Hello Gerhard, I don't know if we read often here from you (I would be glad about that), but of course a "welcome here" to you from my side too. Schistura cf. geisleri will do this in the next days That's sounds great, I'm in good hope for my Nemacheilus ornatus pair, but the female isn't so fat as ...

Hi piggy,

thanks for your reply.

I've asked Jörg Bohlen, and he said that it could be C. biwae, but it could also be another undescribed Cobitis.

At the moment I name them Cobitis sp. or C. cf. biwae. I think Cobitis sp. is better :)

Bye,

Thomas

Hello Markus and welcome here, In the DATZ 02/07 is a pic of Yunnanilus cruciatus, in my eyes are Emmas loaches no Yunnanilus. The dorsalfin of the Y. cruciatus is more roundish, compared with Emmas fishes. If I look right, the dorsale of your loaches are "clean", Emmas have one row of little markin...

Hi Mick, I got ten of them, but at home I've found one more in the fishbag. I might buy a few more and share them into two groups in two different tanks. David, I would also say biwae is a hot hint in any case. Now we have to decide between cf. of spec. aff. :wink: Thanks for your search. I've found...

Thanks for your replies! Hi David, I dont believe that this is C. taenia, the nearly solid line over the blotches I have never seen at C. taenia pictures. At some fishes merge the blotches nearly to a thicker line. You can see what I mean here: http://greygo.net/Aqua-Bilder/lol/Cobitis_sp_3.jpg Many...

Cobitis sp.

They weren't on the bill from the wholesaler, so I've no hints what species this could be. But I think china...

Hi, The typical characteristic of the genus Lepidocephalichthys are thickened last pectoral rays of the male. This I have seen yesterday at two of my loaches (and two others haven't this - so I have at least two pairs) The fishes no. 5 and 6 don't show me their pectoral fins so I can't say what they...

Thanks for your replies.
is there any chance of finding out where they were exported from ?
I think he said that they were from Myanmar (Burma)
Can regional variations lead to different shaped fins and bodies then?
i can't imagine that it is, but who knows...

The tail does not looks like Misgurnus, it is not convex and counting the barbels is not so easy as I thought. But I'm nearly 90% sure that they have only 8 barbels and not 10 like Misgurnus. But I have to confirm this. The fishes are very shy and quickly move in the background. Here is the tail of ...

Yes Mick, they don't look like yours.

@Graeme
some fishes has definitly "Cobitis/Lepidocephalichthys" patterns and a Misgurnus with such markings are unkown for me.

But I will go and count the Barbels :) - then we know more (hopefully)

Lepidocephalichthys cf. berdmorei

Hi, Yesterday I get some Lepidocephalichthys, they were sold as L. cf. berdmorei. Would you agree that this is a L. berdmorei and no cf.? http://greygo.net/Aqua-Bilder/lol/L_cf_berdmorei1.jpg http://greygo.net/Aqua-Bilder/lol/L_cf_berdmorei2.jpg Unfortunately, two died and one is not in good conditi...

Hi Emma,

No, I don't have photos. My Homaloptera catch only swimming pieces of the food and don't sit around it and eat like yours. :)
It's hard to take a photo of this behaviour. :) I'm to slow, much to slow. :)
