Re: Sewellia marmorata fry

Thanks Jim,

Sure there is hope -- and I hope you see yours soon! -- fry is always fun, especially new species.

Re: Sewellia marmorata fry

Thanks, Charles,

Looks like 3, about 7mm, from the same spawn.

Not prolific :(

I'm trying for a good photo, no luck so far -- they do not like coming to the front :(

Good luck with the move!

Re: Leucist Sewellia Sp. Spotted fry

Incredibly interesting indeed -- this is an unusual case where attempting line breeding may work, so hope you try!

Do you have still photos to show?

Re: Has the forum considered Breeding Reports as a site func

Actually I have a solution for you guys if you are interested ... I have a domain designed for doing just this, simply do not have time, but the idea is to collect breeding info for loaches and gobies. It is becoming increasingly clear that I will not do this myself -- too many other things to do --...

Re: Clown loach eating other fish.

Predatory fish are often capable of eating a fish up to 1/2 of its size. They may not always succeed, but they will try. or their own size... or even larger :shock: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3356481/He-hungry-Watch-incredible-moment-catfish-gulps-fish-big-itself.html not clowns, obvio...

Re: Anyone have Sewellia lineolata for sale?

Trin is very good. I now got three loach groups from them, all are doing fine.

Wetspot is another online place to consider.

Re: In need of sun loaches

It may take years to find them, be prepared.

(I've been looking for crimsons for 8 years till I finally got them).

Re: Where to buy sinibotia

Ok thanks for the help mike! I'm keeping space open for sinibotia anyway, so I wouldn't order them. You can try. But I suggest try through your local store (many can get Segrest fish) and insist on a current photo (this may be difficult). The photo Segrest and the Bluegrass creeps used might be a r...

Re: Where to buy sinibotia

Hi, I'm still looking! This is listed as botia histrionica but it looks like sinibotia to me, probably robusta but maybe something else? http://bluegrassaquatics.com/loach-botia-golden-zebra-regular.html ok.... here is what is known about Bluegrass: everyone I know who tried to buy from them had pr...

Re: In need of sun loaches

While checking these two sources is the right thing to do when looking for *any fish*, I cannot recall Wetspot ever offering y.eos or it ever appearing on Aquabid.... the best chances may be to examine shipments of similar loaches (modesta et al) everywhere hoping for a contaminant. And talking to e...

Re: What loach did I get?

third wrong assumption -- that if the fish came together to your lfs it was caught together. Instead, all too often the exporters mix different catches.
