Re: Orange Zebra Otocinclus Hypoptopoma sp. Peru “Orange”

By a long time I meant months, in which case we can be sure the shop is looking after them well or they would not be there, sorry I should have been more specific. That's a nice article on Nannoptopoma , we have that species listed here as Nannoptopoma sp`peru_white` , first import was a private col...

Re: Couple new super red ancistrus

Not my "cup of tea" but these are nice pics and the fishes look healthy. Once they are a bit bigger we could use one or two of them for the catelog?

Are super red not all red and calico the ones with, well, calico markings? I am not an expert on fancy commons!

Cheers,

Re: Orange Zebra Otocinclus Hypoptopoma sp. Peru “Orange”

As Eric says, good idea to buy fishes that have been in the LFS for a long time. You're going to need plenty of algaefied surfaces (fresh wood / bark also good). Corys and Ember tetras a good mix mind you.

Re: Catfish fry grow better in total darkness

Indeed. Darkness is just one big shelter but not the best one? I do remember commercial pleco breeders talking about spawning species and rearing them in darkness - but those had plenty of shelter too.

Re: Corydoras bilineatus

You know, this error (and it is) predates the forum, so before 2003. I think either Yann or Silurus ID'ed the originals. Likely about 1999 from the images. How Kim's one was ID'ed as such I don't know, his IDs are good. What taxon should have the common name "san juan"? For sure, we need it somewher...

Re: Synodontis njassae?

Looks like a solid ID to me. I considered the bigger one might be Synodontis zambezensis but the shape of the adipose fin and the humeral process seems to indicate it's just not a very colourful individual?

Re: Corydoras ln8sc4 identification

Indeed, and there are a couple of synonyms (C. grafi is one, can't remember the other(s)) for that future researcher to consider as well. Reminds me I need to fix a couple of images in the wrong place on the site. I'll do that and also beef up both species' ID information (they do mention this diffe...

Pretty sure not native in Ireland, all of Scandanavia etc. too? Is it not Danube or Rhine basin it's origin range?

Good stuff, I have added the type locality notes feature. Would you like to "guinea pig it" :-) via the usual data submission process? I've tested it, but good to know I've not missed something.

Re: More Callichthyinae than I can imagine? (But no loricariids)

It doesn't. That is unless you take "east" to mean "downriver", then it does work and Nova Olinda do Norte is the locality? Think it would be OK to do that once I add the explanation field.

Re: More Callichthyinae than I can imagine? (But no loricariids)

Working on adding those new fields now, one other question - I'm looking at "Rio Madeira, about 200 miles east of 62°20'W, Amazonas State, Brazil." for Farlowella smithi. Do you think that's 200 miles downriver (northeast) or the point the river cross 200 miles east line of latitude?

Re: ID Elegans group cories

Its like they tried to be pygmies lol There's some truth in that. Fishes, generally, evolve into smaller species, and when you look at the faces of Corydoras you can begin to see how they split out into different lineages. The one that this is most obvious in (for me) is Corydoras nijsseni it's hal...

Re: What are the chances

Yes, I wondered how long it would take for someone to notice and post. :-) Although we must thank @craft for his design. I think it's O. vittatus though.
