James my oh was lucky enough to pick up a breeding group of RGS at PRAS to add to his single girl. I saw them yesterday for the first time in their setup so grabbed some pics.
Ye James lost a few before getting some good advice from WLW. The wild caught ones it seems nearly always die due to stress, parasites and that food in captivity doesnt have the right bacteria for their tums.Beautiful! I love these little greenies - just wish I'd have had better info when I had my trio, and I might have managed to keep them alive.
Good luck with the breeding : victory:.
Ye again its the wild caught seem doomed to death. Hopefully keepers in the uk can crack breeding them and stop the needless deaths of wild caught (in my opinion). These have bred this year and James has 2 of the cutest babies so tiny and mini's of the adults.Wow! I love these, everytime I see some I get very envious :flrt:
From what I have read they are very difficult to keep, is this because their needs are just that hard to mimic or is it just very little known about their needs that keepers are just guessing?
that sucks...but sounds about right, i had one die within an hour of checking it, and it appearing fine. that was my first to die a few years backi love these, so beautiful. i was going to get 1 from shirley aquatics but wen i went to pick her up they went to get her out the tank and she was dead, they'd only seen her alive that morning and i was gutted
lol you may need to remind me in a year or so, fingers crossed, eh?Put me down on the waiting list for babies!! Always looking to add more to the ones I already have. Good luck!!
