Re: New to cories and forum

Hi Lurcher, I tend to overstock my tanks, so I would consider putting 15-20 corys in a tank that size, but probably I would step it down a bit. I would recommend limiting yourself to 15 or so. Very likely, the corys you get will be subadults or small adults. If so, then as they grow your tank will b...

Re: Trachelyichthys exilis spawn :-)

2020-09-15: somewhere between 47-52 eggs found. (1 day interval) For the last 3-4 days, I've been feeding them daily with frozen "mini bloodworms" (aSan Francisco Bay Brand product). I guess the woodcats like it. The number is a range because I was distracted near the end and lost count. It's a sha...

Hello everyone....hope all are well. Jus found another 3 synodontis fry in another female. I was almost ready to give up on hoping to find catfish fry recently..as ive had about 3 batches of cichlid eggs without any. Congratulations! Glad you didn't give up. Keep going and keep sharing. Thanks, Eric

Re: Does everybody knows fish-jokes?

Is it just my impression, or are big pharma companies coming here to find the names for their next new drugs? Cases in point, specific epithets in the genus Microglanis:
  • berbixae
  • leniceae
  • pataxo
  • xerente

Re: Rhyacoglanis paranensis pics 2 and 3 don't belong

To me, the head on the mystery fish looks just too wide and flat compared to the other photo, and to that of the other species with photos.

Re: Rhyacoglanis paranensis pics 2 and 3 don't belong

Glad you can get more pics. What stands out to me, even with forced perspective of the face shot, is that snout looks wrong relative to eyes, and from the overhead shot, I'm looking at the small grain of the pectoral spine serrations - much smaller than those of the real R. paranensis.

Idiot dad, and the lady shown outside his home, have started spawning in a closed-ended pleco cave instead of in open-at-both-ends pipes/tubes.

Rhyacoglanis paranensis pics 2 and 3 don't belong

Hi Jools,

Photos 2 and 3 for Rhyacoglanis paranensis are mis-ID'd. I just posted an actual photo of the species from the original publication. Nothing similar at all. Maybe a Pseudopimelodus type? IDK.
