Garra ID please; G. congoensis, ornata or ??

Postby killi69 » Sun Apr 06, 2014 8:21 pm

I ordered some Garras for my Cameroon tank from a Congo shipment labled as 'Garra lancrenonensis'.

When they arrived, it was obvious they were far too big to be lancrenonensis, which according to Fishbase grow only to about an inch http://fishbase.sinica.edu.tw/Summary/SpeciesSummary.php?ID=12696&genusname=Garra&speciesname=lancrenonensis

They look like G. congoensis but I was hoping they might be G. ornata as G. ornata occurs in Cameroon also. The only picture I could find of G. ornata was on http://fishbase.sinica.edu.tw/Summary/SpeciesSummary.php?ID=11523&genusname=Garra&speciesname=ornata;

Below are some pics of the fish I bought. Any help on ID would be much appreciated. Regards,

Andre
