    Good morning to all.

    Does anyone know when P. semicincta was first imported into Europe?

    Regards

    Fraser-Brunner, 1940. On some fishes of the genus Acanthophthalmus… :

    During the last few years certain striped loaches of the genus Acanthophthalmus Bleeker have been very popular among aquarium-keepers, and i have had an oppornity of examing a number of specimens, both in life and after preservation. These were all imported and sold under the name Acanthophthalmus kuhli, but examination left no doubt in my mind that several species weree represented among then.

    Then there’s a picture of A. semicinctus pattern on next page. So P. semicincta has been imported to U.S. at least in the 1930s, possibly even in the 1920s. I believe Europe is no exception.

    I came across the following information from Aquarium Atlas:

    First imported 1909 by Vereinigten Zierfischzuechtereien, Berlin Conradshoehe, Germany.

    The information is for Pangio kuhlii, but apparently the imported species is actually P. semicincta
