    Hi all,
    a while back I posted pics of these while still in the shop. Well, I looked at them long enough and had to get a few. I bought 3 to start as i only have a 10 gal Q tank and I wanted to see how they’d act. 1 more week in the q tank and I’ll add them to the 75 gallon loach tank. I plan to get three more next trip to Seattle. So far I really like them! Not colorful but a subtle beauty I think. I’ll add a few pics and short vid.(please turn off the volume, some fool is whistling!) Also a link (at the bottom)to siamenis.org page that shows a few different species. Looks like l. burmanuca to me?

    Thanks Andy. I’m hoping that they don’t grow too much! They were in the fish shop for a year and didn’t grow at all. I don’t know how they feed but they’ll be well spoiled here. They ordered apollo sharks and got these by mistake. I don’t think they’ve sold a one until now!

    Hi Plaamoo,there are different opinions about whether or not the growth of fish can be stunted , but I think you could probarbly start these fish growing with a bit of t l c ! not sure of their expected size but I’d guess at least 6 to 8 inches ?

    Not certain but leaning towards L. lineatus. *scratches chin* Very nice anyway!

    I’ve gone back & forth myself Matt. has the head of lineatus & the body markings of burmanuca. As always tough to positive ID with pics!

    Mmm I think if they were Lineatus the orangy/red colouration on the vetrals and anal fins would be visable even at this small size ?
