Re: Cobitis sp.

I've forgotten two short videos. The first is from may, 28th (four days after I've find the fry). The larvas have a fin seam as you can see in the first pics. The larvas have a fin seam as you can see in the first pics. The pectoral fins are vertical. This makes the larvas looks a bit like bullhead ...

Re: Cobitis sp.

Hi, I dig out this thread for some news: The Cobitis seems to be an undescribed species from taiwan and they habe spawned a few weeks ago in my tank. On May, 24th I've spotted some 5-6mm larvas. 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...

Hi Tanja, from the top it looks like more a Lepidocephalichthys or Kottelatlimia than a horceface to me. The caudale looks a bit forked, isn't it? If it so, we could limit the possibilities. Only a few loaches of this genera (L. and K.) have forked tailfins. I think Kottelatlimia has never forked ta...

Yes, but the right genus is "Misgurnus" and not "Misgurnis" as in the link. I would say it is a nice spotted male of M. anguillicaudatus.
