    I admit: Dianema is new to me as Scleromystax is. they have been on my list of course. specially Scleromystax barbatus, a fantastic species. in my new place there is no problem with temperature, all is possible.
    last week I took the chance and got some catfish-species. here some first pics

    Dianema sp “Red Ituxi”
    the discussion is started wether it is “cf. urostriatum” (or d. verissimi???) In my eyes not d. urostriatum.



    wonderfully coloured Corydoras sterbai, wild specimen

    and for comparison a tank bred specimen out of a group I have been keeping since 2007 now

    sparkling wild Corydoras sp CW 009

    Scleromystax barbatus, probably bred in Germany

    Corydoras weitzmani, bred in Germany

    they are mixed in a 110 lt-tank at the moment. makes some new tanks for the breeding …

    I seen these Dianema being advertised via Glaser a week or two ago, looked very nice – good find!

    The ones in Glaser pics do not seem to have any markings across the middle of their flanks?

    I have tried to breed Dianema longibarbis a few times over the years with no luck and in fact I think my oldest fish in my collection is probably one of these catfish. I got them in 2002, I remember because it was a newly set up tank in my flat and it came from someone else – it was pretty much fully grown then too. Could be 10 or 11 years +?

    cheers

    thanks Colin. in fact they are of the Glaser-import a month ago.
    Brownish to redish specimen are known of d. longibarbis. the present species is as Frank Schäfer says in between the two valid species.
    what would be of great interest are infos by keepers about water parameters etc. Sucessful breeding is reported for d. urostriatum

    I’ve never seen a report of a successful Dianema breeding event so if you find anything please do share Charles. Love those red ones whatever they turn out to be!
