    I wasn’t expecting them to look as good as this, when Neil said which tank they were in I spotted a couple straight away and they just stood out, absolutely stunning

    they are stunning!
    may I add some pics of mine I got a month ago?
    the dozen makes some “noise” in the tank, are very difficult to photograph without AF

    OOOOOH! I’ve never seen these either. Interesting how they vary with some having partial spotting in the top stripe, almost sid-like. I guess that’s supposed to be a juvi charachteristic but they don’t look small.

    they are about 4.5-6 cm long. according to the pics by K. Udomrittthirju the structures of the lateral/side pattern is still given in some adult specimen. in other words: some change the pattern when getting adult some may not.
    I love them and may get some more as they appear only now and then in the market. and the special river-tank is going to be ready soon.

    I’m still waiting for the river-tank. they should go together with tanichthys micagemmae and rhinogobius duospilus.
    at the moment they are together with rhinogobius cf leavelli, sewellia sp (new species for shure), pseudogastromyzon cheni/myersi/fangi/fasciatus/peristictus(?) and tanichthys micagemmae
    I kept y sidthimunki twenty years ago for at least 6 years (one joungster by chance). the actual ones since 2007 (with gravid females). they are going into a seperate tank too.

    Un update. The pattern changes when tehy grow. Here some pics. The last pic shows the pattern in most of the adult specimen. some look like in pic 1, some as in pic 2.ambastaia-nigrolineata-DSC-_5635.jpgambastaia-nigrolineata-CSC_2964.jpgambastaia-nigrolineata-CSC_2970.jpg

    So most of the adults look like giant sidthimunki? 😀

    Yes and no, Matt. The dark banding is remarkable. Not so in adult sidis. And I see a typical black marking in the caudal fin in pic three: stripes. i don’t remember to have seen that in sidis.

    Hi Charles , nice to see you keeping Nigrolin’s for a good while and wittnessed the pattern changing , I heard a lot of people struggled to keep them for a long time without them getting really skinny , what are your secrets , cool water special diet ????
