Thanks Atmichaels, I'll pick some of that up today and keep you all updated. I found that they were not nearly as relaxed as the Amaralia (behaving like rocks) or the Pseudohemiodon (happily scootering on top of the Amaralia) but rather they would bump into the sides of the bucket until I added some driftwood for them to nuzzle into (before I did that some of them where using the amaralia to hide under!
I can stop keeping catfish whenever I want. I just don't think I'll ever want to do that...

Just had a question about your dosing with 'General cure' @Atmichaels did you use half the dose or what it reccomends?

Close but no cigar. Had a female Tatia sp. "II", Marble Tatia, lay eggs within the last day. Unfortunately they are infertile but another female appears to be gravid. A big thanks to Ted Judy for getting these in! They will get there.

Marc van Arc wrote:Last summer I got inspired by the Dordogne once again, so I'm going to make the tank more open (less wood, some stones, more current). The inhabitants are going to be barbs (Sahyadria denisonii and Dawkinsia filamentosa), combined with Awaous lateristriga gobies. That should give me plenty to see.
After nearly two months I have to say that I'm really pleased with the current set up. Apart from the above mentioned species, I also added Devario pathirana, Stiphodon atropurpureus and Hypeleotris compressa. The only species that was already in the tank with the catfishes, Acantopsis choirorhynchus, is also still around.
75% of the wood has been removed as well as all Java fern and swordplants. Stones and pebbles have been added, as well as some kind of Nymphaea and giant Vallisineria.
Lighting has been changed (different colours) and the water colour is now clear instead of tanned.
As I was unable to find a suitable catfish species, I will leave it like this for the time being. As I said previously, if I want to see catfishes I will have to go to my pond.

Saying goodbye to my beloved Auchenipteridae was indeed hard, but I'm happy for the fishes that they have found a good home. In all honesty I'm also happy for myself, because I have refound my hobby. After all these years of seeing very little to nothing during the day, it's good to see fishes that are apparently unable to disappear, not even when I'm working in the tank. Arjan Kruseman labelled them as "forgiving" and that is exactly what they are. Moreover, they are lively, colourful and hungry!

I'm sorry for the off-topic, but I wanted to make my last PC posting in "my" thread.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful 2016.

Marc

I had originally posted about these back in November, 2014. Bought 6 of these from Ted Judy as Tatia cf. galaxias. The first pic is shortly after arrival. The remainder were taken today of the fish on the right. 3 have grown into what look like intermedia, the other 3 look like the pics below. The spots on the body have completely disappeared and only remain on the tail. SL is 115mm.

Interesting! I bought some very similar fish from Ted (small intermedia-complex Tatia), but they have barely grown at all in the 10 months that I've had them. They started out at about 3cm SL, and now they're still about 3-4cm SL.

Sorry for breaking my promise, but Jeremy, this is mating, not spawning. Once the eggs have been fertilized, the female will spawn in a week or so.

Ageneiosus vittatus?

my best guess anyway and I'm only going off the one Clog picture and the caudal fin appears damaged
I can stop keeping catfish whenever I want. I just don't think I'll ever want to do that...

Agreed! What size is the fish (just the one?) What size tank, and what is it feeding on?
More pics!
Thanks
