    My new sewellias. They are sold as Sewellia-butterfly (Sewellia breviventralis). The picture on the back is very different from big spots to reticulate pattern. I think they all belong to one species. Size of mine is 6,5-7 sm TL.

    Sew23

    The name “Sewellia breviventralis” has been used since they were first imported about 5 years ago… not correct.
    Usually the shipment also includes Sew04.

    Nice fish, congratulations!

    Very nice Charles! Approximately how old are the fish in the pics?

    Perfect, thanks Charles.

    Have all Sewellia species available in the trade been bred now?

    No Matt.

    SEW04 (lost mine due to a technical problem) and probably SEW02 missing. S. elongata and S. breviventralis (only few widely spred specimen) as well. S. albisurea seems uncertain to have been exported in larger numbers.

    Bred: S. lineolata, S. sp SEW01, S. speciosa, S. sp SEW03

    Cheers Charles

    One evening I saw S. elongata spawn.

    But I never found any fry in the community tank.

    Make a short video.

    Ok great, thanks Charles.

    Nice video Manuel! There looks to be a clear size difference between the male and female?

    They look small, young? Have you got some recently Manuel?

    It is the same like the other sewellia types, females are usually bigger and have a rounder body shape.

    The fish in the short video are some of the first elongata shipment in november 2010.

    The first shipment include very small and young fish and some of them are still small, about 6cm.

    The big ones first come in january 2012. I think there were only two shipments of this species.

    I was hoping there was a new batch in circulation. I only have one very large, fat female left. :(

    The problem with S. elongata is, that they are very delicate about the water temperature.

    Last jear we have a very hot summer here in Austria, the water temperature went up to 26 degrees. 

    Thats too much for this species, unfortunately I lost some of mine.

    The other Sewellia species have absolutly no problems up to 27 degrees. (For a short-term)

    In my opinion It’s better to let them in their natural environment.

    Charles, thanks for reviving this.

    I need to run to work…. but ask you one question that will help : do you have photos of the babies / juveniles from your earlier breeding?

    (I would like to compare them with the photos of my new juveniles… somehow they feel different — I did not take many photos the first time I bred them and not sure where they are — and the adults feel differently too.)
