Anybody have access to this? Reproduction and embryogenesis of fish from the São Francisco and Grande River basins

Hi, All. There's a new book chapter out which I'd like to read and our university doesn't have access rights. Do any of you have access? Thanks in advance, Eric Rizzo, E., & Bazzoli, N. (2020). Reproduction and embryogenesis. In Biology and Physiology of Freshwater Neotropical Fish (pp. 287-313). Ac...

Re: Repeat spawning of Dekeyseria picta L052

6-day-old fry from spawn #1. I have at least 20, probably more, surviving fry from this first spawn.

The other two egg masses are developing well. No signs of fungused or dead eggs so far.

Re: Complete mitochondrial genome of Brochis multiradiatus

I don't mind them publishing papers that nobody will read, but when put this crappy data on public databases, it really bothers me. This one , apparently "Tatia intermedia", is actually a goldfish!

Re: Complete mitochondrial genome of Brochis multiradiatus

Hi Darrel, Although I reported the C. agassizii paper recently, there are several of these papers to have come out recently which I've ignored to report for just the reasons you mention here and elsewhere. I should publish like this, just to pad my resume. If my administration will fall for it, mayb...

Re: Cory "nana" ID assistance please

Will measure them tomorrow to me they are at least an inch long Actual size is not critical. I was just trying to figure out how mature they are. I've got some napoensis that are about 2" long TL. Very distinctive color patterns, even for females, as shown on the CLOG page. Yours look similar but n...

Re: Cory "nana" ID assistance please

Yes, I believe you have two species there. Since size is not evident, I don't know if the striped fish are actually Corydoras(ln5) napoensis, but I think they are. Not sure about the others, but not merely female napoensis.

Cheers, Eric

By the looks could be C napoensis, a better picture would be much appreciated
I agree with Mexnotex. They do look like Corydoras(ln5) napoensis. Please take more photos when the fish are out of the bags to confirm.

Cheers, Eric

Re: Big & Little Plecos

Hi danielpblue, You didn't mention how many of each you want. But if only a few, then in terms of sheer tank space, you should be fine as long as the tank is not some crazy narrow tall dimensional tank. As for dispositions of the two species, that I don't know because I've never kept Peckoltia sabaj...

Something funny with wishlist reporting?

Hi Jools, Trivial glitch, I suspect: Today I noticed that many members are reported to have 1817 species in their wish lists. I presume this is a glitch, perhaps a maximum value. The fact that it might be a maximum is not what's eye-catching, but rather that so many people, many of them not otherwis...

Re: Repeat spawning of Dekeyseria picta L052

Today I added another fry basket to the tank so that I could isolate the eggs from the existing 5-day-old fry. I moved the egg mass from spawn #3 into the new basket and I also pulled the eggs of spawn #2 out of dad's cave and added them to the same basket. I count a minimum of 79 eggs in the egg ma...

Re: air distribution

I can't provide answers, but I have a friend running two pumps on the same line (I believe it's a loop), but their pumps are the same size. I don't know if there are risks to running a stronger pump with a significantly weaker one (I infer your older pump has a much lower output). Also, if I recall ...

Re: Repeat spawning of Dekeyseria picta L052

This third egg mass appears to be unattended, so I used a turkey baster to suck it from between the rocks and I moved it to the basket containing the three day old fry (for lack of an alternative place). I count a minimum of 64 eggs.

Re: 13 spawns in 6 weeks: It doesn't get much better than this (for me, anyway... oh wait, it does-17 spawns in 8 weeks)

Two more Dekeyseria picta L052 spawns in the last 24 hours or so ( here ), and at least one more L397 spawn in the last week. And when I include the baby Microsynodontis sp(1) I found earlier this week (reported here ; although, to be fair, that baby is probably from a spawn several months ago), I'm...

Re: Repeat spawning of Dekeyseria picta L052

This is getting crazy. While randomly looking around the tank with last night's overnight L052 spawn (spawn #2 within 14 days of spawn #1), lo and behold, there between the rock crevices I see another intact egg mass (spawn #3), this one laid on the bare tank floor!
