Re: A day in the life of Planet

Around late autumn/fall last year I went through all of these taxonomic weirdos and managed to sort them all out. Some are bad interpretation of good data, some are contentious and some are technically correct but hard to accept. Finally, I set-up a robot to go check these each month and see what ch...

Re: Something funny with wishlist reporting?

They've now all reset and so as google (or another search engine) indexes each species page, it will also then index the wishes for that species which will in turn update the counters. In the meantime, if a human visits those pages, the "total wishes" counter / total will update ahead of a robot goi...

Re: Keeping Fish is never Quite easy

Especially given the single point of failure is often the fishkeeper. At least in my case. ;-)

Re: Something funny with wishlist reporting?

Long story, but in short this will correct itself over the next few days. I propose to leave this thread open for a few days to come back and check the page.

I had not reset a counter which just built up over time after an upgrade to some of the internal platform that enables the site.

“Amazon Reophilic Fish Fauna: Threatened and Unknown Natural Heritage”

Posted by Leandro Sousa a little earlier today. During a scientific expedition on the Tocantins River, some very interesting fish species were recorded in the dives and are included in this video. They are mainly fish that live in current areas (reophilic) and associated with the rocky substrate. Th...

Re: Lineages

Hi All,

Just moved this topic into the Corys section as it seems to be a bit more about corys / hybridisation now than it is about taxonomy etc.

The larger fishes pictured above look like captive-bred Synodontis grandiops.

Re: RO water

pH 6.8 is a little high for the species but it seems a fine margin to have that big an effect. Anyway, Lars has bred more plecos than me, so I can't say it's a bad idea - just not heard that before (in plecos) hence my curiosity. So, you can't go much better than Darrel's advice, I know it's summer ...

Re: RO water

Going back to the first post, can you tell us more about the eggs that hatch prematurely. This is kind of new to me?

Re: Browser does not support WebGL, the OES_texture_float extension

That's helpful, thanks Chris. The issue is it's in code I don't control - from memory, it's used by the reCapatcha code.

To re-iterate - if anyone has the error, put " chrome://gpu/ " in your browser and post the outcome here?

Cheers!

Re: Browser does not support WebGL, the OES_texture_float extension

Just noting that while this still occurs, using a different browser stack appears to work around the issue.

Here is a pic of the one I know was labelled synodontis hybrid at the LFS..had so much personality and I know I can stick it into a tank without any other synos after quarantine. Lots of character in this one
This looks like Synodontis lucipinnis.

Wow, that's like ESP (P=Pleco)! I think something and it happens.

Thanks Eric, interesting to see this one too.

And we don't even have a picture of H. hemiurus in the catelog! This looks like a great initial step, will read it at the weekend.
