Re: Yasuhikotakia splendida colouration

Its certainly unusual Jim, I did see a photo of a large wild rostrata last year with a lot of red colouration and am wondering if this was a similar thing.

Neil they settled in lovely mate, not as much clicking as I expected but all 15 seem happy enough today :D

Thank you EmilyMarie :)

Yasuhikotakia splendida colouration

These two fish are part of my group of 15 Y. splendida, I had noticed a small bit of colouration on one of my group a while ago but nothing to this extent: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/MadDuff/Loaches/Y%20splendida/Splendida%20male/DSC_7952.jpg http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/MadDuff/Lo...

Re: My First Fish Show!

Nice tanks :D

My old club used to do something similar at a local agricultural show and the local library, these events were usually a month or so before our open show which gave us quite a bit of publicity and brought a few new people to the hobby.

Re: Emperor Botia

Its a fair point Mike, a lot more work needs doing for sure. I have photos of fish that I have bought as rostrata that have turned in to kubotai add to that the fact that very few people think that sidthimunki and nigrolineata shouldnt have been added to Yasuhikotakia, you are only stating what a he...

Re: Yasuhikotakia splendida spawned

Yeah it was the eyes that I first spotted Jim, I just assumed it was a mysis shrimp until I looked closer, I hope that were there is one there will be more, the way the adults go at food it would be months before anything felt safe enough to come out into open water :)

Yasuhikotakia splendida spawned

Re: A very good loach day
