I got six of these a few months back and spotted a couple more lurking in the back of a tank in the same shop a couple of weeks ago, I think they are Schistura kohchangensis but not 100%. The colour difference between the two fish is quite striking and the red coloured fish has lost that intensity but still has a feint red shade to it so I am hoping this maybe a sexual difference?

Whatever they are they're a lovely Schistura Mark. I'll root out my Kottelat book in the morning (sure you've already done the same).

Cake or death?

They are a nice fish Matt and peaceful as well, they don't particularly like each other company all that much, they will tolerate each other for a while and then one will just move or chase the other but they don't go out of their way to chase each other. They are first to the surface to bite any fingers that go into the tank as well so they are not shy /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

I have had a look through all the books I have and cant find any real mention of the male or female being a different colour /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" />
