Picked up some new loaches for the hillstreamtank, but I'm not sure about their ID.
Would this be some kind of Sinogastromyzon sp.?

S. puliensis, I think, but wait for confirmation. Nice Henri!

I'm really jealous Henri! You get far better hillstreams than I have access to. Very nice!

Yes, I guess I'm lucky with a shop like that only a few minutes away.
I've taken some smaller specimen (about 4 cm); there were big ones at least twice that length in the same batch. (all labelled as B. leveretti)

sinogastromyzon pulienis.
a very fine species. needs a lot of oxygen and loves strong food - red mosquito larvae e.g.
had a video of taiwan fishes with the species. I'll try to find

Fantastic film that ! I was lucky enough to come across a couple of those Acrossocheilus Paradoxus a few years ago , well I think thats what they were , because there are a few Acrossocheilus's that are in the complex , and they look quite similar , I'd love to keep a nice group of them together ! /wub.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wub:" border="0" alt="wub.gif" />

The 'movie' was wonderful! /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" /> It's actually given me ambitions of making something similar about Spanish fishes. The Opsariichthys, the Formosania, the breeding sequences....aaaaaaa!!!

Andy do you still have the Acrossocheilus? Anyone else you know in the UK keeping them? There can't be many folk maintaining these beauties.

Sadly not ! and I'm by no means certain that they were actually Paradoxus ,as there are a few very similar looking fish in this group .
