    some pics of interesting species in my tanks

    elassoma okefenokee, a litlle juwel; hard to detect and photograph
    a male, pale when coming in

    parasphaerichthys lineatus. very shy and still not showing much colour

    yunnanilus brevis
    in a very bad condition when arriving, but sound as a bell after three weeks

    and behaving as gentle lovers

    Wow! Those e. okefenokee are stunning! I’ve never seen them, and they’re native American. From a quick search sounds like they breed readily, should be fun Charles.

    elassoma are beautiful, Jim but not at the best on the pics. they even make a much more delightful show with the folding and opening fins when charming the fair maidens. that makes you sit down and watch!
    you can have some when we meet, Matt

    I agree, those elassoma remind me so much of the A. mento pair I saw in LFS a few weeks ago, where the male sadly died in-store

    [Matts reaction reminds me of mine when Steve [thedarkone]rang me about the Somphongsi Barbs , a kind of euphoric panic ?]

    makes part of the aquaristic fever, isn’t it?

    got to agree on those ellasoma, stunning. what sort of water parameters are the akin to? having never kept this group of fish i have no idea of their likes or dislikes.

    nothing special: 1-5° KH, 18-22°, a lot of plants, coconuts, leaves, stones structuring a 30 lt-tank. slow water.

    Hi

    An interesting pic of a P. brevis at night. I’ve never seen that pattern.petruichthys-brevis-Nachtfärbung-CSC_3791.jpg

     

    They oviously spawn now and then, but no fry in that community tank. Some wild S. lineolata of 2008 do still spawn and now and then a youngster survives.

    Cheers Charles
