    The pair BF Heckel X S Red turquoise with the flat cone, to avoid the male sliding to circumference and not fertilizing the eggs, hope they take it.

    I am really liking that Red Culpeuas wild. I don’t have any but I would like to learn how to keep them once I master the domestics. I’ve never seen a flat cone. Hope they get the hang of it.

    Barb , makes flats ("cones" or should I said spawning plate/slate) as per request and I had seen in some videos, from europe in a pair of heckels precisely , that was actually hanging in the side of the tank, mine is actually from my angels, the problem is my male Heckel tends to go to the side following the circumference shape of the drift wood, and mixes more than he pencils.
    Real Cuipeaus tend to be pricey, I used to pay for them in two installments a deposit and then final payment as they were from Wsabby . for the wilds focus in the water hardness more than in ph. I aim for a TDS of 70 to 100. with my middle point around 75ppm. There is a little bit more in to it. as I had find out that GH and KH my differ from the traditional way to estimate hardness by TDS divide by 10 after all TDS is an approximate value as your hardness is not Calcium only, the other main element is magnesium. and TDS well that could be a lot other stuff besides these other two.
    Pat's has some nice sticker in her homestead section about parameters for wilds .
