    Hi Henri,

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a book of H.H.Tan.

    I failed to find the description of G.ridens in the net.

    Thank you very much for the thread from Odyssey on LOL. Very bright and contrast his gastromyzon with unusual pattern. And initially he looked more G.stellatus than later.

    Hi Charles,

    Excuse me, please. Hard week was.

    Fine pics, Charles and Henri. Earlier I would say that all of these gastromyzons at pics are Gastromyzon stellatus except those in the post 8 and my one. Gastromyzon in spite of his wounds eats. I should find a friend or a group of G.stellatus for him.

    To show the difference

    Are these differences of gastros with similar color pattern?  It is likely to be individual or sexual differences.

    Adult specimen measuring SL 55 mm/TL 63 mm,  
     

    Really gigantic gastros. I’ve never seen available gastromyzons of such size. In our trade the size of gastros is from 2 to 4 sm TL. Very seldom single specimens – 5 – 5,5 sm TL.

    Tan shows a drawing – G. stellatus at 19.7 mm – with small vertical blotches.

    From the same shipment – colorless (even on the dark background) gastromyzon, size 3 sm TL with weak reticulated pattern. It became interesting in which species this gastro will turn into.         G.ridens (rounded head shape) or similar reticulated form of G.stellatus?

    Or all our reticulated gastromyzons in this topic are G.ridens?  http://www.aquariumphoto.dk/index.php/component/joomgallery/fishes/cyprinids-cypriniformes/loaches/gastromyzon-ridens-5

    What do you think?

    Together with these reticulated gastronmyzons in the same store tank there were G.zebrinus with clear color pattern.

    Hi Charles!

    Glad to see you! Smile Thank you. I am sure now that it is G.stellatus with unusual coloration pattern really the same as at your pics. Habitual pattern – white “commas” on the dark background. Sometimes white commas may merge into vertical stripes in the back part of the body. However, reticulated pattern is new to me.

    Thanks all!

    Hi Henri,

    One male of my G.ocellatus raised in a tank from size 3,5 sm TL to 5,0 sm TL. Yes, with age the coloration pattern of gastros changes significantly even if fishes don’t alter their size (or alter it invisibly).

    A result of the counting of pelvic rays – 18. G.stellatus ?

    Thank you!

    Thank you very much Henri and Jim!

    Think you are right and this gastro is G.stellatus.

    Stereotype of G.stellatus in my mind do not permit me to recognize this gastromyzon as G.stellatus even now when I see the real fish. Perhaps, it is color variation of G.stellatus, or this fish with age-related color changes. Photo version of this fish is closer to G.stellatus. It seems to me I see blue in the tail fin. Hope in the main tank I’ll see all signs properly.
    The opinion of Charles would be very interesting.

    I had a few of these, all with a slightly different pattern. > 5 cm SL

    It is great! Did they reach such considerable size in your tank?

    Thank you very much for fine pics and for sharing, Tomas!

    Very nice cute animals.

    The most interesting and that never get bored – is to look how the life appears and how it develops.

    Best wishes!

    Hi Charles! It is well that mormorates are trying to spawn. We will hope for a successful event and wait for it.Smile

    Mine are only chaising each other and that’s all.

    Sewellia marmorata reminds me Beaufortia sp. in a body shape (especially their head). If I’m not mistaken, and they are really close evolutionarily with beaufortias, it is likely to be expected difficulties in breeding of. S.marmorata in the tank like in the case with beaufortias.

    Has someone already got S.marmorata fry in the tank?

    Via the shape of pectoral fins and of the snout.

    “Fences”, but I forgot to look at them.

    Yeah, they are gorgeous fishes! About 7 cm TL. I had to fight against temptation to take a large group of them. Unfortunately, my tank is already overcrowded, so only a pair.
