    These are being offered as “Strawberry Spot Sucker Loach, Gastromyzon sp.” Haven’t got anymore info yet. The pic says “Chinese”?? Expensive at $18. ea. Looks familiar but ???? Any ideas?

    PS. I asked for a pic and this is what i got. Not sure if it’s actual or borrowed?

    I knew I’d seen this fish before. It looks like Zou’s pic that you posted first in this thread Matt, protomyzon??

    Yup, appears to be the undescribed Protomyzon sp. ‘red spot’ Jim. You going for it?

    Trying to find space, and money…..Will let you know. Do you, or anyone have any more info on these? What is typical protomyzon temperament? Are they aggressive??

    Feel free to delete this thread or change the title. I’ll start a new one if I get some.

    If these are from China, perhaps they are Erromyzons rather than Promomyzons?

    Temperament-wise: I only saw small E.sinensis contaminants in a Cheni shipment… they were able to hold their own and I suspect could out-harass Chenis… should be quite interesting…

    Is this your store or Wetspot?

    …..

    of the hillies on the market, I’d consider stigmata first… Imho, more attractive, and active while not vicious…. I’m being tempted to get another 2-3 while i can.

    Have split this thread since we were wandering way off topic.

    Agreed that the red-spotted fish is more reminiscent of Erromyzon than Protomyzon. At any rate Protomyzon siNensis is a synonym of Erromyzon sinensis and the red-spotted fish doesn’t appear to be that species?
