Thanks! What I should say is that these clips aren't all taken in one day, but still this is the way he prefers to eat. He'll make a stash of around 4 tabs before they go down the hole. It's weird really, because you normally won't see him during the day.starsplitter7 wrote:That is absolutely one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I have never had any fish, much less a loach, do that. Mine steal one piece and go off to eat it, but I have never seen one go back for more. Amazing! Beautiful tank and nice fish. I loved seeing him steal the food from under the catfish.
It varies, but it seems like he'll stash it most of the times, or he finishes the food extremely fast. I'd say it's 60/40.Adrian Thomas wrote:Very cool Jonas, does he take the food to the hole one piece at a time, or does he stash several bits of food and go back to eat it all later?
I uploaded 2 videos of my young Sewellia. The spawning took place 21. October, the video of the fry in the breeding container was taken 18. November:
The young in the tank with the old ones are already older, here is one grazing on the leafs:

I am surprised only because the spawning looks very different from Sewellia lineolata?
time for an update
I think the author didn't realise that it's a spawning situation?
s. lineolata, your s. elongat=s. sp, s. speciosa and even sinogastromyzon pulienis do it the same way. or do you have seen other behaviours?
i could only take pics once when s. lineolata showed a different spawning behaviour: doing it for about 5 minutes on a side-glass of the tank. they never repeated it as far I can judge. a pity because the situation wasn't very good for taking pics. hope to present them this year in a german magazine.
Thanks for the video, which is exactly the same behavior that my S. lineolata showed in the breeding tank.
They always spawn in open water and never near the substrate.
Meanwhile, I was able to observe the same behavior in my 500 liter tank which also showed Ingo`s S. elongata.
They spawn continuously into a pad Riccia fluitans I have tied to a stone.
martin said they look like botia rostrata. and now after looking at the pictures i think that one has the closest resemblance to these little guys.
Hi Charles,hi Henri
did I see that correctly: you have a pair? verrry nice ...
Did you mean the ones in the video?
I'm not sure about it.
When I have more time I'll try to shoot some pics of all six Hypergastromyzon.
