That second photo is beautifully "posed". I see in the third photo that your male has some breeding color on his tail. Thanks for the photos.

What are the plants in the background of the second pic? I see them often on the site, but never in any stores around here. I'd like to get some.

Jason: Thats anacharis, or otherwise known as Elodea. Quite common, but in most petstores it arrives in poor shape and dies soon after being put into a tank(plus, it doesn't do very well in low light situations).

If you can find a pond person who removes it from their koi pond by the bucketload, or otherwise a planted tank aquarist...then they will be able to give you healthy starter plants-and you should be able to keep them providing your conditions are good enough.

But I would reccomend java fern and java moss(perhaps anubias or cryptocrynes if you wish) over anacharis...they are much hardier.

Just like to clear up one thing up:
Egeria Densa is a plant that was separated from Elodea in 1961. The genus Elodea used to be Anacharis(Is now used as a common name I suppose).
I have understood things like this:
1.Did you get it from outside? Then you most probably have an Elodea species, this species thrives in cold water, ponds etc.
2.Did you buy it from a pet shop? Then you most likely have Egeria densa. Egeria densa tolerates warm water.

Some people dislike this plant others love it.....
Why? I think Egeria densa needs a lot of light and tolerates warm water while Elodea needs cool water but do not need as much light.



Very nice C.e.ensicauda Rickard. I Shall register them tomorrowClick the image to open in full size.

Wow, the one to the left almost have a reddish belly. Not much black on their bellies or?
What are you feeding them by the way?

I mostly feed them earthworms + red and white mosquito worms. The two in the bottom picture only have a small portion of black on their bellies.

I suspect that, in the case of C. ensicauda, genetics and the diet during "childhood" have an effect on the belly color, but the diet during adulthood has little or no effect.
