Re: Plecos and discus

If you return the water to the tank from the FX6 with a spray bar or two (pointed straight down so doesn't generate much current) then you'll get a decent amount of DO. In that case you have a wider range of plecos you can keep. That said, truly, you should not really have any algae of note in a dis...

Re: Plecos and discus

Did a search and the last post I found on this was back from 2010, so looking for some more recent info :) Discus and Plecos haven't changed much since 2010. What, specifically, are you looking to find out? Which species of ~1000 plecos is a good start. You could also read the gold nugget article o...

Re: Redefining Pareuchiloglanis

If I could get a PDF of this work I will update the cat-eLog, or once it appears on a CoF update I will then eventually catch this.

Thanks for posting,

Re: Are most petricola for sale actually lucipinnis?

To the topic question, yes, they are. It makes sense if you think about it. The whole reason the name "dwarf petricola" came into being was to describe the species of fish in the hobby that was like a petricola, but smaller. While 2006, when S. lucipinnis was described, seems a long time o...

Re: Two new Lepthoplosternum

If you happened to acquire the 2005 Reis paper on this while posting the above, I see I don't have it. Would be good to get a copy as these are species we may need to ID in our aquariums,

cheers,

Re: Purchased as Dwarf Petricola

Almost certainly S. lucipinnis due to the fact this is the bred species available at this small size. Because the white colouration is variable and changes with age also, I'd wait for them to grow and then the described characteristics can tell them apart along with head spot size.

Re: Pleco in Cichlidae?

Well, this is odd. It seems L133 (Scobinancistrus?) or some version of it was renamed as a species of Apisto and I (presumably) didn't change or remove the common names. I've done that now, could take up to 24 hours to fix on AR.

Cheers,

Re: Tips for new pleco breeding project thanks.

How about Peckoltia compta or, if that's a bit too tricky, whatever species of Hypancistrus takes your fancy?

Re: Fishes near Iquitos

The pattern is different, but to me, they look very similar morphologically just from the pics posted. That's a decent-sized Batrochoglanis!

Re: S.Negriventris and S.Contracta are unhappy, what can I do better?

The fish don't sound unhappy. With these species, if they're happy you won't see them much unless in large shoals. They will come out for food and the rest of the time they will hide. You've done well finding 3 S. contractus - there are usually only a few found per 100 of the other species. Feel fre...
