    Another new one, for me. These are “Malaysian stone suckers”

    Very shy. This is the first good look I’ve got and quickly snapped a pic.

    Looks like this one Jim? Something from the H. leonardi group and definitely not H. yunnanensis though it’s listed as such elsewhere. Reason for that is there are no commercial exports from the area of Yunnan in China where H. yunnanensis lives (Mr. Tree told me) and the one you have is nearly always found in shipments of H. smithi and/or H. tweedei which suggests it’s from Thailand.

    They’re very cool and I’m bl**dy jealous! dry.gif

    What’s with laos? fishbase counts H. yunnanensis as a native species together with H. smithi and tweediei. Is this right?

    Yunnan borders Laos so guessing that maybe it occurs in that periphery region? Still way out of range of commercial collectors though.

    I’ve been looking at that profile Matt. I remember a discussion about these before. I got to the shop while they were still in the bag. These 2 and a smithi/tweedei looking fish. I’ve asked them to order more next week so see what comes?

    Ah ok, thanks Matt. I’ve found five of these: two in a shipment of H. smithi (in this shipment were also a huge zollingeri) and three in another shop in a shipment of H. tweediei.

    These are settling in a little but still very shy. I did get a quick peek today and a slightly better pic. I’ll get some good ones eventually!

    Looks like you’re doing a great job with them. What’s that cute characid in the background – some Axelrodia sp.?
