I just checked your River-Tank video again oilhands and there is an increase in quality when you choose that option.

Yes, you are correct, sir. I guess I wasn't clear. I meant the difference between my version of the video on my machine (unprocessed by youtube) and the version when I click on "Higher Quality" after it has been uploaded to youtube.

Hi Oil,
Is your original video markedly better than this "Higher Quality"
Yes, I have proofed both videos in fullscreen, and the .avi-file on my harddisk is better (I'm not sure if I would say markedly) but of course also very big.

Thanks for checking. So, we now know that the videos we have been posting have three 'quality' settings: raw/unprocessed; youtube high quality; and youtube low quality. Interesting.

Hi,

I have made two short videos of the new Crossostoma. The first one shows mainly one of the smaller loaches eating brine shrimp.

In the second the two bigger Crossos sitting under a piece of wood. Ok, not very spectacular. But in the End the guy in the back comes a bit out there...8) :wink:

Thanks Andy, no I have "only" the anguillicaudatus. In germany it is possible to get the fossilis, but I don't want to mix the two species and I haven't the place for another tank. But I hope to keep the fossilis in the wider future. They are on the plan :)

Thomas the videos are excellent for internet quality and your macro lens works very well.

Thanks for the informative and entertaining videos. I love the smithi feeding vid! He hunts like lizard - very entertaining, and a fish I wish I could accommodate. Unfortunately any of the colder water species are a can't do for me. But I love to see them!

In a garden center with pondfishes I have seen a label "Misgurnus fossilis" but in the tank were only one (nearly dead) Misgurnus. In this bad condition I couldn't say if it really a fossilis, I couldn't see the typical stripes. And it's more than ten years ago. But it is possible to buy them at pondfish breeder.
