    So, here is another chinese loach. Thought I posted it here already, but I can’t find it.
    These two loaches were found in a shipment of chinese Rhinogobius from a employee of an aquaristic wholesaler. Another bycatch of this shipment was a few Vanmanenia.

    I’m not sure with the genus, Schistura? or maybe Oreonectes? They are more peaceful than the most Schistura and live together with Barbatula and Phoxinus.

    First they look so:

     After they settled in:

    Have to take some new photos.

    Cheers,

    Nice Thomas. Did you get the Vanmanenia too?

    No, only this two loaches. But in the Amazonas magazine was a pic of the Vanmans. Not sure where I have it at the moment…

    Looks like a Schistura to me – the head shape looks wrong for Oreonectes?
