andy and waterfaller1, thanks for the kind reactions!
waterfaller1, i got 3 Stiphodon atropurpureus who are living in the rekord 60 tank. size: 60x30x30, about 45 liters. temp. 24-26 celsius, pH:7, daily easycarbo, weekly profito. The're about 5 to 6 cm long and they can stick like an oto. on the aquariumglas, they can dig holes like my rhino's(former rhinogobius wui) or disapear under the fine sand like floanders(achirus achirus). They eat everything:dryfood,algaetablets,shrimppallets and also bloodworms,artemia's,dapnia's(fresh and deepfrozen).
As always (just the first time i respond here ) Beautiful pictures of beutiful fish Glenn Out here we see even more of your catfish but the one that always cracks me up is the one of your "platvis" (excuse spelling) standing up against that plant
Flounder indeed, platvis is the Dutch name for the group, as tong is the correct translation of flounder.
besides, after following the link, more species of sweet water flounders might excist. I found in the middle of Uruguay, in the Rio Tacuarembó, near the village Ansina, flounders at 5 cm. The ocean was over 400 km away, as the R tacuarembo is a side rover of the R uruguay, wich waters into the Rio de la Plata. The R tacuarembó was very fast moving
A bit hard to consider this as the same species mentioned in Mats link
Thanks for the reactions! The 2 Achirus achirus in the rio 240 tank are almost 3 years old and about 10 cm long, i don't think they'll grow any longer... Catsandfish, you've found this great site! welcome! Andy, i got 4 tanks, but most catfish are swimming in the rio 240 tank.
