    thanks for the tip! Luckily I was using only methylene blue. 3 days at full dose now without any side effect

    That’s interesting Charles. I’m assuming flubenol is flubendazole? Have you had trouble with it and any other fish? I’ve never seen any reaction with any of mine.

    That’s right, Jim. I lost about a hundert Salarias of 3 cm and some from last year going together in a 240 litre tank.

    Some pics of the “lost generation” at home in a 240 litres-tank.

    Have you bred it finally Charles? I recently discovered there is a population near to where we are living now (Málaga), so my intention is to go and find it soon.

    I wouldn’t choose the word for the method described above. Wasn’t my work only as I couldn’t stay there all the time.

    The intent was to see, if it could work with the lake-water and some food for the existing Brachionus.

    By the was: the yolk-powder is tricky, water-quality can deteriorate quickly.

    Would be interesting to see how spanis secimen look like.

    Well fed, Matt.

    Less colourful?

    Yes, very brown. :) This was in the middle of August so I think the males would not be in breeding condition at that time though?

    Would be very late for the Swiss lakes. Water temperature is certainly limiting the food offered in September/October. Situation in Spain can be different.

    The pic shows certainly not a dominant male, judging by the specimen I’ve seen here.

    A very late addition: the loach from Maggiore would be Cobitis bilineata rather than C. taenia. Both species are extremely similar but in males of C. bilineata the dark spots “connect” in the breeding season to form two continuous lines, hence the name.

    I don’t know, what you are referring to, but C. bilineata is not on any list of Swiss freshwater fishes.  As long as they stay in the Italian part of the sea? Wink

    I have very bad news, I had moved my Salaria group outside for the winter break around 1 month ago in a large tank with gasterosteus aculeatus. Everything looked fine until yesterday, I found them all dead (not the stickleback, they are fine). Water temperature was oscillating in these days between 7 and 4 degrees. I have no idea of what happened. RIPConfused
