Hi all

I just got these pics, which show Gastromyzon lepidogaster from Sabah. Dietzenbach had some lately, but this orange coloration is new to me and you will certainly enjoy.

Thanks to Renato for the pics

Cheers Charles

Good grief that's amazing Charles! Do you know if all the fish there were coloured like that?

would be nice, Thomas. But the place they were photographed is in a reserve. No imported specimen to be expected..

yes, all of the same colouring, Matt. About half a dozen specimen near a water fall at 700 m.

yes, amazing Jim. Even the expert on Borneo-suckers was impressed by the beautiful colours.

Cheers Charles

It would be nice to have them but I'm even happier that they're being protected!

Hi all

Gunther Witt took some pics and videos on his trip to Borneo in december 2010. One species could meanwhile be identified as G. lepidogaster. A second species is still under consideration. A problem is the absence of knowledge of the juvenile pattern in almost all Neogastromyzon/Protomyzon. A good guess may be Neogastromyzon crassiobex. For the expert a Protomyzon can't be excluded.

Gunther was there for spiders and just took the chance to net some fish. He has uploaded one video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....&hd=1

and with his consent I can show some pics here. The localitiy was Danum Valley, field Center, Tembaling waterfall. The last specimen shows some fant orange.

Cheers Charles

Just adding a profile for G. lepidogaster and came across this thread again. Guess I was busy with wedding preparations when you posted this last set of pics Charles.

If the photos were taken in the Danum Valley then the spotted fish should be N. crassiobex, but guess you've established that by now. Anyway, wonderful pics and video! Laugh

Hi Matt

N. crassiobex is on top of the list. As patterns of juvenile specimen are not well known, we tend to be not decisive. But I think, i'ts a good guess.

G. lepidogaster has been bred by Heinrich Gewinner more than half a year ago. It has now been presented in AMAZONAS. I'm quite shure now to know the clue for breeding now and this year could become a "Gastromyzon-year". What I need is more tanks and more time. Both are short. What a surprise Surprised

Cheers Charles

Yes Matt,

German Amazon magazine Nr. 45 Jan/Feb 2013 pp.42 - 45.

Quite fascinating indeed as he didn't just have a few fry but from mid March to mid April 2012 produced more than 600 of them!

Since he doesn't say anything about water parameters at all, not even temperature, maybe the "secret" is the relatively small size of the tank??? Smile

I was just amazed at the result of 600 fry in less than 4 weeks.

Hi

I missed them too. But I'll tell you more as soon I have the proof that I'm right. And the secrets would be spread here Wink

The number of 600 is not surprising for me. First it's a large species, second I read somewhere in "Borneo-suckers" the number of 1400 follicles in a not fully grown specimen. Seems to be no difference with Sewellia. With the technique to vacuuming off during waterchange you can get hundreds of eggs in no time. As far as I know all breeders were unable to cope and stopped it. I stopped the intensive breeding by adding shrimps.

Cheers Charles

Hi Charles,

I might have understood the article wrong but wasn't that the first documented breeding of G. lepidogaster? 

Or were you referring to breeding Sewellia spp. in your last sentence?

Regards

R.

I think there are no secrets - have at least one male, one female, no snails, no shrimps and clear water. And a possibility to collect eggs or fry.
