    according to new studies the following species are actually the same:

    http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/boraras-merah/

    and

    http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/search/boraras

     

    seems that the striped one is the male and the dotted is the female.

     

    i would like some confirmation if somebody has been looking in to this or possibly knows anything about it.

    Hi Cuna,

    would you by any chance have a source for those “new studies”? I’d be very much interested!

    Regards

    I live in Stockholm, Sweden.

    I buy my fish from an importer and he is quite the fish nerd.

    He is the one that told me this. I will try to get more info on it but i see no reason why he would fabricate these things.

     

    It is said to be very very fresh studies made by swedes and also in germany.

    There was an article about this last year in the German BSSW (barben-salmler-schmerlen-welse) specialist groups members magazine as far as I remember. Haven’t studied it that hard though and I can’t find it right now.

    Hi Cuna,

    I didn’t mean to say that the story is a fabrication, I am just generally interested in the subject!

    It would be great if you could get more info on that but no sweat if you can’t

     

    Thanx for the info kim m, I’ll try to find out more about it!

     

    Regards

    This topic has been brought up here before a couple of years ago. As of then Erik Åhlander was speculating that it might actually be 2-4 species. Anyway, I have the article from the BSSW if anyone wants it either e-mail me or send me a PM. I might just e-mail Erik  and see if he knows anything about it. If there has been a Swedish study then he ought to know.

    I’d love a copy please Gustav. This has been mentioned on here a few times but I’ve never seen any conclusive evidence.

    Ok, translated it more-or-less but one thing isn’t clear to me – how did the author determine the gender of such tiny fish?

    Also, I think I understood that some populations have males with B. merah-type markings, which would mean it’s not strictly correct to say that B. merah is simply female B. brigittae.
