    Sadly I don’t have any european Cobitis, but three different asian.

    From China/Guangdong


    And maybe from Taiwan, but this is not sure

    Is that where your fish came from Thomas?

    The answer came quickly: Yes, they are from Saigonaquarium

    Sorry Mark, I’ve over read your second question

    I think so, but I’ll ask to confirm that

    Mark, the Lepidocephalus are in a 60cm tank, even the Annamia (is more quarantaine. The Crossostoma is only for photos with them in the tank) The small Cobitis with the smithis have a 100cm tank and the bigger Cobitis and Crossostoma also.

    The small Cobitis are from the dutch wholesaler Ruinemans. Aqua-Global in Germany seems to have the same species on his stocklist. Named Cobitis sinensis (I’m not sure if it’s the right identification) from Taiwan. I’ve get a photo from a shop and they looks very similar to mine. I call them “Cobitis sp.1” with the suffix “Ruinemans 2008”

    vietnam 01 is good, maybe also an advice of “Saigonaquarium 2010” Look: http://saigonaquarium.com/SHOWIMAGES/Homaloptera%20sp.JPG

    Not sure Matt, only Annamia sp. ? Should I mail you a photo?

    So, added a Clip with my small Cobitis with Homaloptera smithi, have fun.

    I wish I could record a funny situation: Two times I’ve watched a small H. smithi who tried to steal a Cobitis a Tubifexworm. Not so funny for the worm, but for me. On each end a loach.

    Thanks!

    Do you think we can confidently add the ‘unknown hillstream’ to the KB as an Annamia sp. then?


    comparing to Marks pics in the KB of A. normani I would say yes. It seems not to be so wrong.

    same as other lepidocephalichthys, last pectoral fin ray is thickened.

    This is Charles/Torsos male:

    I’m wonder why I’m unable to find at least one male between these round about 200 loaches. Unbelieveable! I’ve trained my eyes at my similar big L. thermalis. Such as these chap:

    Thanks!

    Sadly the cf. manipurensis showed above is died today. Yesterday he jumped out of the bucket on the floor, by the other I have also not the best hope, I haven’t seen eat something, always lying around and do nothing but breathing. But the “peacocks” doing very well, always buring for some food /sad.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:(” border=”0″ alt=”sad.gif” />

    At the Moment 7, all are “Community tanks” – small cobitis with Homaloptera smithi, bigger Cobitis with Crossostoma, Lepidocephalichthys thermalis with pangio and so on… This loaches: https://www.seriouslyfish.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=2162 are in a species Tank and maybe they stay in. The feeding is not so easy…

    Thanks Andy, from the annandalei sure, the cf. mani. are at the time quite immobile. Video or pic will be the same… /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    One of the cf. manipurensis has a very pointed head, looks like deformed. What do you mean? other ideas about the determination?

    Today I get five of them, and found also between the ~200 Loaches two Lepidocephalichthys cf. manipurensis and one savona loach.

    Few pics:

    Two annandalei:

    A darker annandalei:

    This could be L. manipurensis (colors fade away) or “only” thermalis?
