    Yes please Charles that would be great. The profile is basically finished already and I’ll add the rest of the genus this week.

    hi Andy
    three 2/1 I think. the others in that shipment were acanthoc. guntea (?) and schistura savona.

    and that’s the way the female looks like today. I think it’s gravid

    the tank is now in the upper row. they didn’t like the moving and are most time hidden

    and fat

    the female changed colours. with a flash it’s a brilliant blue

    I hope to have added to some more discussions, Andy

    Hi Charles , always enjoy these loach debates /wub.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:wub:” border=”0″ alt=”wub.gif” /> do we know how large they get , I would guess about 70mm” for females ,perhaps 60mm” the males ?
    I,m enjoying my new Y . cruciatus , and was thinking that a nice group of these would really mix well ? are yours kept alone or in a mixed tank , if mixed what share’s their tank ?

    mixed with desmocaris trispinosa.
    I wouldn’t mix them with yunnanilus – too “busy”. L. annandalei are about 5 cm now and a little shy. a good mix would be with L. guntea – have a look at the profile, I remember vagely a propostion made there.
    when they are lazy, lying around the body sometimes seems to be doing “up-and-down” dislocations.

    Yeah Charles ,I think you are right about the Cruciatus being a bit too busy , are you thinking the Cruciatus would hog the food , and possibly starve the Annandalei out ?

    Funnily I have a couple of the L.guntea , mine are mixed in with Spiney Eels , Schistura ,and 8 Lobocheilus sp/ the Lobo’s are Swines with one another /rolleyes.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:rolleyes:” border=”0″ alt=”rolleyes.gif” /> apparently they are algae eaters in the wild , but become scale eaters in captivity /wub.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:wub:” border=”0″ alt=”wub.gif” /> I just think they are great and any excuse to talk about them
