Re: Two new Rhinodoras

Thanks for posting Eric, nice to see the key linked into all those species entries which will be helpful for many folks who encounter some of these species fairly regularly.

Cheers,

Re: My Loricariidae pictures

Slowly, but surely, I am adding these wonderful pictures. I think I've downloaded up to part 28 (or so), so will add those and then go again with the remainder.

Re: The true meaning of “natalis” in the name Ameiurus natalis

It would be natalieae as fictional Natalie is a girl. Natalie the name comes from Christmas anyway, the natal bit being rooted in the Latin for birth (Birth of Jesus presumably in this case).

Re: hello! please new ID....

Pattern around the eyes and also spots ahead of the eyes as opposed to stripes point to the ID I provided. It's a pretty baby fish, I think farm raised, so it would be interesting to see a few more pictures as it grows.

Re: Have on-mouse-over pop-up photos gotten larger? If so, thanks!

Addendum, perhaps the biggest change will be on big species thumbnail pages such as the infinite l-numbers page:

Re: Have on-mouse-over pop-up photos gotten larger? If so, thanks!

On a genus CLOG page, it works for me on the "most kept species" list, but not if I hover over the names of the thumbnails. That leaves the viewer with only the tiny thumbnail. It would be good (especially for anyone with visual impairments) if on-mouse-over pop-up pics worked there too. (In additi...

Fixed it up, it simply doesn't display a particular size if there is no data for it.

Could I add L191 as an ID for the Panaque? Maybe L226 for the last tiger.

Breeding Acanthodoras

Been years since I've kept them, but I noticed @Noel has published a spawning report but with not much detail in it. Really interested to learn more about it if you could share?

Re: Creating ideal conditions for L260

You'd probably need to use airstones with those other fishes in there which do not like current at all (killis and apistos). The disadvantage of airstones is you need a noisy air pump and they do not heat the water. Power filters are quieter and do heat the water. That said, you've got two power fil...

Re: Auchenoglanis sp. “Giraffe Cat" Volta Wild Caught 5" ??

It's a shame to see a lack of tolerance / trolling behaviour in our friendly forum, but sure it's just an isolated incident.

Have locked it as I think this thread has run its course.
