    Looks rather similar to paracobitis… which country is it from?

    Not too sure but possibly China.

    paracobitis is from China. If this is the fish and you have more than one, be careful, they are killers.

    Killer ! I am surprised. I used to have a Paracobitis sp. he was pretty well behave.

    Will certainly keep a close watch.

    Thanks for the input. :)

    I’m down to one now … did not realize the nature of the disease that took the others… but the winner seems very happy and fat, once he eliminated the competition.

    Unfortunately, chances of finding more in the US are slim. :(

    Hi Ben great to see you here. :)

    Agreed on the Leptobotia, first one is trickier. Am guessing the fish darken when settled?

    Thanks for the greetings, Matt.

    Yup, all of them are not as “clean” now.

    Looks like a leucistic individual? Do you have several with this patterning?

    If it is Chinese it should probably be referred to the genus Homatula as per Kottelat (2012).

    No, Matt. No new development on the ID.
