    in the last months I’ve got some pretty species: kottelatlimia hypporhynchos, microsynodontis sp “maluba Bay” (Stanly Pool) and serpenticobitis octozona – which have been shown here. But they are so nice fish you shurely forgive me. All are not easy to picture.

    Cheers Charles

    Nice pictures, Charles.

    I do like those S. octozona, but haven’t seen them overhere (yet).

    Nice Charles! Your s. octozona appear different than mine. Yours have white bellies and with mine the bands continue right around the bottom. How are you finding them? Mine are very reclusive. I can’t get a decent pic. They also changed to a deep bronze color over time. May be the water??

     

    Just caught one peeking at me.

    Yup, very nice Charles. 🙂

    How big are the Serpenticobitis? Reason: the colour pattern is more similar to that given for S. zonata rather than S. octozona but maybe it changes with age? Jim’s fish looks more like S. octozona sensu stricto.

    Hi Matt

    they are at 4.5- 5 cm. the pics were taken just after coming in. That has been some months ago and they seem to grow.  All I can see is, that the stripes go down to the belly, so only a slim white lining can be seen. I’ll try to take nwe pics if possible.

    Cheers  Charles

    Thanks Charles. Do you think the Kottelatlimia might be two species? Smaller one possible K. pristes?

    Hi Matt,

     

    I’ve also smaller ones between my K. hipporhynchos which looks a bit similar to Charles small hipporhynchos, but after some months they all look the same here.

    I wonder if the small Kottelatlimia which I got as K. pristes really was the pristes? For my eyes It looks more like the (small) hipporhynchos than the pristes.

     

     

    not easy at all…

    un update

    As the frontglass of a tank in the lowest row dicided to part, I had to evacuate some fish. So Microsynodontis sp. Maluba went for a short foto-session into a small tank. All well fed and very active. Males up to 12 cm, females about 9 cm.

    The session with Serpenticobitis cf octozona had to be short, they reacted anfavourably to the shortcut of oxygen and didn’t like the procedure.

    regarding the ID of S. octozona: Jim’s specimen and the pic here

    http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Ian_Baird/publication/234108647_Fishes_of_Southern_Laos/links/0912f50f3534aebb47000000.pdf

    nr 188, show identical patterns. Only difference in mine is the head-pattern.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers Charles

    Interesting coloration there Charles. I’ve not seen that before. Maybe just a leucistic gene or two?

    I hadn’t sen them for years, Jim and that bright golden/black coloration was a surprise. It’s even more intensive now, as they have settled in a new tank and the shock is over. Of course it’s a matter of genes. And of feeling well?

    Cheers Charles

    Love the long caudal-fin on the Microsynodontis! The Serpenticobitis match the description of S. octozona imo.
