Sinogastromyzon puliensis and Sinogastromyzon wui

Post by odyssey » Sun Jan 18, 2009 10:16 am

Hi Graeme and folks.

I was ready to finally do the post of pictures of Sinogastromyzon puliensis according to the notice.
They came over in my tank in April, 2008. Three of them inhabit my water tank now.
They are glazing algae, but covet a bloodworm in greed.

I surely think that their climbing ability is fastest in Hillstreamloaches.

Two Sinogastromyzon wui inhabits my tank now from July, 2006, too.
S.wui resembles S.pliensis.
They are glazing algae, but covet a bloodworm in greed,too.
They seem to tend to stick to bigger surface than S.puliensis.
Therefore they are not readily separated from the glass surface.

The black individual and yellow individual still live.

S.wui resembles S.pliensis. Both are different in a color pattern.
Furthermore, size of the mouth, some outlines of the body are different, too.
Thus I can distinguish both even from the backside.

The back side is S.puliensis, this side is S.wui.

The left is S.puliensis,  and the right is S.wui.

The top is S.wui, and a bottom is S.puliensis.

Wow, those are beautiful!!

I am always amazed at how people can get such clear pictures of such small fish. Excellent work! There are going to be a lot of people here who will love to see those photos.

Wonderful pictures!!
It's interesting to see that you have a Sinogastromyzon wui that takes food out of the end of a tube. I have one that eats bloodworms out of a tube also.
