I picked up 5 of the biggest Y. nigrolineata that I have ever seen last week, these are as wide as they are deep and well over 3" long

Hopefully with my existing 5 this is another breeding project /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Must've missed this thread earlier Mark. /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" /> Just wondering how these behave compared with Y. sidthimunki?

Thankfully they are way more placid than the sids are, it was one of my concerns that with the size of these if they are as feisty and inquisative as the sids they could do some damage, but I am glad to to say they dont bother any of their tankmates and keep to themselves.

The second group of nigrolin's are a bit more shy than the first group and they do really appreciate cooler temps with plenty of flow and oxygen

Cheers Mark. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Interesting about the temperature - I'm guessing the ones seen in the trade are collected in Thailand or Laos rather than Yunnan?

Edit: do you keep them at room temperature then?

As far as collection goes I dont know Matt but I would tend to lean toward Laos (long story), they are housed in the shed with Sinibotia, Ruby barbs and Notropsis lutrensis and Bitterlings at the moment and the tank heater is only there to stop the temps falling to much in winter.
