    The problem with S. elongata is, that they are very delicate about the water temperature.

    Last jear we have a very hot summer here in Austria, the water temperature went up to 26 degrees. 

    Thats too much for this species, unfortunately I lost some of mine.

    The other Sewellia species have absolutly no problems up to 27 degrees. (For a short-term)

    In my opinion It’s better to let them in their natural environment.

    It is the same like the other sewellia types, females are usually bigger and have a rounder body shape.

    The fish in the short video are some of the first elongata shipment in november 2010.

    The first shipment include very small and young fish and some of them are still small, about 6cm.

    The big ones first come in january 2012. I think there were only two shipments of this species.

    One evening I saw S. elongata spawn.

    But I never found any fry in the community tank.

    Make a short video.

    Very nice viriousus, they are in top condition! 

    Lately you can see more of them in the aquarium trade.

    Old T8 lamps are very helpful for the aufwuchs growth.

    I have also seen the new Glaser shipment.

    Would say SEW03 & “SEW02”,  no SEW04 the headshape is too pointed. 

    Three different sizes,  the smaler ones have more demarcated spots,  some of the bigger ones look different as Charles said. 

    Will post some pics soon.

    Some news from my side; got some more fish that looks like S. albisuera, now I have males and females. 

    Interesting new headshapes…. 

    Pictures coming soon.

    All of them look different compared to SEW01.

    I think Sew01 only spawn at night, I have also seen nothing about it.

    I know nothing about it. All wild caugth, one problem is the slow growing and the small final length of aquarium bred Sewellia.

    They need Aufwuchs around the clock!

    On the productivity, it does not fail.

    Nice shots!

    Have you ever seen them spawn, how they do?

    The fish with the strange markings grow even slower than the others.

    The one from the post 9 months ago have now a TL of only 3cm!

    Here’s a pic with a adult female and a junger one how have different markings. Much more spotted and extreme slow growth,

    I think that coud be the hybrids?

    I also think so, the same behavior body shape and size may be a clue.

    Sew01 and lineolata are to different, Sew01 and albisuera are very identical.

    I have already posted pictures of a strange one here:

    Only that one have the strange head shape but some others also have the same markings.

    Only stops the growth of suspended algae types. (Schwebealgen)

    But highly recommended in any case.

    Of course all kind of hillstreams love small mosquito larvaes.

    In my opinion a UVC-cleaner is never wrong for this types of fish.
