    Bad photos for now, these were taken when the fish just arrived and did not color up yet, plus the tank — as usual — did not have either light or substrate. Looks much better now but I need to find time to sort out new photos yet.

    One more bad photo:

    The tank is done now (substrate, light, stones) and the fish keeps on improving but I’m having hard time catching opened dorsal which is the main attraction…

    Hi Mike

    Seems to be the P. sp red fin. Red dorsal fin, orange tail fin. Have you seen the Glaser-newsletter?

    Should have some next week.

    Cheers Charles

    They are imported as P.laticeps here… and they do seem to look quite similar to P.laticeps photos (which does not mean much, surely). Yes, red dorsal, tail is either yellow or orange, but not every specimen, some have clear fins (sex?).
    The smaller fish on the 3rd photo that looks like P.myersi is nearly certainly the same species, just juvenile pattern, notice the color in the tail.

    I’ll look for Glaser, or perhaps you have a link handy?

    Charles,

    Thanks for the forward. I’m not convinced that cf-maculatus (aka Red Fin) is the fish I have here, the dorsal pattern seems rather different (I only saw dorsals opened a couple of times and could not photo it, but it did resemble p.laticeps, whereas “Red Fin” does not). I guess we’ll see….

    Here are some pics of P. laticeps we have from Zhou, Mike Lo and Quill, respectively.

    To me the photos probably show the same species as my fish, Zhou’s photo (1st) is a bit different but likely show an older specimen.

    One mismatch with Glaser’s photo showing block dots in the dorsal fin, they are not present in the three photos above and also not present in the larger fish I have (smaller fish almost never shows dorsals).

    Wetspot’s photo of current p.fangi:

    Somehow this photo does look like a fangi to me but the actual fish makes me think “p.fasciatus”. Maybe they need to color up yet.

    Excellent! You know that my photo skills stink, plus I put mine into a dark tank covered with algae (really squeezed now).

    Mike, excellent! Pseudogastros are amazing fishes!

    My P.fangi spawning behavior is very beautiful.

    Very nice indeed!
    How large/old are the babies in your photos?

    My arrived only yesterday… the tank is yet needed to be set up, otherwise I cannot even take photos :(
