Never seen that one before Mike. Is it definitely a Sewellia?

No info, but it does look like a Sewellia to me too.

I probably should get them and see.... really squeezed for space now with all the fry around. :(

Hi Matt

Haven't seen the new list. They are late this week. May be tomorrow. I think no because infos in this case should have come already. Should have a look at the offers from Asiai, too.

Have you seen the head-pattern, Olly? Don't think Beaufortia sp.

Cheers Charles

This is for laugh only... an entry from the availability list I just saw:

Tiger Stiphidon Loach Stiphidon spp. $9
(listed among Loaches).

Any guesses ?

Almost certainly not a loach nor a Stiphodon.

Looks more like a Misgurnus species?

So strong markings on Misgurnus?

(I'm actually a bit tempted by these, thus asking)

From the vendor: "The scientific name is the same as Misgurnus angullicaudatus , they are the new breed from china ." Somehow doubtful...

No, I don't understand what this thing is anymore... it does look a lot like a classical Beaufortia, the same gray color (empty qtank, fish just came in) however.....

Beaufortia is supposed to have black dots on white, this looks like reverse?
