See the thread here, on Loaches.Ru.

The species seems to be G.scitulus.... naturally this is something many of us were waiting and hoping for many years. Congratulations to the breeder!

You can run the thread through Google translate, or I'll summarize it later.

Very cool! Do we have any Russian members to translate?

We do obviously but I have not seen him posting for a few months now.

Very little to translate there for now, the discovery is only a couple of days ago... ok: so far one fry seen, looks like a few months old (well, we do not know how fast they grow), 15g, high flow, low light, said to be soft water but no numbers, unheated tank, 25C recently.... and a bunch of things I cannot translate (other tankmates, plants -- I don't know their terminology).

Well, it is more than was ever found before. :P

I talked to the fishkeeper and she made some changes that will make it more likely that more will survive if they spawn again. The tankmates were some kind of tetras (which is probably not too dangerous) but also loads of cherry shrimp and that is a pretty bad factor for small fry... Hope she removed them all.
