NEW POLYPTERUS HYPE

Recommended Posts

YAY!!!!!!

Finally got 2 more polypterus palmas (something)

I wanted more, but that is all that was available, so excited, and they are so cute when they are small, can't wait for them to grow up.

Also got myself a couple more delhezi, opps they had such nice markings.

Nice Palmas Polli! Haven't seen those in a while. But damn, those markings on the Delhezi are great! Usually they don't have such distinct stripes.

Yea, I was only goign to get the palmas when I went there, but the markings were to good to say no. They had several more with simmilarly nice markings, is worth going in to pick the fish out specially as there were several more really nice ones there.

Now I just got to hope the markings stay stable as it grows.

Oh yeah? Might be worth taking a visit then! Delhezi is by far my favourite species that comes in.

Palmas is for me, but in saying that I now have 6 delhezi......

(Hopefully one of my new ones is a male)

I think the colour of substrate effects colour and pattern of polys

It very much can do, at the moment there grow out tank theme is black, black, with some more black on the side, but genetics also make a difference, and the fish I have bought with nicer colours to begin with have ended up with nicer colours in the end.

I was surprised to see a longfin senegal come in, I don't think they have been in before? All of mine pretty much ate on the first day of getting them, hoping to get some good growth out of them.

What price did the polli come in as?

Yea this is the first long fin send, they haven't been around internatinoally for that long though.

What are yours eating?

They were $85 each, cheaper then the other one I got from HFF years ago at $130.

it certainly does effect the colour, but I'm not sure about the markings? I know the wild caught dels often have better markings (more solid black bands, rather than the mottled look of captive bred), but what ever they are these ones are great!

Yeah it is a fairly new 'morph'. Personally I like the look of them, not too silly looking like balloon shapes.

That is a good price. Difference is that yours are Palmas Polli, the ones that came in a few years back were Palmas palmas/buttekoferi i think.

Currently they are on a sinking marine pellet food I had left over, figured it is just as good high protein food.

The old one I have am almost certain is a palmas palmas, not sure what the new ones I have got are yet, are to small to really tell what they are.
