Since I had been there they got an order of "Borneo Suckers" that were mostly G. ctenocephalus with the exception of three beautiful G. viriosus!!
They are great looking fish with the smallest and most colorful one being about 1.25" (2.5cm) and the largest two about 2" (5cm).
I will try to get some pics but I am having some camera software issue and have decided to look into getting a new camera.
So, check out the Borneo Sucker shipments in the stores, folks. You just might find some of these jewels!
Thanks to Emma for the pic!
The one I own is a very chilled out loach, not shy as such and will go about its business without much fear of anything. Since i switched to JBL Tab food which sticks to stones and glass it has even got into the habit of trying to munch on my finger nail as i place to food. This may be down to the fact it is the largest hillie in my tank so does not need to take any nonsense from the other loaches, they will bother it but it just keeps on wandering paying very little attention.Jim Powers wrote:What can you tell me about them?

I would very much like to find a few companions for mine, it really is a delight to keep. Good luck with yours (-:
I have just realized the picture you have is of my loach that I picked up from Emma's shop (-:
East of the Sun, West of the Moon.
I have heard about "new" names on lists, Emma.
after my article in Amazonas-Magazin of mai/june things are clear in the german speaking part of europe. I even transmitted it to Singapore. importers here still find it difficult to handle as long as the suppliers side doesn't move.
but it's a long way to tipperary. "my" importer e.g. had an open ear and put g. sp "punctulatus" on the new list. just in case.
others even go further and invent new species
my respects for the importers work - omobranchus zebra e.g. right now, a highlight as I have just have my catch salaria fluviatilis in a tank - but this is irritating and not professional
that means: wait and hope ...
and have a closer look at the new arrivals in Frankfurt - today e.g.
Years ago when Sucking loaches were wild caught the interesting cyprinids that used to be piggy backed too was fantastic things like Gara's , Lobocheilus's , Osteochilus's etc, etc , though we now take some of them for granted
