Re: What is this auchenipterus?

Auchenipterus menezesi is from this area, but we don't have photos of it, and the original description includes only black and white photos of preserved fish, so not very helpful. That said, the original description of A. menezesi states that this species resembles Auchenipterus nuchalis (but A. nu...

I'm having trouble uploading photos here from my phone but I have a couple of photos and a video on my insta http://instagram.com/hilltopaquariumfish Looking at this photo, I suspect the fish will color up normally over time, or close to it.

Thanks HH. I've submitted a correction. The new coordinates are -22.9235278, -44.3141667.

Re: Fungal treatment

All the stuff you tried is what I would have tried. The only other thing to do which has been recommended to me is to lift the fish out of water and apply the methylene blue with a Q-tip directly to the wound.

Good luck,
Eric

I am sorry, I do not know the answer to your question, but what is odontile growth? Odontodes are small tooth-like projections growing out of the body of fish. They look like short stiff, sometimes slightly curled pins covering the posterior body, some fins, or even beside the operculum. They typic...

@Shane, Is the Mary Power in Lee's letter "Mary Eleanor Power" of freshwater trophic structures biology? If so, she's right beside me now (well, about 60 minutes away).

Re: Two Corydoras species

Hi Mataj,

The first photo is Corydoras(Ln8sc4) sp(c102) - a beautiful fish that resembles Corydoras(Ln9) trilineatus but has a straight snout. The other photo appears to be Corydoras(Ln9) brevirostris.

Re: Panda-ish Corydoras, but which one?

Based only on those two photos, I don't think they're leucistic at all, but rather washed out. Get them in a tank with neutral colored and good food, then let them settle in. I suspect they might darken significantly. Whether or not they're pandas, I'm not sure, but time and less stress should tell....

Hi Chuunofish,

I've never used these but a friend of mine has a roller system on a discus (If I recall correctly) tank and he seems quite happy with it.

I agree the bigger fish looks male. I suspect the smaller fish might be male also, but I'm not very confident.

Neat. Yeah, they will get darker and lighter with mood, water conditions, and tank decor (and age too, I have seen for other species).

Re: What are this litle guys ?

Hi GuffyValentine,

Really neat discovery in your tank. I don't think these are L134 (Peckoltia compta). Rather, I think you have one of the species of black striped Hypancistrus, maybe (but don't hold me to it) Hypancistrus furunculus, or a similar species.

Good luck with them.

Cheers, Eric
