    Hey

    Above is another ‘mystery Garra’. Mad Duff photographed this ‘little terrorist’ in one of my tanks. Always finding trouble, and losing scales as a result, ‘he’ will take on fish much larger than himself.

    As MD agreed this fish looks like Garra rufra yet this is a specie that would appear not to be imported for aquaria?

    Regards David

    OK as groups but only in larger tanks. I’ve got three in my rio 400 and the two larger ones do fight and bully the smaller one a little but nothing bad comes of it. I wouldn’t have 3 in a tank smaller than 4′ though.

    Edit: and is it correct that the males develop red mouthparts when in spawning condition? Do they also get tubercules?

    This ones coming out of breeding condition i think, it;s been alot brighter not long before this photo was taken. You can just make out a little red

    Yeah they do get tebercules.

    Right back on the profiles after a tough few days at work. /thumbs_up.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:thumbsup:” border=”0″ alt=”thumbs_up.gif” /> How well-developed are the males’ tubercules compared to, for example, this one?

    Yup David the biggest one recorded in the description was around that size but I have a sneaking suspicion it can get bigger. Think Mark keeps at least one so if he ever returns from his caravan maybe he’ll know.

    the first time BAS got spilota in they were at least 75mm if not more, Andy can corroborate this if his memory’s working.haha

    I have one Matt, I have seen the cf burmanicus on sale under a few names – half red garra, neon red garra, red tailed garra and just red garra.

    Mine is the same size as my spilota

    This is mine:

    Hey

    Below is a photograph of my lovely Garra goyotola. As you will see ‘his’ best pal was a lovely Synodontis eupterus. These two fish would always dine together and had a joint strategy to protect their feeding area.

    Regards David
