Re: Tanichthys thacbaensis-new white cloud species

One of our suppliers started listing a new wild-caught minnow last week, but he just called it Lemon White Cloud Mountain Minnow ( Tanichthys sp. 'lemon'). The pic he sent was a bit blurry and just looked like a washed out regular white cloud. No idea if these are the new species you mention or not?...

Re: Sinibotia reevesae

Thank you. :D These S. reevesae are a rare import. The supplier did not acquire very many of these so we were very lucky! 8) Here's a few pics of them settled in at home: In the tunnel with L. taeniops : http://i921.photobucket.com/albums/ad52/CanaryLoach/Fish/DSC_0671R.jpg Again with L. taeniops : ...

Re: Clown Loach feeding problems.

Hi FFFERN, Could you post a photo of your tank so that we can see what the environment is like for your clown loaches? It may be that they do not feel secure enough to venture out very often, so it would be helpful to know what your decor is like. What size are your tiger barbs? If they are fully gr...

Re: Leptobotia elongata in the UK!

Hi Andyroo, Leptobotia elongata is a species of special concern, because the larger specimens (over 25cm+/10") have become scarce, due mainly to overfishing (for food). The large adults have declined some estimated 80% in the last decade because of this. The fishermen who trawl their native habitats...
