    Posted this over on the Facebook Page


    I`m running IE 11, running the site in compatability mode and it appears to be working.

    Easy to do, just browse to the site and get the broken site message. Click on the Cogwheel, and select Compatability View Settings. On the next prompt add SF to the list (should populate the box for you), then Ok this.

    Though the Site is running slow for me at the moment, this could be down to being in Compatability Mode ( a known side-effect)

    Not sure what the underlying issue is, though this is more of a workaround until the issue can be fixed. I`ve seen this at work, and in that instance, I think it was an issue with the code of the website (Is the SF code bespoke?) that the PCs Anti virus software took offence to. (I`m running AVG 2015). Don`t know if that is of any use.

    I know a bit late now, but I taped my tank to a wooden board, with duck tape, really to stop it “flexing” as it was bwing carried.

    Hey,

    Just wondering, but do you plan to upsize the tank as the Piranha gets bigger? As I always thought that most species, if not all required a bigger tank ?

    The Genus was reviewed earlier in the year,
    Scotcat fact sheet

    Amblydoras hancockii is now a synonym

    I`m going to follow up and say either the Cornea or the Iris, given that the species has red eyes. I`m afraid I have no scientfic reasoning, other than being told at school (proabably 20 or so years ago) that red was the natural world`s way of indicating that something was poisonous.

    Going to add something random, like it`s eyes or Or part of the dorsal fin
    Sorry got no back-up on that, more of a random guess

    I recently gave away two Otocinclus macrospilus that were over 2 years old, and they are the only two ones I’ve ever bought, and for the record they weren’t bought at the same time. I never fed them anything but one thing they really seemed to love was leaf litter., which I think they eat to some extent. Mine were fat and happy all the time, and there wasn’t that much algae to eat either.

    Often thought about adding a layer of leaf litter to a tank, as I think it is benefical for a number of species.

    Those are some really interesting points guys. I have a couple of Otocinclus description papers and they both say that the genus is believed to be the most basal of the tribe Hypoptopomatini on the basis of seven unique characteristics, one of which is the structure of the gut. I’d love to know what exactly is unique about that…

    Certainly adds weight to the arguement. Have you got a link to said papers?

    I`ve discussed the subject of Otto Death on another forum with a few of the members. One common thing we noticed was that on examniation, we all saw what was termed “marble belly” with roughly where the gut was assumed to be, with a hardened distended area. I don`t beleive anyone got as far as cutting a dead one open. Though from various observation this was seen on a number of corpses.

    As to the cause of this, we had a few ideas, on the cause of this. I think the main one was the possibily of bacteria in the gut that enabled the fish to digest it`s food, that was lacking in the aquarium enviroment, being put forwards as one suggestion.

    What about Hyphessobrycon Tino??

    Just comparing the first picture in this htread to that on page 12 of the lastest PFK magazine. Had a qucik google and might be worth looking under hyphessobrycon sp. “Junior”

    Those “Tatia perugiae” are really cool looking, im going to be honest and admit iv never seen them before but im interested!

    Cheers Neal, They are an interesting species, sometimes worth looking for “Centromochlus perugiae” as they appear to have two scientific names. I`m not sure if one is valid whilst the other isn`t, as at least on the “big catfish” sites, Ie Planet Catfish, ScotCat and also fishbase amongst others the naming seems to be split 50/50 between the two.

    Do you breed these fish or just a particular passion of yours to collect them? There are some interesting species there.

    I certainly hope to breed them at some satge, though I think I might need to move first

    I`ve found digitial macro mode works well when taking shots of my Tetras, though it is more a case of taking a lot of shots and hoping a few come out well. I seem to find the ratio improves with DM mode over the others.

    Also try siting yourself at about a 45 or so degree angle from the glass, rather than trying to take them “head-on”

    I`ll have to get the camera charged first, as I`m not sure how old my latest shots are. Though he certainly eats a lions share of the food now.

    I don`t know, but might have a bit of a boisterous one, as I`ve seen him “flare”, for want of a better word, at his own refelction, almost to the point of attacking the glass of the tank.

    As I said it was an oversight on my part, but if that oversight resulted in the fry, then maybe the aged water was a contributing factor

    I did attempt to introduce a couple extra to the tank, however the original picked them off. Though having said that he seems quite happy mixing with my keyholes.

    Those shots were taken shortly after I bought him about 12 – 15 months ago. He has bulked out a bit since then.
