Guys,

I just think these are the coolest looking brichardi variant. However, there is little information on the internet. I was hoping some of the experts can help with additional information.

I found this link with good information but you need to do a yahoo translate to read it.

Thanks in advance for any additional information.

Pretty cool looking fish...
Are those first set of pictures doctored?? at all?? they seem to almost glow in a way like maybe a blacklight or some other special effect?

They are quite colorful tho and did the prices of what they were getting them for in 1999. But that is ten years ago too...

Thank you for the Link Thai

Bill

The colour of the fry in the link is a maybe a bit exaggerated although they are indeed very colourful. You probably have seen Ulwile fry. The colour in the (Fiery Fry) Namansi fry is similar but stronger saturated. We had a guy who had 20 of them and they started breeding with less than three inch and he considered them as less aggressive than other Brichardis. But i haven't heard from him for some time, don't know if he still has them and how they developed.

There isn't any info really out there. Even when you search some of the european sites, you find very little.



So far they are very active and eating well. They are out of the QT right now and into their home to give them some space.

Awesome pictures Donald

MJ, neat link... thanks.

The brichardi collected at Namansi were high on my list of must-have-onedays until I was convinced by somebody who kept them that they turn completely brown with time and are rather dull as adults. Would be interesting to see if that holds true for everyone or if it was just that particular group.

There are some pictures and topics on Namansi to be found on both this site's forum and our gallery.
You already know about the most popular dedicated to these fish as you've posted there, but here's the link again:

That must be after they get 4".

Right now, I doubt they will turn solid brown. When they are stressed, they actually turn kinda white.

Maybe, maybe not. I have no idea b/c I have not seen their fry in real life.


They are quite colorful tho and did the prices of what they were getting them for in 1999. But that is ten years ago too...

I hope not, cause I wouldn't buy them if they cost that much.

Thank you for the Link Thai

Yes, I use to have a colony of 30 ulwiles not too long ago.

The colour in the (Fiery Fry) Namansi fry is similar but stronger saturated.

Can't wait to see that! The Ulwile frys I had were more orange than yellow.

We had a guy who had 20 of them and they started breeding with less than three inch and he considered them as less aggressive than other Brichardis. But i haven't heard from him for some time, don't know if he still has them and how they developed.

I thought the same about my ulwiles when I had them. My ilangi were much more aggressive to me.
