Re: New group of 6 Microglanis iheringi... or are they?

P.S., I submitted a correction to Fishbase.se, to ask them to remove this photo from M. poecilus. Their other photo is accurate. Hopefully this is corrected soon. Wow, FishBase is on the ball! Within hours of my submission, I received emails from two mods there, and they said they've removed the ph...

Re: New group of 6 Microglanis iheringi... or are they?

Today I found one more publication that includes a photo referring to the round-saddled specimens of iheringi-like fish as being Microglanis poecilus . Mariaca Villavicencio, A. L. (2018). Aspectos de ecología trófica de la nutria gigante ( Pteronura brasiliensis ) y su interacción con la actividad ...

Re: Spontaneus fry generation?

Congratulations. If the eggs are on glass, the easiest thing to do is a partial water change - lower the water level below the eggs and scrape them off with a razor blade. You can also do this under water, but if the eggs are old enough to have lost their fresh stickiness, then they'll just sink to ...

Re: Ancistrus cf. cirrhosus spawn

That's okay. I just haven't had the best luck with meds in general, so I go with the old safe ones. As far as your original question, I wouldn't pull a fish out of an ich-contaminated tank because that fish could also have ich. If you're treating the tank, treat everyone. The only time I'd pull any ...

Re: Ancistrus cf. cirrhosus spawn

I would avoid cupramin and just go with something simple like Nox Ich. That, and (if you don't have plants) have almost always worked for me.

No matter what, add an extra airstone.

Good luck.

Hi Ralfieboy,
Petricola "pink"? Never heard of it. Can you get a photo or two when it is adjusted to your tanks? Thanks!

Re: New group of 6 Microglanis iheringi... or are they?

Looking at another relatively recent (2016) publication, it becomes obvious here that the woodgrained Microglanis have also been ID'd as Microglanis poecilus . This is clearly incorrect, but offers one more view of the history of Microglanis confusion around Colombia and Venezuela. It also explains ...

Very nice photos! (we should add some of those to the CLOG page; I'll get to that later - I'm writing an exam now).

Congratulations on getting another. :-)

Re: Are these corydoras elegans or cw044?

Hi Fritske87, Welcome to PlanetCatfish! And what a way you've chosen to dive into the mix, than by trying to ID any of the ambigous Corydoras(ln5) elegans -type corys! :)) I'll admit I'm not great with the elegans group of corys, but yours do look like elegans to me. You offered the alternative of C...

Re: L397 traping female!

Good luck! As to what to do next, myself, I would leave eggs and wigglers with dad until most of their yolk is gone, then move the fry to a net or basket in the parents' tank.

Re: Help IDing wild cory similar to aeneus

Your fish appears to be a lineage 5 (C. elegans group) cory. It may be Corydoras(ln5) nijsseni or one of the C or CW numbers related to it.
