Breeding Cryptoheros Cutteri Rio Jutiapa

A few pictures caught in the act. This strain seems to have a little wider banding, shorter body and a little more colorful when not in breeding dress.

Very nice fish. I could not pick one over the other.

Keep the great pics coming. You have a super collection of smallish cichlids (and largish ones too!).

Do you ever see any size differences between various races?

Thumbs up

These guys go through amazing color changes based on mood and whether they're breeding, guarding fry, etc.

Here are some (of course) horrible pics of some F1 Rio Jutiapa cutteri I got from Ken Davis (and their kids)...

The first couple shots are when they're not in breeding coloration - great golds and blues.

The rest are when they're breeding - pronounced bars and the female goes psycho.

I unfortunately lost these guys in the aftermath of the fire. Male was pushing 6"... I think he won 1st in his class at the Catfish Convention a couple years ago ... and probably fathered (or grandfathered) most of the cutteri Jutiapa in the DC tri-state area...

There's another cutteri variant from Rio Monga that's around the hobby. I think it's more blue but I've never kept them.

Nice Matt. I don't think I'll ever get my male that big. He is always fertilizing one of the females egg batches, tough life... This strain is from Ken as well.

Pictures below of Rio Mongo variety Cutteri. A little taller bodied, thinner banding and more pointed head area.

Great shots fellas! Thanks!

To answer your question Chris, all the Spilurum types seem to max out close to the same size. HRP and Nanoluteus stay smaller.

Yes - it's hyacinth.

I only use ambient (overhead) lighting in the fishroom (no lights on tanks...other than strings of LEDs). The tank that was right (probably 6-8") under 2x40W lights from a strip light was the cutteri tank. The hyacinth usually stayed good for a couple months. I buddy gives me her extras from her pond...

Great pics of the Rio Mongo variant!

I used to also have a Rio Blanco variant of spillurum (from Ken) and the Rio Sarstoon / chetamulensis (from JD through you, I think, Jim).

I've got a nano male who's pushing 5"...about 3.5 years old...and father of many of the nanos in my area. I'm hoping he survives to return to my fishroom and father some more babies...

Viva los Cryptoheros!

Matt

How did the Chetumalensis turn out? The Dad of those is my largest Crypto at 6+".
I'm pretty sure he's done growing.
