    I picked up a a half dozen of these recently. They are a beautiful, little member of the Otothyrini family. They are a brilliant green with dark vertical stripes and currently are a massive 15mm TL.
    I don’t suppose anyone has ever had these in their care at all?

    Oh man if I still lived in England I would definitely travel for those. And the Opsarius. And the Glyptothorax. Sigh…

    you could always get Duncan to get some for you and keep them until you can get hold of them. That’s if you trust him of course! < {POST_SNAPBACK}>

    Yeah I think there’s more chance of the fish booking their own flights here unfortunately.

    Suitable for small to medium aquariums with plants such as Echinodorus, (e.g. E. horemanii) with intense lighting to aid plant and algae growth.
    Best substrates are sand or fine gravel – pH: 7-7.2 – DH: 10 – Temperature: 22 – 26°C

    During spawning the eggs are laid on the Echinodorus leaves and on the aquarium glass, the fry hatch within 36 – 40 hours, and attach themselves by the mouth to the plant leaves or aquarium glass.

    One strange thing is that fry that are not provided with Echinodorus plants are found to be 20 – 25% slower growing, so it is thought that an essential element in their diet is a component of that plant species or algae that is present only with that plant.
    Fairly fast growing fry – 30 days, 1.5 – 1.8 cm. 60 days, 3.5 – 4 cm.

    For anybody in the UK who is interested another small shipment of these gems arrives next Tuesday at Pier Aquatics in Wigan. Speed is of the essence as word gets out. You may need “Marquess of Queensbury gloves” on to get some.
