Re: Pangio Anguillaris size

Yes, they get plumper but it last somes years... and not like an old P. myersi.

This female is round about 15 years old, it measures 11 cm and in the middle the body is 8 mm high.

European weather loach Misgurnus fossilis

Hi, a few weeks ago I've purchased 5 M. fossilis from a pond fish breeder here in Germany.

Re: red spoted loach and kuhlies

A common name for it in german is "orange spot loach / Orangefleck Bachschmerle" But this loach didn't has a real orange spot, sometimes you can see a bit like that in the dorsal fin... Or the "crimson loach" (also a schistura species) o...

Re: Cobitis loaches

I would recommend to keep them in a group of at least 6-8 individuals. The more the better. The males are often behind the females and try to swim direct next to the female (pairswimming). But they aren't so social as clown loaches. The temp is round about 20°C sometimes a few degrees lesser or more...

Re: Cobitis loaches

Yes, you are right...not so much info... And yes, I still keeping them. The oldest offspring are 7 years old, but I have also a (WC) group (more than 10) for 11 years now. I keep them in an unheated tank with Rocks, gravel and sand. A lot of Java fern. This was the tank when they spawned the first t...

Re: Can you help me ID my loach?

Hi,

For me it looks more like a doriae than an anguillaris. It is to less mottled for an anguillaris. And it has the doriae typical dark snout.

Cheers,

Re: Weather Loach social requirements

You can mix it. Both are the same species, the golden are only a color variant of M. anguillicaudatus (Weather loach).

I would suggest you to take some more as only three.

Re: Can you help me ID my dojo loaches please

Hi,

First pic: on the left seems to be a skinny Misgurnus anguillicaudatus, right looks like a Paramisgurnus dabryanus. Both occurs together and comes often in mixed shipments in trade.

Cheers,
Thomas
