Superb photos. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> I wonder if the striped form of D. kyathit is D. quagga?

Cake or death?

thanks to you all
I have seen a disussion about that possibility in a magazine, Matt. the picture of the holotype doesn't exclude it. but that's a pic without colours ...

Not seen the magazine but do have the D. quagga paper and you've described the problem exactly Charles. /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

The spotted fish looks like D. kyathit as per the description though. Is it being sold as 'sp.'?

Re-reading the D. quagga paper the following stands out:

'The only definite difference in colour pattern between D. kyathit and D. quagga is that the former is spotted and the latter striped. The only obvious other external difference that we have discovered is in the caudad extension of the barbels.'

So the only differences are spotted vs. striped body patterning and relatively short (rostral barbel reaching to eye) vs. relatively long (rostral barbel reaching to opercle) barbels.

Is there any chance you can document barbel length on the two forms Charles? Particularly the rostral barbel. Although the species aren't known to occur together I'm guessing they could easily be mixed at the exporters (or maybe they do occur together) and it might be significant that the only striped specimen in the type series of D. kyathit was not collected at the same time as the others but 71 years earlier!

my mistake: as danio kyathit var. spotted. the striped ones came with.
and danio (quagga) kyathit for the striped ones I presume.
so danio sp aff kyathit var. spotted would be correct?
anyway: a group of 50 specimen in a 500 lt tank looks good

What are the odds that actual quagga are collected with the area being not very friendly (I've read that somewhere, maybe in the paper)? And then sold as the cheaper kyathit? Interesting to see what the showed here will turn out to be. Nice discussion!

From what Tin Win has told me many natural areas in Myanmar are dangerous for foreigners but not locals which I guess includes the fish collectors?

Yeah that makes sense, alright. They must have found another habitat then, I think, because the type locality didn't seem rich in quagga - 1 specimen was collected with 4 additional species from a market collected from an unknown location I believe?

What interests me is that they identified all other fishes occuring with quagga, but not a 2nd Danio species; they only list it as "... another small, abundant species of Danio, ...".

they always look like this, Matt. great eaters.
got about 30 microsynodontis and hope for fry. /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" />
6 badis, Andy, bred by Pascal Sewer.. seems it's only one female in there. round here it's not a bestseller. it's a pity.
I'm still fond of badis badis which I've bred 1982-84
