Was in Germany last weekend and lucky enough to visit Thomas at his home. Here are a few pics.

We also visited a wholesaler together where Thomas managed to not only identify but also catch a single Pangio malayana specimen from an unlit tank containing several hundred P. semicincta! Headlamps were employed. :D

Why they put the pangios always in the lower tanks? Because they want to see me crawling...!

I'm sure about that. You should have seen his smile, when I asked him for a net and and a bowl...
But that is real addiction to the hobby, Thomas. Wink

Cool. Anyone know what those tanks at the wholesaler are standing on? Looks like plastic tubes?

I don't know which material it is, but it isn't plastic.

Well, my assumption was that if you can spot that fish in an unlit tank mixed in with 500 or so others... Laugh

:D This is a pic from the first days, I would say malayana, maybe with a bit unusual patterning.

I know nothing about loaches but those are really nice. Are they shy?

Yes, but the one on the last pic isn't very shy. It is a juvenile with round about 50 mm and very often to see.

I guess I've get at least three gravid females, the orange part at the belly (first pic) seem to be eggs. I've done a closer look with a magnifier.

Yes, it looks good. They are leaving their hiding places when they smell food. They are interested in frozen and dry food, and some females are gravid.

All in all they do their job much better as the Microcobitis, which are one of the shyest loaches I ever kept. They not really makes fun, cause you never see them. Only at night.

The smallest Niwaella and on of the "last year Cobitis"
