    Unbelievably picked these up today – by far the most interesting fishes I’ve seen in a shop since moving here and two species to boot! Think the first is an Acanthopsoides and the second some Protomyzon or Erromyzon sp.? Photos in the bag so pretty horrible but you can see how thin the balitorid is.

    Thanks Jim – almost 3 years in shared accommodation wasn’t really beneficial in terms of setting up tanks but now we have our own place I’m planning on installing a few.

    Or Erromyzon sinensis?

    Don’t think it’s E. sinensis but it might be Erromyzon? Of the pics I have this is the one it resembles most, though I’m not suggesting it is as haven’t seen any red markings as yet.

    Any tips on feeding the balitorid? The tank is only a few weeks old so not much available in the way of aufwuchs. I’ve already put a few rocks outside to grow algae on but the fish needs to eat immediately.

    I like shaving frozen bloodworms with a sharp knife/razorblade to make tiny pieces. Almost all fish seem to like bloodworms! This sometimes gets gastromyzons feeding.

    it’s e. sinensis, Matt. juvenile specimen have not the “complete” bandings, adults do – like this one. and the typical spot in the tail fin base is visible. do you need some pics?
    the pic above shows p. tungpeiensis

    Matt, do you have access to Tetra’s TetraNatura range there? It’s a gel food that’s nutrient rich and you can spread it over stones, useful for situations like yours

    I just went through my library and would send you some pics today
    to clarify: your specimen (your pics above) is p. tungpeiensis. the pic by Zou Hang shows a protomyzon sp (spotted head, different fin pattern etc)
    I hope it’s clear now

    Charles, now I get you…my fish is Pseudogastromyzon tungpeiensis, and following Zhou’s photos it looks basically the same. Nice!

    Gareth I haven’t seen those foods here but will go shopping tomorrow and see what I can find.
