    Cobitis: stolen photo again, we don’t know how the fish looks like. I am curious because I have the Taiwan kind and asaik there is no Taiwan importing right now….

    (Specifically, here is the place his photo came from:
    http://www.basilaqua.com.cn/photo-s/china%20fish/Prot/Cobitis%20sinensis.jpg
    )

    (And I would not mind seeing a photo of his Tweedees…. and again, not his photo…. 🙁 ).

    Sewellia: the price changed too? New supplier? What happened to the previous stock (too fast to sell)?

    I just saw, and purchased S02/03 for the first time yesterday. What an interesting species. So far they seem more outgoing than my other sewellia (lineolata and spotted). They had come in to the shop the day before I got them and were already feeding on algae wafers which is a good sign.

    Well, anyone wants to opine on this chap?

    it may be lineolata, since the tank has a “breeding” group of them, but this fry does not look like lineolata to me (and to a couple of other people I asked).
    it may be Sew0203, but they produce a bunch ime… and they also looked differently and I think grew faster.
    it may be Sew04,,, there is a trio of them
    and of course, it may be a frankenfish too…

    the thing is perhaps 0.5″, today I saw it clinging to the glass for the first time.

    Agreed it doesn’t look like S. lineolata – is it the same fish as posted above?

    Probably not, there are two younger fries that match S.lineolata better, the one above is probably one of them.

    Best wait on this and let me take photos just in case… I now see another fry changing to these large chunks…

    Meanwhile, no animal was harmed in producing this clip, behold: Sewellia sp. squirrel:

    Here are some pics of my biggest S. elongata with a TL of 9.8cm.

    This big “adults” come in a shipment this january.

    You can clearly see the yellow bordered pectorals and ventrals and the brawny head.

    The last two pics show a smaller one for comparision.

    About eighty fry in this five hundred liter tank, its a mix of lineolatas and spotted but most of them are lineolata.
    No chance to get them out.
    Many of them show very variable markings.
