Neolamprologus Niger: conditions in the aquarium photo

Hello dear friends. In today’s article, I would like to talk with you about one interesting aquarium fish from the tsikhlovyh family, which is rarely found in amateur aquariums.

Black dwarf lamprologus comes from the African continent. Homeland fish habitat is Lake Tanganyika.

Unfortunately, this fish is extremely rare when it is found in black color, as there are several color options in nature.

The taxonomic description of a hydrobiont is based on descriptions of a fish that was just caught from a lake. Indeed, in the event of stress situations in nature, the color of the body of the fish changes to black slate or brown.

But, as a rule, the color of the lamprologus can change from the color of the rocky underwater landscape. The most attractive both in my account, are lemon and orange color.

If you believe the data of the discoverer of these fish, Max Poll, a black lamprologus can grow to a maximum of 8 centimeters, but in ordinary life their size almost never exceeds 6 centimeters. It is necessary to keep the fish out of the requirements of all types of lamprologists:

  • Water hardness: 10-20;
  • Active reaction environment: 7.2 – 8.2;
  • Water temperature: 24 – 27 degrees;
  • Weekly substitution, aeration and filtration.

If the water hardness in the aquarium is less than this, then it can be increased with the help of magnesia. How to increase water hardness can be gleaned from this article.

You can also use drinking salt and water – they will play the role of alkaline buffer.

For reproduction of black lamprologus, either a one-piece glass aquarium or a plastic otsadnik with dimensions of 25 × 25×30 centimeters will be suitable. As shelters for fish, you can use the shells of rapana or bivalve mollusks, ceramic pots or chiseled tuff.

As a rule, a female can spawn up to 50 eggs per spawning.

After 8 days, you will have to swim in the aquarium hungry larvae that feed on planktonic organisms. The optimum temperature of the content of the little things should be at around 26 degrees. As the young grow up, they will have to introduce microworms and a tube maker into their diet.

Before giving the shredder, it is necessary to rinse it properly, and only then feed the fish. The fact is that the red blood substance in the tube can cause the active development of ciliates, which can further destroy all fry.

The first symptoms of discomfort being tested are the refusal of food, scratching the ground, rocking from side to side, constant presence near the aeration zone, dusting of scales and dropsy of the integument. If such situations occur, water must be replaced partially or completely. After that, the aquarium should be shaded for a week and sterilized aquarium water with methylene blue or ozone.

Black lamprologists are ready for breeding at the age of 10 – 12 months. These aquarium fish perfectly coexist with any shell lampologologus and halinochromis.
