    Hi Matt
    as promised some pics.
    the colisas were very hiding all the time. so I did some gardening to take the pics.
    boraras maculata came in as “containment” of boraras brigittae. they took the opportunity to visit the “open space”





















    PS: boraras maculatus of course. it’s still on the importer’s list as “maculata”
    I don’t know if the first eggs of chuna are going to hatch. took a nest out of the tank, but if I remember right, the fry is tiny

    What’s that stripy critter on the substrate in the first few Boraras pics Charles? Some Brachygobius sp.?

    they are on the list as b. xanthozonus but are b. doriae in my opinion.
    the pics I sent you are of the b. xanthozonus Pascal found in Borneo.

    Nice pictures Charles.

    Isn’t that B. merah in the last picture?
    Lovely little fishes.

    The last one looked like a B. merah to me too. Are you sure they are maculatus? They look more like B. micros, lovely fish though.

    Agreed that the last one is different but the rest look like B. maculatus to me. B. micros is a fairly colourless fish.

    hi Matt
    the question when the name changed into colisa? as far I remember it was BRITZ to propose the change in 2004. here the last statement I know.

    http://labyrinthfisch-forum.de/showthread….mp-Trichogaster

    seems logic to me. but as I said in another thread, I’m far away from labyrinth-matters since some years. fishbase didn’t change the names, so I’m not shure what is valid.

    for the last pic: it’s B. merah. in Germany there is a discussion going on if B. merah is B. brigittae. I’ll try to find the articles.
    cheers Charles

    I think Britz proposed the name change from Colisa to Trichogaster?

    that’s right. as I don’t have the paper I can’t say more about

    R. Britz: Why Colisa has become Trichogaster and Trichogaster is now Trichopodus. In: AAGB Labyrinth. 136, 2004, S. 8–9.

    I just had a glimps here

    about the change: “That is not too bad”. (Britz)
    I agree

    finally I could get some pics of the spawning. of course they did it in a hidden place, so it was fairly difficult to get the right angle
    colours and pattern changed a little












    and some small juveniles as result. actual size about 10 mm

    Brilliant – did you separate the fry from the parents Charles?

    in a certain way: I saw some pebbles, took the pet-bottle formed to a cup (“Fangglocke”) and flinged all into the woworae tank. and forgot about it.
