    I haven’t bothered looking for any new loaches for a while but had a run round a couple of shops this morning for a look, to my surprise I found a tank full of some lovely Homaloptera and decided that at £6 or 2 for £10 I would have to treat myself to a few.

    In the end I got 8 but might have to go back for another 6 next week

    Ooh fantastic-looking specimens Mark. Considering the guy didn’t know how to keep them they look in pretty good nick!

    Something about those fish that makes them subtly attractive. Mind if I ask where you picked those up from MD?

    I got them from my local Peter Barratts which probably explains why no one knew what they were < {POST_SNAPBACK}>

    How do you differentiate them exactly mate? I remember reading summat on LOL about the shape of the scales but I thought you had to get in really close to see that difference?

    Yeah its the Scale keels Matt, the orthogoniata have a line on each scale whereas the confuzona have a dot, in the right light and at the right angle they stand out quite well.
    more info here: Scale keels
