    thanks for that, Eric’s was one of the first points I headed to as I knew he had some because he took some to Scandinavia last year.

    this is by way of a information post for UK members. Currently probably the best shop in the NW has a shipment of Notropis chrosomus in. They are extremely reasonably priced and sexable. Flying out fast, but there was still a significant number when I looked in the tank last night.

    I got a bunch of type 1 last week.
    no hybrids, not treated with hormons to render infertile, females and males.
    pablitos pics show type 2, Thomas certainly had a hybrid, only males. it’s a pity these are going around in europe

    How to differentiate the two types Charles? Do they refer to different wild populations or ornamental strains?

    I think that there are different wild populations. the problems with the differentiation come from the keeping in aquarium. seems to have become a battle of arguments in Germany amongst breeders, sometimes with religious furor.
    for infos see here

    some breeders pretend that there is only one form, changing colours when spawning. I would say, that s right for the already mixed colour forms.
    my breeder says that I`ve got the type 1, as stated in the link too.

    Thanks Charles, I’ll ask an American friend about this.
