I admit: Dianema is new to me as Scleromystax is. they have been on my list of course. specially Scleromystax barbatus, a fantastic species. in my new place there is no problem with temperature, all is possible.
last week I took the chance and got some catfish-species. here some first pics

Dianema sp "Red Ituxi"
the discussion is started wether it is "cf. urostriatum" (or d. verissimi???) In my eyes not d. urostriatum.

I seen these Dianema being advertised via Glaser a week or two ago, looked very nice - good find!

http://www.aquariumglaser.de/e.....ews_id=371

The ones in Glaser pics do not seem to have any markings across the middle of their flanks?

I have tried to breed Dianema longibarbis a few times over the years with no luck and in fact I think my oldest fish in my collection is probably one of these catfish. I got them in 2002, I remember because it was a newly set up tank in my flat and it came from someone else - it was pretty much fully grown then too. Could be 10 or 11 years +?

cheers

thanks Colin. in fact they are of the Glaser-import a month ago.
Brownish to redish specimen are known of d. longibarbis. the present species is as Frank Schäfer says in between the two valid species.
what would be of great interest are infos by keepers about water parameters etc. Sucessful breeding is reported for d. urostriatum

but at the moment I'm looking for the direct sources like

I've never seen a report of a successful Dianema breeding event so if you find anything please do share Charles. Love those red ones whatever they turn out to be!

Cake or death?
