … I couldnt see that they were small. I was just a bit sur­prised to see that dif­fer­ent fish together.
I wont pre­tend to know a lot about the sewellias :) it sounds like you know them much bet­ter. I just know that I had some at some time, and I wasnt pay­ing enough atten­tion to their dif­fer­ent needs regard­ing flow of water.
So I didnt want to start a dis­cus­sion for sure, — and I am glad to hear they arent sup­posed to stay.

The shrimps, yes for sure live in same biotope :)

Wel­come to the forum, Fred­erik!

What water val­ues do you have in your tank? I tried to keep shrimp in my paro tanks and made the expe­ri­ence that they only sur­vive at pH-​levels above 5,0. As soon as my pH-​level was around 4,5 the shrimp van­ished.
The plants in your tank give me the impres­sion that your pH is not that low .….….…
