Winter quarters

Last week, there have been two nights where air temperatures have dropped below zero. Most fish were moved to their winter quarters just before that. They will stay in a frost-free greenhouse until April.
Alltogether, there are some forty basins with fish in the greenhouse. In there, A. elongatus, prognathus, cheradophilus, viarius, charrua, bellotti, nigripinnis, vazferreirai, arachan, gymnoventris. The tanks are filled with tap water and contain a tiny amount of peat, some dead leaves and a starter of tubifex. Food will be supplied on a weekly basis and adults get a spawning container. They will continue to spawn through winter, on an irregular basis and depending on temperature variation.
