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,
Thomas

Re: ID for "weather loach"

Hi,

The skinny loach seems to be a Misgurnus, too.

The third loach is a nice patterned Lepidocephalichthys guntea

I've catched 13 out of the tank to raise them. I've fed with artemia nauplii they grow quickly and after ...

Re: Crossostoma lacustra

yes, I have kept 4 of them in a tank together with Barbatula and Cobitis. They was very friendly to the other loaches. My were lesser aggressive than other hillstreams e.g. Pseudogastromyzon

Very nice stuff, the Cobitis sp should be C. striata, which occurs in japan. http://tanzawa-sky-club.air-nifty.com/photos/uncategorized/2010/11/21/cobitis024.jpg any ideas about the right one? Looks very similar to my unknown Cobitis: http://sandkauer.de/Arten/Cobitis_sp1/Bilder/Cobitis_sp1_8.jpg ha...
