Pangio spp

Post by atmichaels » Fri Jan 06, 2017 5:57 pm

Just got these in. I'm thinking (hoping) cuneovirgata and oblonga. What do you think?

I can't identify them for you, sorry, but they are really nice. Especially the ones in the first photo. Where did you get them? I would love to have some too!!

Looks like cuneovirgata to me, so cute, good find! Oblonga? maybe, not as pointy noses as angullaris but more reddish than I remember having, but what's not to love?

Thanks guys! I got these off aquabid so I've no idea where they came from. Hopefully I can get them to spawn once they mature!

I agree cuneovirgata and oblonga.

@atmichaels- I'm curious who the seller was, I would love to get some cuneovirgata, they are hard to find.

Seller was Pete Mang aka Lotsoffish. These are his pics. Good luck!

Pete has these in another aquabid auction right now. They're in a small fish mixed lot.
