Re: Catfish-Only Community Tank

Hi elderpav, Welcome to PlanetCatfish, and thanks for sharing about your tank. As far as the fish your keeping, I have a thought: If your upside-down cats are Synodontis nigriventris , then I'd point out that they, as well as your Asian glass catfish Kryptopterus vitreolus and your Otocinclus , are ...

Re: Ageneiosus marmoratus synonym of A. inermis

The page is reassigned to Noturus maydeni. I input new temperatures, but have no info on pH. Hopefully that cleared to "unset."

Re: Citations?

They all work. I like the first choice, in that, if you're looking on the CLOG for that species, then you get all the history of valid names and all links associated. The others may be too specific or general, as they certainly don't return everything on any one species, but they also are limited mo...

Re: Ageneiosus marmoratus synonym of A. inermis

Looks good Eric, maybe zero out the size, but otherwise the "shell entry" is good to rename. :-BD I did set size to zero, yes. Did it not go through? No, I see it did not. Also, I had changed the pH and temp range values to "unset", and I blanked out the typed distribution field...

Re: Citations?

I would add another against for adding all the info to the CLOG: i didn't interpret Narelle's request to be that the info is copied from COF, but rather that we update citations as they come out (e.g., transferring citations from the forum when relevant to taxonomy). We wouldn't be taking COF data b...

Re: Citations?

The latest taxonomic info comes from catalog of fishes, we don't use fishbase. I might be able to add a link to that source per species IF that's what you were looking for? Cheers, Jools Narelle, I think you are asking for a bibliography field to be added to CLOG pages, so that additional citations...

Re: Ageneiosus marmoratus synonym of A. inermis

All moves and deletions made ... successfully I believe. After moving keepers, sightings, wishes, and photos, plus adjusting temp and distribution to expand to encompass both original entries, then I stripped the remaining specific info from the marmoratus CLOG page. Once that stripping (CLOG update...

Re: Ageneiosus marmoratus synonym of A. inermis

Catalog of Fishes lists it in synonymy with Ageneiosus inermis . I don't usually make immediate changes to names but prefer to wait to see if the changes get reversed or contested soon after. But since it's been 4 years since the publication of Ribeiro et al.'s paper, I suppose its standing as a syn...

I concur with Jools. It's an old male clown pleco.

Re: Any plecos I could keep a small group of in a 15 gallon aquarium?

That sounds hopeful, although I am pretty confident you know what you are doing and I dont! I am browsing some right now and l134 might be an option? I do know where I might be able to get them so that's a plus. On the other hand L260 is one of the plecos on my short list. Suppose ill have some tim...

Re: Any plecos I could keep a small group of in a 15 gallon aquarium?

I had a breeding group of 7 adult Panaqolus maccus (plus often over 50 juvies growing out) in a 15gal tank (24" long) for years. Currently I'm using that same tank for a breeding group of 7 Ancistrus sp`wabenmuster` (and fry), which are much larger than clow plecos. Yes they are all poop machin...

Re: L104 Clown Pleco - 120 litre (29g US)

That fish is little. Did you buy it at a store or is a breeder selling them? If from a breeder, that works, but I'm a bit concerned if pet stores are importing fish that small. I'm not commenting on its size with regard to any concern for it in personal care (in your tank), but rather its welfare in...
