    Anyone wants to opine on this photo:

    I don’t think this is g.ocellatus… in fact, not sure 100% it is a gastro, but perhaps I’m going blind?

    Looks like a beautiful group of g. zebrinus. Nice find!!

    No, not mine, I took the photo from a new AB listing…. I was only curious of what they may be. I never saw a zebrinus group, only contaminants.
    Still, cannot have them :(

    Same here. I’ve never seen more than one or two in a mix and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen that form. I think Charles has some like that. I’m tempted. They don’t need much room and are great glass/plant cleaners!

    Very nice! This is the form with thicker, more solid stripes that we id’d as G. zebrinus when doing the profiles. Still unsure here.

    I’m tempted too but really unlikely I can afford more fish now…plus I want something else more (sinensis from Anthony) … Plaamoo, this is the “tiger hillstream listing on AB now, I never dealt with this vendor, but he had some interesting listings before too.

    While we are on ID’ng listings…
    http://aquariumfish.net/catalog_pages/sharks_eels_loaches/loaches_for_sale.htm#top2
    has a “Butterfly Loach” listing, the photo however is http://aquariumfish.net/images_01/hillstream_loach_100606a3_w0480.jpg. g.ocellatus this time?–somehow I’m not sure again.

    Still unsure here.

    Didn’t Charles get confirmation from Dr. Tan? There are some very different looking fish attributed to g. zebrinus.

     

    Mike, I saw that one also. Another confusing group for me. G. farrigus/ocellatus.????

    I’m primarily checking to ensure they are not pseudogastros or something else… this last group makes me think perhaps sinogastromyzons… probably not?

    BTW — to add to confusion — Wetspot lists “gastromyzon myersi” now. If it is pseudogastromyzon, the price is good.

    I’d say definitely gastromyzon Mike. My LFS had some p. myersi labeled g. myersi a while back and they came from wetspot.

    I think p.myersi is a much more exciting fish than g.anything…. actually p.anything to be trumps g.anything (breeding!)

    Hi all

    The group: all G. zebrinus. singel pic shows a rare G. farragus with marvellous pattern.

    Cheers Charles

    Thanks Charles,

    Funny all the more interesting gastros lately… Here is one more shot from yet another vendor (also current AB listing):

    Here’s another from wetspot’s newsletter. Not g. zebrinus.,     G. farrigus or ocellatus?

    The orange spot in the base of the dorsal makes me think this is something else….
    BTW, notice the price is reasonable.

    G. ocellatus
