    Yes, another group of this species are outside in my mothers garden at 5°C at the moment. I have too much of them, so one group (8) is in my tank, and one group (10) is in a cement bucket (ø 60cm). Both works fine.

    As I know the “german” Cobitis spawns only one times a year – late spring early summer. The spawning happens in shallow water.

    My idea is to wait a few days (or weeks) and then beginning to reduce the water level and start to heat the tank a little bit.

    Another idea is: Do nothing and hoping for the best… /unsure.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:unsure:” border=”0″ alt=”unsure.gif” />

    smithi and tweediei. Till last year I’ve had one cf. yunnanensis. Some years ago I’ve kept confuzona (I think) and zollingeri.

    We got. HH says it looks like P. shelfordii to him, but the shelfordii I have kept a few times ago looks not so similar.

    But I don’t know how widespread and variabel P. shelfordii really is. At least I would say you are right with the shelfordii group. That’s great

    Sounds good, but I have no idea. There are so much Pangios I have never seen

    Hi Matt, Here you can see the dorsal surface.


    No line on the top as I know it from P. superba. But you are right, in the Kottelat & Lim paper (1993) the P. alternans looks not similar to my Pangio.


    Pic is from Kottelat & Lim 1993

    At the time they are small, ~4cm

    Two other pics. Two other pics. The one in the front looks a bit similar to this: http://www.loaches.com/species-index/pangio-alternans

    This looks more similar to the one in the first post:

    Yes Matt, the two from china are possibly undescribed. I don’t find a chinese cobitis that match with mine. Compared with C. macrostigma, arenae, granoei, dolichorhynchus, melanoleuca, lutheri, sinensis and rarus. The first come in trade as C. chinensis (not valid and no synonym), the second comes with the chinensis as blind passenger.
