    It’s time to dig out the best Pangio-thread ever! Cool

    Today I sorted out 4 “unique” Pangio of a shipment of normal Pangio. First I’ve noticed the different patterning of the caudale. Some types of shelfordii has similar markings on the tailfin but I never seen it in such a clear form.

    The next things that reminds me to the shelfordii group is that the eye is on a light zone ( like P. shelfordii or P. incognito), not on a dark bar like the most striped pangio have.

    A pair (male is the upper one)

     

    But the body markings/saddles doesn’t looks like the shelfordii group.

     

    The four are luckily two pairs (checked it in a white bucket from top) and the male have above the eye a dark zone, the females not. No sexual dimorphism I guess, only a note ;)

    The two males, the lower one has a small light line through the dark zone above the eye. At the upper one this aerea is complete dark.

    As you can see, The females don’t have this.

     

    Now it’s your turn, what do you think?

    Agree it looks like a P. shelfordii-group fish but it has very well-defined markings – beautiful! Great to see you both around the place by the way. :)

    Lips, barbels, nasaltubes and pectorals of a male.

    So what do we do with this one in terms of the KB?

    Pangio sp. ‘PAN06’ With a hint to P. shelfordii and maybe P. incognito.

    Sadly two died and I have only a pair.

    I have two of these and they were sold to me as Pangio kuhlii. They are both very thin, and look a little more pink / orange than in the photos. I have only ever seen stripey or black / brown Kuhlis, and the behaviour of these two loaches is different from my stripey Kuhlis. It took me 20 mins of shooting to get these photos because they wouldn’t stay still at all. Are they albino P. kuhlii? Why are they both acting crazy? I wonder if they are a different species that requiring a lower temperature or something? The only ones I could find that look similar are Pangio pangia, Pangio elongata, and Pangio oblonga. Can anyone tell me if they are one of these, or something else altogether?

    Also, how can I subscribe to this topic?

    Hi, they look like extremely thin P. oblonga, but get some food into them and we should be able to offer a more definitive id.
