Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors report on a case where an African cichlid (Lamprologus ocellatus) colony died due to egg retention and consequential autointoxication. The colony was fed on high quality, live feed without gradual introduction but kept in 20-22 °C water. The ovogenesis started fast due to the increased quality of feed, but egg retention occurred in the relatively cold water. The toxins absorbed from the degenerated unovulated eggs caused the death of the female fish.
