Paid for Pseudogastromyzon myersi, got Gastomyzon scitulus?

Post by pepedopolous » Wed Mar 22, 2017 12:12 pm

Hello there,

I wonder if anyone could try and check the identity of the loach in the photo. As it says in the title, I bought some Pseudogastromyzon myersi from a supplier, but looking at some photos from Seriously Fish, they appear to actually be Gastromyzon scitulus, I think...

Thanks for the confirmation. I'm on a waiting list at the same supplier for Gastromyzon puntulatus... I wonder what I'll get if I order them? ;-)

Hillstreams are often mislabeled in the trade so you never know what you are going to end up with.
