labeled as "amur" or "bumble bee catfish"

Hi there: Was wondering what kind of catfish this guy really is. This always has been on my mind on IDing this catfish. IT's been up for sale for a quite while locally. http://images.craigslist.org/3k93pf3la5O05W65P0b6lbcb0423c4ffc1b10.jpg my doubt about it being a "amur" is that its slope of the he...

Re: Trade my plecos/catfish N. Burbs Chicagoland area

UPDATE: all species listed are still available. What I'm looking for is: Reasonable cash offers. Mature L204s, I also have someone else locally looking for a mature male L204 and if you want cold hard cash, I'll refer you to him or can just buy him myself outright, but I do prefer to get rid of some...

Saul:

Thanks for the reply! I'm sure if it does happen in the wild then this isn't going to be a big deal.

Cheers

Re: Question about L066 "variants"

Natural hybridization, that could be a possiblity. Would be interesting to see the L046xL201 offspring and what is recessive/dominant genes ha. Saul: great for you to chime in and was hoping you were going to :d Do you import any of the hypans species that usually have that usual band around their n...

Re: 29G biocube suggestions?

Thanks guys! I'll keep one for now and keep easy to grow plants that's doesn't demand intensive lighting. I'll stick with the 10,000k if its more crisp as I like that type of lighting myself.

Really need to reduce the number of hypans right now Have L260 WC male L270 reverse trio, believe one still have ways to go. Other two are mature and ready to be bred right now. one or two pairs of L066, this is really still in limbo due to 100% ID L239 L235 female L340 male L226 group is a possibli...

Re: 29G biocube suggestions?

Maybe I should hold out and wait til later on in the Fall to see the prices on the new stands, but a shelf would do for now. Probably would be plugging it in by the end of next week as I really just can't wait to plug it in and see how insane it looks in the room I'm planning on putting it in. I'll ...

Re: Safe to ship catfish in breather bags?

I think the breather bags are more flexible or am I dreaming? Tho I've not had a seller ship me a catfish or any other fish in a breather bag, as I think they're more pricy per bag than a plastic one. But I have brought a batch of breather bags and sold the fish at the swap meets in the past, it wor...

Wow, maybe I should just bite the bullet and get the older stands once I find them up for sale as I really liked the glass doors.

Re: suggestions 4 smaller pleco that doesn't stay in hiding

I'm not sure about Royals as when I had them they were the average pleco I'll spot everyday in my tank. But the clowns I never see only once in a while. For the most outgoing plecos- it depends on the species and how many of that species or others you got in that tank- its really the combination as ...

Re: 29G biocube suggestions?

I can't bring myself to order a pricy stand for that amount of money when the tank itself was only a fraction of that price. Think I'll just find something else to use instead and just wait til the alternative stand comes around. Now its L046 or one of the L066 pair once I get the stand situation fi...

Re: Question about L066 "variants"

I had a suspection at first when I got her, but when I got the L260 male next to her its a difference in the markings. The L260 is more thinner and finer in their coloring comparison. Her lines are too thick and far to few in between to pass as a L260. She when put next to the L260 WC male, huge dif...
