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

    Now the monster size S. elongata are also available here in Austria.
    I saw them yesterday some of them are really incredibly big.
    As you say Matt the price is a little bit crazy!!

    Even bigger than your adults Manuel? Looks like you’ve done a brilliant job with them, by the way!

    Oh yes, I bought the two largest they are about 10cm long! But real beauties.
    I’ve never seen hillstreams in such a good condition.
    My wholesaler has no price tags at his tanks, I found out the price only at the checkout.

    Hello, Menu and all fans of loaches. Many thanks for the help. It is possible to ask you still a question on sevellia?
    In March 2010 has bought four S. speciosa and three S.lineolata. All of them lived in one small aquarium of 60 liters. In June, 2010 has found out fry. But now, when they have grown, they aren’t absolutely similar on S. speciosa or S.lineolata. How do you think, what is the fish? Here their photos. Many thanks for the help!

    Looks like a small S. speciosa for me Artem.
    I think these two species can not cross each other.
    They are however very similar in behavior and the spawning looks absolutely identical like the spawning sequence of S. lineolata.

    Hi, Menu!
    I’ve read on this site that these two species do not interbreed with each other, but the strange colors of the body of the 1,5 year old Sewellia struck me as odd. Therefore, I decided once again to clarify.Thanks for the help.

    If it’s 1.5 years old that patterning is quite aberrant though right?

    The patterning change a bit when they get bigger.
    When you compare Charles, Artems and my S. speciosa, you can see that the patterning and the primary color varies a bit.
    Probably due to the various catch areas.?

    To me it looks more like lineolata, but I don’t keep speciosa.

    The wave-like markings are really a bit strange.
    Can you post a few new images of these fish Artem?

    Hi, I will try to make a new video with this fish, and her brothers and sisters, who have normal color S.speciosa.
    the first photo – strange fry, on the second picture – the fight S.speciosa and S.lineolata. The last photo is the normal fry with his mom.

    I want to remind that there were only 7 fry, only 4 fry live now, only one of them has such a strange figure, the others have normal color.

    It really does look like a cross in that pic.

    Hi all! Here are three clips:
    – My fry, with unusual pattern, the age of which is already 1.5 years,
    – S.speciosas
    – and new fry, who was born in the same tank in January of this year.

    Really hard to say.
    I hope they can not cross, the hybrids may be infertile.?
