    Curious to hear how this trip went. Did you find any Salaria fluviatilis?  How is the captive breeding program going?  Is any DNA testing being performed as part of the program?

    Well, you’re right. The taxonomy is so fluid for these guys, which genus is it today might be the even better question.

    Thanks for your reply. I will move them out of the tank. Very disappointing.

    I have 6 dwarf chain loaches (Ambastaia sidthimunki ) in a community tank with dwarf honey gouramis, blue paradise fish, and Duboulayi rainbowfish.  A magazine article had indicated that the dwarf chain loaches wouldn’t be as prone to be eye biters as their larger congeners.  However, several days ago one of the rainbowfish was missing an eye, then two days later I found it dead with both eyes missing. Now it looks like a second rainbowfish has an eye missing.

    Is this a temporary phase, or do I have to remove the dwarf chain loaches to a species only tank?  This will mean that I will rehome them. They are delightful fish, but I’m not willing to expose other species to harm like this.  Sharing of experience raising these fish will be much appreciated.
