    Following the conversation with Matt, I dug up a couple of old images… maybe something is useful.

    My group was obtained in 2007, of the 6 critters at least 3 are still alive, possibly 5. — the fish is highly secretive and territorial and I have no way of seeing hiding places on the back side of the tank to count them. The photos were made in a 10g qtank, the currently live in a 55g…well hidden… I can only see parts of them sticking out of the hiding holes, usually tails, sometimes heads… Seeing both ends is not possible anymore:

    Newly imported fish often has damage to the dorsal:

    Nearly impossible to see an entire fish,

    Even in the qtank the fish was trying to find individual hiding places, one spent an entire month like this:

    After being moved to 55g… they were still somewhat visible for about a month

    Another tankmate, perhaps someone wants to ID?

    (these were obtained as Pangio pulla.. possibly Pangio doriae?)

    Wow that’s quite a big chunk of dorsal missing! The Pangio does look like P. doriae, think I see nasal barbels? Let’s hope Thomas spots this…

    Have spots this

    I would also say P. doriae. Or cf. doriae, cause there are some different color forms from this loach and as I know the dark variant is the “real” P. doriae. But I think this is stuff for a new topic. :)

    If it doesn’t have pelvic fins than is P. lidi an option. This two species looks very similar and both have nasalbarbels but P. doriae has pelvic fins and P. lidi not.

    The other two tank mates looks like Lepidocephalichthys guntea to me.

    Thanks guys,

    Dorsal damage seems very common and takes long time to repair, so i thought this may be worth mentioning.

    P.doriae is what I thought, except for the color… but it is five years too late to try to track down the origins. Yes, L.guntea’s are the other ones.
