I have pics from Charles and Odyssey so will add a profile or two. Are these micropredatory like Homaloptera or biofilm grazers a la Gastromyzon? The mouth structure would appear to suggest the former? Pic by Odyssey.

grazers.
for me they are as "type" on the way from gastromyzon to continental forms of hilllies. and very filigree species.
I'll send you all pics I have
cheers Charles

what I meant: a "fragile" appereance compared with gastromyzon - and delicate too. not a dominant species in a gastromyzon tank

Ah ok thanks for the confirmation. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Would you recommend keeping them in the absence of other balitorids then?

ok would be: gastromyzon, sinogastromyzon, protomyzon, erromyzon. the others - pseudogastromyzon, sewellia, beaufortia - I wouldn't recomend.
as hypergastromyzon come in only occasionally with gastromyzon - single specimen - it would last some years to form a group. the easiest way would be together with a group of gastromyzon
