    I know nothing about loaches but those are really nice. Are they shy?

    Yes, but the one on the last pic isn’t very shy. It is a juvenile with round about 50 mm and very often to see.

    I guess I’ve get at least three gravid females, the orange part at the belly (first pic) seem to be eggs. I’ve done a closer look with a magnifier.

    Yes, it looks good. They are leaving their hiding places when they smell food. They are interested in frozen and dry food, and some females are gravid.

    All in all they do their job much better as the Microcobitis, which are one of the shyest loaches I ever kept. They not really makes fun, cause you never see them. Only at night.

    Sadly I have to announce three losses at the Niwaella, and I fear it is possible that one will follow. All wasn’t in a very good condition.

    But another good news: Petra bought some (for me unknown) chinese Cobitis for me…really beautys!

    Hopefully you will have another chance with healthier fish.

    In re cobitis: it actually would be interesting to see various cobitis patterns you collected re-posted together.

    At least at the moment three Niwaella looks very good and feeding well. Hopefully the small one is a male, so I have both gender. The one I’m guessing it’s a male has a lump at the after and is thin. The gravid female is very shy and I see it nearly only one or two times a week. Haven’t seen it for three days and thought she was dead, but yesterday she was back again. But the area with the eggs looks not so healthy…

    Thanks, Thomas! — an interesting collection!

    Best of luck with Niwaella — hope you stabilize them.
