    Hi,

    I’ve made a new Pangio tank which is “a bit” similar to the Taiwan Cobitis tank I’ve presented here a few day ago. In the pangiotank I’ve also worked with the “Pennygravel” and and a sandy area.

    Inhabitants are 6 P. cf. anguillaris, 4 P. malayana and 3 P. cuneovirgata

    The Pangio cf. anguillaris females are gravid, I think some malayana female and a “cuneo” female too.
    I hope that there will be some fry coming up in the gravel (fingers crossed.)

    One of the malayana

    Maybe I can show some pics of the other pangio too, but they are all very shy

    Cheers,
    Thomas

    Thanks Colin, It’s only tap water, ph 7,2-7,5 8-10┬░dGH KH maybe 5. I don’t know the exact parameters. I can measure it tomorrow if you are interested in the exact data.

    Very nice Thomas! Have you been able to keep the stones & sand seperated long term?

    No, it rots to fast. At the moment I haven’t it in my tanks. Only the Kottelatlimia gets sometimes a few.

    No, it is my first try. A bit of mixture is wished

    Try beech leaves; they don’t rot quickly at all.

    I will give it a try, Stefan. The last leaf litter I have used is from a hornbeam hedge (I think it at least)

    You won’t regret it; some here last well over a year!

    All pangios are moved out. Now they are in a 160 l tank together with all my other pangio.

    For now it’s a second Taiwan Cobitis Tank (the Cobitis fry lives there) maybe some Pseudogastromyzon were a nice addition?

    So no spawning then Thomas?

    no Matt, the malayana female from the pic above still has her eggs inside. Instead tapwater they have now softer and sourer water. A pair of Nemacheilus ornatus moved out together with the Pangios and the male began to court a bit after a short time in the new water.
