    And the hatching, sometimes with assistance from already released larvaes. 🙂

    Thanks Matt

     

    After 48 h: The outside gills got smaller. The larvaes can feed artemia nauplii.

    Today they are three days and I’ve put them in a 30 cm tank. Now they are in the same stadium as the larvaes I’ve found two years ago. I’m unable to see some rest oft the outside gills maybe they are complete gone.

    Are you using a microscope to make these pics?

    No, the pics were made with a bridge camera (Fuji finepix s5600) with a macro converter (Raynox MSN-202)

    Hi Thomas, it looks very much like the fish listed as C. cf. sinensis in Chen and Chang (2005). I can scan the relevant pages for you if you haven’t seen it already.

    Shame on me, but I’ve lost the mail with the pics… Can you send me the pics once again please, Matt?

    Today I bought this pair, came in over the Netherlands as “Grondel Taiwan Cobitis sinensis” in trade. I’m sure it’s the same as my other “Taiwan Cobitis” I’ve got five years ago. It’s also the same wholesaler.

    So, the coloration of the new Cobitis is different to the old ones. While the old are more brown, the new import are more greyish and the markings are darker. The main characteristics in patterning are mostly similar, so I don’t think that’s the new Cobitis belongs to another species, but maybe they are from another river(system). To be on the safe side I tried to get a second pair, but it seems I’ve failed…looks like two females :) If so, I have to catch a male the days.

    Left a new, right an old loach. The color different is good to see, and is obtain even after two weeks in the same tank.

    In the front is a very nice female  in a very good  condition with 6 cm TL.

     

    Cheers,

    Thomas
