Seems to be working out ok with the Ancistrus and the Midnights. "Esmerelda" has a hollow up towards the front that she snugs herself into. When the Midnights start moving around (usually when I drop food in just before I turn out the lights) she usually high-tails it out of there and goes and hides somewhere else. She is smaller than they are. There looks to be plenty of room for the other two females under the log when I ad them.

UPDATE: Ahhh I found out where she goes when the Midnights kick her out, she's in one of the decorations fighting with the one Bumblebee cat lol :-p !

On thursday I will be getting my long awaited first woodcats! A trio of Tatia dunni (@Marc I ordered the dunni look-alikes that you thought were a new species… received normal dunni. still amazing fish) , two adult mystery Tatia (look similar to Tatia brunnea), and a trio of juvenile fish that are suspected to be the same species as the two adult fish.

The ich is definitely gone from my tank as the largest surviving denticetopsis has happily taken up residence behind the filter intake, is eating like a pig, and looks to be perfectly healthy. Nitrates are 0.

I'm looking forward to pictures of your latest assets and of course I hope you'll enjoy the fishes themselves.
Not the most regular woodcats, so a very good find imo.

The fish have arrived. I will post pictures shortly.

I did not use the PVC pipe idea. I tried it, but the dencitetopsis hated it. They were constantly swimming around and looking stressed so I put the driftwood back in.

I don't want to push you and maybe you are very busy, but I am quite curious wrt the pictures of your fishes.
Anyway, I hope they have settled in nicely and are doing alright.

PS: I noticed you haven't visited since the posting I quoted, so I hope you are doing alright as well.

I've taken some videos and pictures, but my tank is very tannin-rich so they didn't turn out too well. I've been very busy, but I'll try to post some pics/vids soon.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to do this long-lived thread, which more and more became a kind of blog over the years.
Given the fact that it seems worn out after nearly nine years, I think it's best to close it.

Regards,
Marc

Seems a shame to close it Marc - although input is (much) less than initially, it's good to have the ability to update/add to the thread as required. I'm always keen to read any new posts when they appear in this thread!

I agree. I check this thread every time a new post appears. Would be a shame to close it.

I have to agree with Martin and Andy. I love this thread and have gotten so much useful and interesting information from it. It would be a shame to see it closed.

Personally, I don't see any reason to lock it. Threads tend to close themselves when interest or inclination run out - I don't think this should be any exception and I certainly wouldn't want anyone newly enthusiastic about auchenipterids to be closed out. Part of the thing that makes PlanetCatfish not Facebook is that old threads can be found and resurrected.

The challenge is for all remaining woodcat enthusiasts that are "PC members" to carry the torch.

I agree with what Jools 100% this thread inspired me to get into Centromochlus and am looking forward to when I can blog about my specimens and succesess. I'm hoping to reproduce Centromochlus reticulatus and make them available to aquarist in my province (Maybe even throught out Canada!).

Ive forged a torch, just waiting on the flame!

I can stop keeping catfish whenever I want. I just don't think I'll ever want to do that...

That is correct Andy. The four Tatia were well taken care of on the way home.

I think they're the same thing as Wrasse has. They've been in the UK a couple of times, I think the consensus is that they're a n. sp.

I am not sure we've got them on the site.
