I love my Tatia perugaie.
Good fish are spawned and raised in Burlington.

C. schultzi are available from Frank's Aquarium right now. I'd get them but I am pressed for space and money.

I was eyeing those as well. They sure are stunning little fish, especially as adults!

I have a trio of Centromochlus schultzi, still tempted to add more! Much more active during daylight than some of the larger auchenipterids, stunning fish.
I've also kept Tatia gyrina - MatsP had these from me if memory serves?
Haven't kept Spinipterus acsi but do have 8 Spinipterus sp(1) - very, very nocturnal, since moving them to a larger, heavily planted and bogwood filled tank, have never seen them!
Tetranematichthys wallacei -- have kept a male of this species before, sadly lost it in a tank wipe-out and my current stock doesn't work with these, though they are really interesting fish to keep.
Not kept Centromochlus reticulatus, but suspect these are like the other Centromochlus species, as would be Tatia strigata? I do have a trio of Tatia dunni - again, very nocturnal, rarely see these.
Trachycorystes sp(1) - too big for my tanks!
Ageneiosus polystictus - again, too big for my tank, though prefer Ageneiosus magoi which I think I may have kept many years ago, long before I knew of PC!
Good list! I like the look of Glanidium leopardum too!

Now I'm even more tempted to get some, considering they're out during the day!

Anything particularly difficult about keeping them?

Mine took a few days to start feeding, and obviously their habits will depend on the tank inhabitants. Make sure they are not with anything that is too competitive for food, but they will take most frozen foods, and will come out with subdued lighting - surface plants will help!
The ones I have are already 3-4" so a good size, not sure how smaller ones would behave.

What PH do you keep them in? Also, what tankmates (if any) are with them?

I'll look out for those.
