Re: Brochis Multiradiatus , health issue ?

I had the same thing happen to my multiradiatus. Lost them all. I suspect their large size requires more care than I'm used to giving for other corys.

I hope your remaining fish do well.

Re: Some colourful elegans

Their mood and color is profoundly affected by environmental and health factors. Healthy little fish you got there.

Re: L128 Sexing

Are all 3 pics the same fish? From the dorsal pic, I would have said male. But from the ventral pics, I'm inclined towards female. Sorry, not very helpful.

Re: What Corydoras are these?

I agree on the latter two. Can you get better pics of the first? Could be leopardus, which has smaller marks than C102.

Re: ID my plec

I've seen king tigers with washed out colors, but I can't tell if your fish is a king tiger or not from this photo. Can you get pics of the entire body, from side and above?

Sorry, Eric

Re: Planning major overhaul of tank this week, remove plecos or not?

My L397 grew from 3cm-4cm TL to spawning in 13 months. I think your fish should be sexable by next spring.

Hi @Bas Pels,

I am unclear on your intent. Are you saying that you believe these fish are interspecific hybrids?

Re: Planning major overhaul of tank this week, remove plecos or not?

Anyway I am simply a bit afraid of moving the plecos and how to do it, should I just net them up and place them in a bucket for photo session and will they be fine in there for an hour two? Should I place them in a larger container with spongefilter/airstone? Maybe it's best to just let them be in ...

Re: Sturisomatichthys panamense?!?

Might your fish be misidentified? Maybe you have a species smaller than Sturisomatichthys panamensis . For example, Sturisomatichthys aureus reaches only 15cm SL. That said, some fish breed at a very small size if well cared for. I have rainbow cichlids that started breeding at 3cm. Unbelievable. Ch...

Congratulations! Good for you. 4" long, about 10cm. Is that SL or TL?

Re: Fishes near Iquitos

With the help of a savvy local fisherman, who took us several places along the Nanay, we seined the river about 5 times, about 4 hours on the water. Caught lots of Loricariinae (mostly what the locals call "common loricaria," but I suspect are more of the Limatulichthys ), one of which is ...

That video was from 3 weeks ago. There was another performance two days ago, broadcast live on Facebook. I was in town for this one; I missed my chance. :(
