    I’ve got some new fish in my tank, and their home grown! My puzzle is that I have what seem to be three male Lineolata and one female spotted… But these look like pure Lineolata.

    What do people think?

    So far i’ve spotted two.

    No which is why i’m puzzled. I emailed Mark last week about this and he seemed certain that Spotties and Lineolata wouldn’t interbreed. They look like young spotties after looking at this page: http://www.loaches.com/articles/images/sew…mposite2Jpg.jpg

    The spotted female was an exchange for my Macrobrachium at my local MA after they miss-sold them too me…

    I’m worried I may of hoovered some of the fry up when younger as I only seem to have two. Unless the Panda Garra has eaten them. After reading Emma Turners info on loaches.com I may check my external filter, but I put a sponge over the intake to prevent this.

    Is there any chance eggs/fry may have been transported in the bag or have you had the female for a while?

    I’ve had the female about 8 months. The males I’ve had just over a year.

    Might be interesting to see how the fry turn out then?

    This is the loach I suspect is the farther, he is the largest loach in the tank.

    Well the fry is still growing, here is how he looks today.

    The markings seem to blend both parents atm.

    IMHO, the pattern development is not what I have observed with either species here but more toward spotties…. Very interesting indeed.

    Quite a few changes and more good news!

    The first fry is starting to look like the parents now!

    The extra good news is that they must of spawned again! This is another young fry in the tank!
