    Been looking for them since the mid 90s!!!

    A guy used to come into an aquatic shop I worked in about once a month asking for them and I just loved how they looked too. Especially since the Big Axelrod atlas had so many species listed.

    Are they not banned because they could survive in the wild in Europe?

    That would make sense. They won’t be banned in the Netherlands though, I suspect – nothing’s banned here?

    Cheers for that Thomas! Any idea how big Etheostoma spectabile gets? You know any of the German keeprs and what species they keep?

    I think so, in the UK at least?

    I know that E. blennoides, E. caeruleum and E. spectabile are all in Germany because a member here has all three.

    I had caeruleum about 16yrs. ago but never managaed to do anything with them. Beautiful fish though. Been trying trying to get hold of some of the Ruinemanns stuff for some months now, since I discovered they had them, without success so far. I know where they are in UK but just not got around to moving in on them.
    Must put more effort in (as my primary teacher used to say)!!!

    sounds interesting – is someone in the UK breeding them?

    Yeah Ruinemans is a wholesaler that only sells to shops or other wholesalers, and probably only Dutch-based ones.

    Well, it’s trickier to find interesting species in the trade but various other aspects of living here more than make up for it.
