So i pick up some.
But i´m not sure if S. elongata is right, the body shape and markings are diffrent as the other S. elongata shown on this side??
I think it could be two species?
Here some pics:
looks like S. elongata
interesting markings in sp 01.
it won't be easy to find an answer.
the second species could be s. breviventralis.
in case they have yellow bordered pectorals and ventrals they would correspond with the species from Laos, presented by K. Udomrittthiuji in AMAZONAS Mai/June as s. elongata.
Roberts didn't make a remark about this fact.
for me your species looks like s breviventralis in the revision of J. Freyhof. but who knows?
pictures - underside etc - could be useful to get closer.
there are 5 s. spp on the market. your first species makes it six. it's time for a revision.
My new Sewellia sp. doing very well, they are absolutely not shy and always in front of the tank like the lineolatas.
They are extreme good surfers, the head shape is slightly more pointed so I think they come from faster flowing habitats.
They are not as territorial as other Sewellia types and like to sit in a small group together.
I hope that they breed is so easy to make as the lineolatas, they are unstoppable!
Lately they show much more colour.
