All very cool, but the L. guiliensis is my favourite.

Ive just got back from Neils, those elongata are stunning fish but I decided not to take any of them as they would cock up my plans for my tanks /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />

I did get however:

6x Leptobotia taeniops
6x Leptobotia guilinensis
6x Traccaticthys pulcher
2x Sinibotia robusta
8x Sinibotia pulchra
9x Rasbora Sarawakensis

and last but not least two stunning male splendida that have developed a lovely pink/red colouration around their faces and flanks /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" /> /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" />

Photos coming soon /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />

Congratulations!

Where are these coming from, do you know?
(In the US, only Leptobotia available now is Elongata, with obvious size problems.... I would not mind taeniops if it can be found here....)

My LFS got some peppermint/rainbow loaches yesterday. Traccaticthys pulcher was the latin name. I see what appear to be the same fish being referred to as micronemacheilus pulcher. Same fish? Wich is valid? Both??

They're really nice! Wish I had a place.

For me Traccatichthys is valid but not all would agree it seems?

Mark, you must have a massive group of Sinibotia now! Looking forward to the pics!

All these fish are coming through Patrick Yap of Aquaculture Technologies PTE Ltd, in Singapore, I am sure someone around you will have contact with Patrick
