Homaloptera UK

Post by Adrian Thomas » Mon Nov 15, 2010 4:13 am

Anyone know of any sources of Homaloptera (any species) in the UK at the moment?
I've managed to get sucker-bodied hillstreams (Sewelia lineata, and some beautiful little loaches that were claimed to be Beaufortia kweichowensis but I suspect are something else), and they are doing very nicely in my gyre-tank, but I can't find any of the Homaloptera or other more 'conventional' shaped loaches from fast-flowing streams.

Cheers,
Adrian

Pier aquatics have some I think, I found out while looking for Rhinogobies.

Hi Adrian,

I have seen what i believe were Homaloptera in a few local branches of Maidenhead Aquatics (Guildford and Woking). I can't confirm the ID but i think they might of had a mix of H. smithi and H. tweediei.

Hope that helps,
LES..
