    Two shots of one of my males. And yes, this is the real deal. Parents were caught by Linke and Dahl in Bangka in 2008.

    Absolutely gorgeous Gustav!! *licks lips* How many do you have in total? Would be nice to see a female for documentation.

    I have 5. I think I have 3 males and 2 females but I’m not 100% sure. I have 1 pair that are in their own tank (the ones above, you can see the female in the background) and 3 that are in another tank which is basicly a jungle of Ceratopteris roots so I’m not quite sure of the sexes there

    I bet you won’t find this one as it has never (as far as I know) been commercially imported /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” /> But there are several other Parosphromenus that are just as nice

    We’ll cover the genus properly in the Knowledge Base at some point. I have photos of several species (and their habitats in some cases) already. Why has deissneri not been imported before Gustav?

    I honestly don’t know, Matt. The typelocality for deissneri is Baturussak on Bangka (Bleeker 1859), but nobody has ever been there to catch them since then. Parosphromenus bintan occurs on the west side of the island and P. deissneri only occurs on the east side. And the main difference between the two is supposedly that P. deissneri has a pointed caudal fin while P. bintan has a rounded one. Now this is the weird part, because the ones that I got are F1 from wild caught P. deissneri that did have a pointed caudal fin, but my fish doesn’t. So we’re not sure if it’s got anything to do with age or what http://www.akvarieviden.dk/artikler/vis_artikler.php?tid=123

    But you need to translate it from Danish with Google Translate or whatever
