Is this a H. tweediei?

Hi,

further to this thread: http://forums.loaches.com/viewtopic.php?t=19874 I would have your opinion to this Homaloptera. Is this a tweediei?

Hello Thomas,

I'm agree with Mick, this should be a smithi or tweediei. So or so nice loaches, I've also some of them. Eventually a mix of both species, but more smithi.

sounds a bit like I'm speaking to myself ;) :lol:

Hello aurora, the small red markings on the tail reminds me of S. poculi. Other ideas were S. mahnerti and S. vinciguerrae, but both have more red in the tail fin. It is not easy, I have loaches bought as Schistura subfusca (also very similar to yours) but this is a synonym to Nemacheilus subfusca. ...

Here is your male Charles. Good to see the thickened last pectoral fin ray. The more brownish colored loach is the female.

Thanks chupo, I wish I could keep a european Cobitis or Sabanejewia someday. I have "only" few kinds of Asian Cobitis. Ok, I'm very lucky with them, but european loaches would be even a bit better. :) I should try to get some C. taenia next spring. I know about at least one breeder of this loach in ...

You are right Mark. fishbase only calls only three different species of cobitis in croatia, but in the "Handbook of European Freshwater Fishes" are some more. Such as your C. bilineata and I could imagin that this is a good hint. I don't think that this is C. elongatoides , but you are right again, ...

Hi, sadly I've no idea what cobitis this is, but I've looked at fishbase.org and there are three Cobitis in croatia: Cobitis illyrica , C. jadovaensis and C. taenia. I don't think it's the taenia . But I never heard or read about the other two Cobitis, so I only can say " very nice loach!! " Maybe w...

Hi,
I was wondering if there are any major differences between Cobitis and Lepidocephalichthys species that can be used for ID.
the male of cobitis have the second ray of the pectoral fin thickened, at Lepidocephalichthys it is the last ray.
