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 (Cottus).

The second is from june, 9th. The young loaches looks like complete but small Cobitis.

Two pics from today, the chaps are about 20-22mm. They are very active and thus difficult to measure...
