Re: Spotted sand loach ??????

Yes, it is a Cobitis. Maybe it is the undescribed Taiwanese species that is sometimes in trade last few years.

Re: looking for info on barbatula barbatula

In german books about cold water fishes you can read that breeding of barbatula in aquariums is possible. Of course they need an overwintering. There are also pictures of spawning Barbatula. If you want to breed them, you need a group with both gender. I bet there aren't an exact sex ratio which cer...

Re: Can gold and pangio kuhli interbreed ?

Hi Karen,

You can take a look at the caudal fin, at Misgurnus it is outside rounded. You can see what I mean on this pic.

Pangio have always a bit concave caudal fins, at least (as I know) never convex.

Re: Can gold and pangio kuhli interbreed ?

sometimes the golden form of Misgurnus anguillicaudatus called "golden kuhli loach". If so, they don't interbreed.
Are you sure your "golden Pangio" are really member of the genus Pangio? A pic would be nice :)

Thomas

Re: Tank bred weather loach

You can try to feed them with artemia nauplii. I've raised some Cobitis fry last year with it.

Re: Loaches from China

Hi,

Chinensis is neither a valid species nor a synonym in the genus Cobitis. The main thing is they are very nice!

The second one has two dorsal fins, so it isn't a loach. It's a goby, but I've no idea about the genus.

Cheers,

Re: ID for "weather loach"

Hi,

The skinny loach seems to be a Misgurnus, too.

The third loach is a nice patterned Lepidocephalichthys guntea
