    you could always get Duncan to get some for you and keep them until you can get hold of them. That’s if you trust him of course! <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

    Oh man if I still lived in England I would definitely travel for those. And the Opsarius. And the Glyptothorax. Sigh…

    Hi Guys
    these are magnificent looking fish with an incredibly well developed brood care routine.
    They are on their second spawn in a tank with Geophagus sp. Tapajos Red Head, Hemiodus Gracilis and some Panaque Cochliodon (blue eyed panaque) and have still managed after 11 days free swimming to have about 50 fry left at 3mm tl.
    The first spawn are doing well (all 1000 of them) and are up to 3cm tl. Eating us out of house and home.
    Mick is right though because my pic doesn’t do them justice.

    Manual
    fantastic information you’ve supplied and a PDF too.
    My Spanish is rusty and I’ve become lazy in its use so the PDF will give me an incentive to pull my finger out.
    I will come back to you if I need any more information and thank you for the offer. You given me good ideas to work on.

    Nothing to report here either unfortunately. I had a group of 6 in a decent-sized tank in my bedroom at university. Aside from the occasional bit of chasing I never saw anything like what I’d call spawning behaviour. I did find that they hardly ever jump if the surface is covered in floating plants though.

    I do recall seeing a spawning report many moons ago. Nobody I knew. All I can remember is the that the eggs floated

    This is a really useful list; have you kept/are keeping any of these galilee?

    Perhaps Galilee thought this was an April Fools question!

    I have to say that I laughed out loud when I read the appraisal of Herr Bleher’s alleged offences. Herr Bleher for all sorts of reasons has had a reputation for flying close to the wind in terms of his attitude to the indigenous fauna of the countries that he has visited over the past 4 decades. It surprises me not, that he has been collared under new legislative powers the Brazilian Government have implemented to protect their biodiversity.
    Whether he is guilty or not of the allegations he will, I’m sure, be proven to be guilty of the worse offence of ignorance of the law and complacency about the wind of change regarding Brazilian fauna. One has to remember that this man spent most of his informative years in South America with his mum http://www.ibama.gov.br/2008/08/pesquisado…ra-sem-licenca/

    Paul, did you ever find that article?

    Sorry Matt, no joy so far. Will keep searching.
    Was at Chester Zoo 2 weeks ago and looked at their fry and the breeding group. They have plans to have another go in more controlled conditions and believe that you need a couple of dozen mature fish to get a spawning. Their thoughts, from the observations, are that they spawn in shoals with all the fish taking part.
    We will have a go once ours are mature.

    Is it Pungu maclareni Paul?

    No Matt, they are S. Linnellii. However I have just returned from a location (secret squirrel stuff) where I have seen two other stunning species of Borombis in very fine fettle.
