 It's  been  over  six  months  since  the  IAH  collection  trip...  How  about  an  update  on  the  status  of  the  fish  brought  back?

 Buggars  have  grown  to  various  sizes,  the  largest  being  close  to  4"  and  smallest  being  2.5".    Open  swimmers  most  of  the  time  and  are  very  comfortable  with  native  barbs  especially  with  filamentosas/mahecolas.    They  eat  almost  anything  and  eat  like  pigs.    Frenzies  on  live  food  which  includes  Artemia,  Bloodworms  &  tubifex.    When  they're  given  the  food  they  love,  upper  &  lower  area  of  the  stripes  disappears  and  they  get  a  'row  of  central  spots'  for  a  while.    Love  to  peck  on  driftwood/stones.    Growth  rate  is  not  too  slow.    They  grew  faster  than  maculatus.    Doesn't  seem  to  be  concerned  about  forming  territories.    Not  too  aggressive  also.    My  2"  maculatus  in  that  tank  dominates  the  biggest  canarensis  and  have  never  went  after  any  fish  except  bullying  among  themselves  during  feeding  time.
 And  it  won't  be  complete  without  saying  "No  Sign  of  Breeding  at  all!!!"

 And  if  I  remember  right,  some  would  be  freaking  out  in  Ravi's  Planted  tank.

 Hi  Rahul:
 
 The  once  which  we  bought  were  juvi's  of  3/4"size...
 Eight  of  them  are  in  my  tank...(four  of  them  in  your  tank..now...  Very Happy  )
 Initially,  did  no  harm  to  plants...a  month  later  there  were  NO  plants...  Chuckle  
 They  spare  nothing  when  it  comes  to  plants,  algae  and  food...
 Eats  everything  from  Rice,  Rava,  etc.  to  HM,  Shrimps,  FBW...
 
 All  have  grown  to  2.5"  size...No  thermostat...
 I  guess,  they  still  have  a  long  way  to  grow...  Smile

 Thanks  for  the  update  Nag  Smile
 
 It's  nice  to  exchange  notes.  
 
 Mine  are  in  different  sizes.  Just  under  2"  to  just  over  3".  They  eat  almost  anything  but  show  a  definite  preference  for  the  live  stuff.  Definitely  slow  growing.  I  think  they're  slower  than  my  tangs  Sad  
 
 Anyway,  it'll  be  fun  to  see  where  we're  at  in  another  6  months  Very Happy

 From  my  experience,  in  another  six  months  the  canarensis  would  be  eating  even  more.
 I'm  going  to  start  them  on  therapy  if  they  don't  get  some  action  fast  Very Happy

 Gentlemen,  I  have  followed  your  trevails  with  E.  Canarensis  with  great  interest,  and  I  am  happy  to  report  that  my  Canarensis  successfully  spawned  this  evening  in  my  tank  in  my  home  in  USA.    
 
 Approximately  100  pinkish  eggs  were  laid  on  a  smooth  rock.....fabulous  coloration    on  the  parents  during  the  whole  ordeal!!!

 Hi  Tim,
 
 Congrats  !!!    Clapping  
 
 Like  Beta  mentioned,  I  guess  this  is  the  first  reported  captive  breeding  for  E.  Canarensis.
 
 Would  be  wonderful  if  you  have  recorded  any  water  parameters  or  any  thing  by  which  we  could  induce  breeding  for  captive  E.  Canarensis,  like  Madan  mentioned  may  be  an  article  or  so..
 
 
 Great  News...
 
   Cheer  
 
 Regards
 
 Sujoy

 Many  persons  has  tried  to  breed  these  fish  during  the  last  years.  I  have  devoted  interest  for  this  species  since  the  middle  of  the  1980s,  and  I  have  also  followed  it  with  interest  since  it  entered  the  hobby  in  the  1990.  I  have  not  heard  of  any  breeding  before.  Study  it  carefully.  Make  notes.  Report  to  the  hobby  also  if  you  fail.  Good  luck!!  Thumb Up
