My Rilis

Recommended Posts

HexaD

Just wanted to share some rilis which I got off my mate Gbang earlier this week

I know Rilis aren't everyone's cup of tea but I have always been fascinated with how beautiful they look when they are berried!

All different type of patterns

This is one my favorite patterns, looks like a red nose/hino/rili mix

With some yellows settling in, feeding on a pellet

Honestly I don't think they have colored up yet as they have been in the breeding box for a few days

Pretty sure the coloration should be more intense once it gets onto the substrate

Can't wait!

they look realy nice HexaD

One question i have reguarding the breeding of rillis, say if i got a rilli female and bred it with a normal male without rilli genes, what persent would be rilli or would you even get any rilli's?

hope you dont mind me posting it here HexaD.

No worries, I had a similar question as I will be housing the yellows with Rilis and was wondering they would breed into yellow rilis, but from what I have read, they will breed into the wild cardinia type

Hopefully someone else has a confirmed answer here :)

      Hah! LOL, how did I know. If I was going to put a bet on one or the other, it would be the rocks from Phillip Island ... from the beach. How to test? do the vinegar test. Take out a bit of gravel, and a small stone. drop some vinegar on them to see if you get a reaction. Alternate test is to put them in a cup of water. Test the water GH and KH before adding, then test again after a few hours to see if KH and GH have increased.

      ahh shoot. gravel was washed about 20 times thru, and rocks were boiled. gravel was sold as aquarium safe gravel, but the rocks were from phillip island, along the beach... how could i just test 1 or 2 to see if that's why? (they're all the same type, but i have a few big ones that r heavy and a bunch of small ones that i can test with)

      That means you have something else in the tank that is leeching carbonates - like a rock, or gravel or shell grit.

      eek! I've been trying to reduce the hardness for a few weeks since i noticed it was high. I'm in melb, and my tap water is relatively soft, but it doesn't seem to make a difference to the hardness when i do water changes. I've been doing up to 40% weekly (on average maybe 30%) but have barely seen improvement... I'm using water that's already at about 23 degrees from tap, would it make a difference if I used just cold? (I've only measured cold tap, not heated as i didn't think it would be different). Otherwise if I could get RO from somewhere would that help? Thanks!

      Those parameters are getting too high for a killi. Killis definitely prefer soft water and slightly acidic, pH under 7.0. Irrespective of what disease it might have, it would be a good idea to start reducing pH, GH and KH slowly now. Where abouts in VIC are you? Melbourne's tap water is generally very good for softwater fish. If we can't ID the disease, start with an all purpose cure, like malachite green.
