Hi all

the mistery about the "yellow" Tanichthys is solved. In AMAZONAS 41 Mai/June 2012 Ingo Seidel shows pics of the new species, pics of eggs and fry inclusive.

The species has been found by Mikael Hakànson/Imazo and Saigon Aquarium in 2009 Da Nang province in Vietnam. Specimen have been exported by Saigon Aquarium to Europe in 2010. The species is easy to breed, but no exports are to be expected futhermore.

The species is not identic with T. thacbaensis.

Seems Jörg Bohlen is at work for the description since 2010. So we are waiting.

Cheers Charles

I was fortunate enough to pick up a dozen of these little beauties from Frank's Aquarium last week.

Yes, the largest ones are only about 1/2 adult size.

Lucky you! I saw the fish @ Frank, and he had to pass on them in favor of the loaches :(

Hopefully you'll breed them soon enough!

Are these the ones that are listed as thacbaensis at Pier?

Highly probable, they are a Singapore import, on the export list now, and the same exporter ships to Europe.

Hi Dennis how are these doing for you? Just adding a profile and it would be great to get some first-hand experience. :)

I got them too, a couple of weeks ago. (At least two people who got them from the original shipment of a year ago, bred them, so the fish is likely to become common in the hobby... I got juvenile F1s, larger than the new imports, maybe already breedable).

Nothing to add for the profile, other than my impression that the species is smaller than the other two...need to wait a bit to make sure.

Ok thanks Mike. Will go ahead and add a basic profile now. Any pics of your ones?

Hi Matt.  They are doing well.  Seem to be rather slow growing and a bit picky eaters, but perhaps they are wild caught fish.  They seem to prefer to eat from the surface when offered prepared food.  I've been feeding them baby brine shrimp, daphnia moina, mosquito larvae, golden pearls, and Repashy gel.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find, as Mike points out, that these turn out to be the smallest of the three.

Update:

I have some fry now. The group is 6m/4f, the same mentioned above.

Unfortunately, I never bred "normal" white clouds, so I can only compare with danios.

This took so long because I was doing other things too and I was actually trying to breed them Embarassed, and this did not work all too well.... the right approach was just to leave them alone in a well-lit planted tank, feed well and let them do it. This way fry appears, and the parents do not seem to be eating them (or eating all of them)... I see some 5-6mm fry in the tank now. I made a "backup" just now, removing 10 newborns... these things are so fast that catching anything larger than a newborn is beyond my skills anyway :( Newborns btw like danios may cling to the tank walls but can swim for a long time if disturbed. Newborn is comparable to zebra danio fry in size, but more transparent, hard to see in a tank.

The growth speed is very impressive... the oldest fry (came from examining the gravel suc in the tank...only one, and this was the end of this approach)... anyway it is about 2.5 weeks old now, nearly a 1cm in size, outgrew all the rainbow tankmates (who started much larger), and has a red tail already.

Sera seems to work as the initial food, paramecium is eaten too but probably not needed, about 3 days to artemia.

Great news, Mike.

Hope you can go on with it.

And of course we are all longing for a scientific descriotion.

Cheers Charles
