at first i would like to show you my absolute favorites loaches
Lepidocephalichthys guntea, i've this species since summer 2006.
Lepidocephalus thermalis: 12 euro for the fishes, 160 euro for the travel to them last year
Two unknown (undescribed?) Lepidocephalichthys. They unfortunately no longer live. i have only one of this species of them. They are (were) from 2004. I've killed them with new pangio and ignore the quarantine. i'm sure, I never do this mistake a second time
maybe they are identical with the hog face loaches, certain resemblances exist, i think.http://forums.loaches.com/viewtopic.php?t=6587
I hope you like the pics, some more will follow.
Welcome to the forum!
Those are really excellent pics. I'm a big fan of the Lepidocephalichthys/Lepidocephalus species myself. They are peaceful but always quite 'up front' and like to see what's going on outside their tanks. Sadly I have no room for them at home, but enjoy watching them at my other half's aquatics shop (I order all the fish, so there are plenty of loaches! ).
East of the Sun, West of the Moon.
i also love cobitis and sabanejewia but have no one of them. Maybe Cobitis taenia this spring from a pondfishbreeder(?) I hope the best.
I know, sometimes i sit here in germany, watch the lol-froum and die...I order all the fish, so there are plenty of loaches!
yes, but they bury it permanently
Unfortunately, they weren't in good shape and passed quickly. Sigh!
Superb pictures! I also keep a number of Lepidocephalichthys/Lepidocephalus species. I think my collection is around 6 different species including a lovely Lepidocephalichthys guntea which is a leucistic form. I'll attach the link to the picture below. I purchased this rare chap from Emma a couple of years ago.

6 different species? thats Fantastic!
But your leucistic friend...I think he looks a little bit ill... strange
No, i know of the picture, i was very often in the "Species-index" . But not registered in the Forum.
it's very nice and interesting to be here, in german forums are loaches like Schistura or Lepidocephalichthys mostly unknown.
