Hi,

Get them from privat, a fish friend who works at a german wholesaler has found two of them in a shipment of yunnanilus cruciatus from vietnam and was so kindly to reserve and bring me the two loaches.

They seem to be nearly fully grown (~4cm), but this is a very small species.

 

Cheers,

Thomas

Yes, in the bag (nearly without any colors) I thought it is Lepidocephalichthys hasselti, but next morning the markings doesn't fit anymore, and after a bit brooding I remember a pic of Jörg Freyhof which shows Cobitis misgurnoides. The article is 14 years old, therefor the name Cobitis instead of Microcobitis.
