Thought I would also add a couple videos that I shot a while ago. Just havent had time to post them. Make sure to watch them in HD!

First up is my adult colony of Kasangas. Iv removed some rocks since the last video I took. Iv never had the first health issue with them in the entire time Iv had them. They really are just a super healthy, solid group of stunning Kasanga Red Rainbows.



Next up is one of my fry tanks. These are F1 fry off of the above adult colony.
As you can see, they are super vigorous fry and at some point of the video where I was able to get an in focus close up shot, you can see they are starting to show red dorsal fins and nice yellow sides... and this video was from a couple weeks ago when they were only about an inch!




Anyway, just thought I'd share. Hope you like the vids!

John

Thank you, Pam.

Ya know, I used to have a lot more rocks in this tank and that has never been an issue with high numbers groups in the past, But with this group that was not the case.

In my experience, high numbers groups can pretty much be set up with lot of rock(or castles! lol ) or very little structure. The numbers alone keep the aggression down no matter the set up. But Iv found that small numbers groups have done best for me with a single rock or two to ground the dominant male.

Anyway, even with 55 adults, I had a hyper dominant male develop and he kept everyone balled up in one end of the tank.

Have you ever had that happen? WHat did you do to combat this issue?

He wasn't able to do any damage due to all the swarming numbers. Just ruled in terror.

Anyway, I ended up having to just remove him. And that helped. But they had developed a swim pattern "memory". Where they just stayed all balled up in one end. You can imagine 55 trophs in the last foot of a 6 foot tank. Very frustrating. Not to mention they were not very productive.

Have you ever had that happen? The ingrained swim pattern thing? How did you deal with it?


Anyway, I then had to remove some rock... and lastly I blocked light from that one end so that they were not drawn to it. And they have broken the pattern and now swim the entire tank with very little favoritism to that end.

I'm sure had I not broken the pattern, another male would have capitalized on the wide open space and another hyper dominant situation would have been created.

I know they are now much more pleasant to look at and seem to be much more calm and I'm really glad about that!

Anyway, just thought Id share my experience....Thanks for reading. Who knew I was going to be involved with behavioral management!

John
