Re: Bristlenose Morphs and Breeding

Milton Tan (@Suckermouth) was going to write an article on Bristlenose genetics, but I don't think he ever did. cheers Darrel Wow, the Internet never forgets! Yeah, that article never got written, but I suspect it wouldn't do much better than collecting information online or from the forum. There i...

Re: Two new species of spotted Hypancistrus from the Rio Negro drainage

Thanks Milton. Nicely done. So do you predict that L404 is H. margaritatus? Thanks! Yes, I am pretty sure H. margaritatus is L404. Is it therefore appropriate to make L404 a synonym of H. margaritatus? I'll do that if you think it's correct.] I assume you mean assign L404 as a common name? IIRC tha...

That's one way to put it. I would describe it more as a Hypancistrus inspector with inverted colors.

Re: difference between L029 and L082

L029 is a Leporacanthicus, so it has a few very long upper jaw teeth, hence why they're sometimes called vampire plecos. They should also have a relatively large bump on the back of their head, while in most plecos the back of the head smoothly transitions into the back. Also Leporacanthicus are ki...

Re: What can you tell me about Hemiancistrus guahiborum, L106?

I have never kept them, but they originate from the Orinoco river like Hemiancistrus subviridis, and it turns out they're closely related. I would expect care to be similar.

Re: New Hara

Why is Erethistes and Hara used interchangeably? Peer review should've caught that. Is Erethistes the official genus it's described under because it has the "sp nov" attached to it, even though the paper seems to call it a Hara more often?

Re: What's in a name?

Right you are! Had no idea Kottelat did that. I stopped working on danios in 2012. Reinforces the fact that when people like me, who should know this stuff, fail to pick up this information, then you can't really expect the fish shops too, either. Therefore it pays to do your own research and learn...
