I don't know if the "forum" has considered the idea. It seems just to roll on and on. The guys who made that work are far away and won't start such a list for shure. Similar lists exist in specialised communities, but not for loaches, not even in Germany. Some specialists make part of BSSW
(surver-problem right now?)
On top: Gerhard Ott and on this forum
As you can see on www.seriouslyfish.com we try to keep the profiles on current status, which is a lot of work already.
Regarding S. kronei: some breeders here (Switzerland) have bred them. Easier than S. barbatus I heard.

A word to lists: they may help when it comes to exchange of specimen of rare species or eggs. After some 50 years in the hobby I still prefer personal contact, which is not very difficult nowadays. One reason is: I can ask questions
The fact is, that most sites are a bit "starving". I'm not so sad about it, as for about ten years there has been a lot of "flow" in the hobby and hobbyist could benefit. At least German speaking hobbyist did great work, breeding Annamia normani, Yaoshania pachychilus, Liniparhomaloptera disparis, Erromyzon sp "red spot", Gastromyzon lepidogaster, Chromobotia macranthus and Sewellias. All documented in periodicals. Not to forget the successes in breeeding gobies. All without stock-lists.
On the other hand it is evident, that those lists help to preserve species - in the hobby. Catfish, Killis, Labyrinthfish.
But that's more or less the work of "freaks"
It is becoming increasingly clear that I will not do this myself -- too many other things to do -- but either of you is welcome to take over.
If interested, let's talk in PM.
I'll show what this is.
