    I’m guessing someone’s paying top dollar for those adults somewhere. Japan perhaps?

    It’s going to be interesting to see how your fish develop guys!

    Quick question. Which are the most/least dominant Sewellia species in a community situation and where do the others rank compared to them? Which fight the hardest/least among themselves?

    Also, is the ‘belly-to-belly’ sparring part of territorial or hierarchical behaviour?

    Sorry i can’t help with your questions Matt. I have s. lineolata alone and these are also alone. I’m not sure the difference between territorial & hierarchical battles. Seems like they battle for the best territory & the winner is the boss!

    The larger elongata (1 5/8″) are getting a little darker.

    Thanks Jim, those are starting to look really good! I asked because I kept a small group of S. lineolata for a few months before leaving the UK which were pretty peaceful among themselves and a single spotted specimen (last one in the shop) which gave the Garra flavatra sharing its tank murder!

    my ranking
    amongst themselves: speciosa (I never seee two on the same stone, pecafully), lineolata, spotted, spp 02-04
    in a mixed group: no problem for spp 02-04 to dominate (speciosa kept only in separated tank); in a 500 lt tank: lineolata dominates without problems b. kweichowensis and pseudogastromyzon sp

    Hi Artem,
    I also think that they are S. speciosa, the patterning is unmistakable.
    Did you doubt it??

    Here some pics of mine:

    you can clearly see the different head shape and the tubercules on the head and pelvic fins

    Now my biggest S. elongata look exactly like K. Udomritthiruj big specimens.
    S. elongata grow faster than other Sewellia species, now the biggest one have about 7,5cm.
    But unfortunately still no signs of spawning or fry.

    Thats the same fish. November 2010
