    Peniculina (class Ciliatea, order Hymenostomatida). A suborder of ciliate protozoa in which characteristic bands of cilia (comprising the peniculus) occur in the cytopharyngeal region. Body cilia are arranged uniformly. There are several families, including the well-known genus Paramecium, found in aquatic environments.

    OR:

    Peniculus
    1 – From the prodelision used by Plautus in his work, “Menaechmi”. Formed from the words “Penis” and “culus”, it means “Precious penis”.
    2 – conventionally, a sponge.

    Spurcamen = “filth” in Latin….

    So you’re close mate…

    Ps – scientific names aren’t necessarily in Latin they’re just specific to a given species, but now I’m just being a geek…

    Mark, logically yes, but I’ve kept many fish without filter over the years and was wondering if the relative bioload of the shrimp will be small enough to consider doing the same…

    What types of fish, Matt?

    Yeah we’ve had similar temperature recently, it was 32*C in my ponds yesterday – i could give discus a go.

    Generally species from still-water environments David. Anabantoids, a few livebearers, a couple of killi species. Manuel doesn’t filter his Aphanius containers so neither will I. These tanks were all very lightly stocked with only one or two pairs of fish mind. Obviously I’m not suggesting it’s ok to do this with fish that need a lot of oxygen/water flow or in heavily-stocked tanks.
