    The description of H. ogilviei says it has “a transverse patch from the dorsal fin base narrowing ventrally towards the origin of the pelvic fin. A second such patch across the back mid-way between the dorsal and caudal fins and extending towards the anal fin origin. A third transverse patch around the caudal base and extending on to the lower lobe of that fin. A dorsal patch between the head and dorsal fin”.

    hi matt
    the description is very close to “my” specimen. as the specimen is very young the patches could change
    but the pics on loaches show different – thinner – markings.

    Thomas are the scales on your fish ridged/keeled? Are you able to get a side-on image or good quality one of the pectoral fins?

    Charles, hmm…let’s see how it looks in a few months then.

    re. post #29

    [Hi Thomas do you have any idea where this fish was imported from, or what it came in with?]

    Got one recently that looks very similar(same to me) to that pic, was labeled “from Borneo” and was mixed with H.smithie/tweedie.

    Hi Wolfram,

    The fish in the pic was also between smithis and one large zollingeri. In another shipment (I think two years later or so) of tweedie(?) were three of them. I don’t know where it come from.

    I’m now guessing Peninsular Malaysia…

    And the unknown Homaloptera could be H. leonardi? If I compared with Gerhard Otts pics at fishbase.org I would say it makes sense

    all together I’ve 4 Homaloptera now that come from 3 different shipments

    shipment 1 H.orthogoniata from unknown

    shipment 2 1 H. tweedie (more likely than smithie) from Malaysia

    shipment 3 1 like Thomas’ and another taller tweedie (99% same as 2nd shipment) from Borneo

    whenever I find time I load some pic’s of them

    Those H.tweedies have a very entertaining personality, at least the one from shipment 2, it’s not shy at all. The one like on Thomas’ pic is much more hiding. The H. orthog. is between those re shyness, but took time to “warm up”. So far (about one month now) no aggression between them at all. They are together with one Stiphodon and one Syciopterus and some Threadfin-rainbow-girls

    You just reminded me that one still needs adding to the profile Jim (have it stored). H. smithi yes?
