Re: Corydoras/Brochis and leaves ?

I keep Corydoras rabauti in a 40 breeder with a pretty heavy amount of IAL. They seem to do well. I find they'll often be a few hanging out under a leaf if it provides shade, and I do think that the darker water increases activity versus a bright tank. I have never seen them eat the leaf litter, but...

Re: A tiny interesting black catfish

We recently got about a dozen fish that look similar to this at my LFS, labelled as "Asian Red Tail Catfish" but they are this colour, leading me to believe they are actually Hemibagrus wyckii . I do not know if this fish is, however, as the forehead seems too elevated and I have not seen ...

Re: Cory ID - Sold as C. aeneus

Did the store have more? Might be a good idea to get them and make your group even more splendid. They did! They had a whole tank full, not yet for sale (fortunately I knew the guy). Today's a holiday, but perhaps tomorrow I will go back and pick up another 12. So definitely not Corydoras rabauti ?...

Re: Cory ID - Sold as C. aeneus

So they are Corydoras zygatus? That's awesome! And no, I got 12 for $40 CAD. Is that a good price?

Cory ID - Sold as C. aeneus

Picked a group of 12 of these up for $40 CAD. Sold as Corydoras aeneus.

To me, they look like Corydoras zygatus.

Can someone please ID them for me?

Re: Fisher's Woodcats

On day two, they're extremely active. Bit shy if I put a hand in the tank, but other than that totally relaxed - they even investigate a finger on the glass. Eating well, too.

I did manage to get 2 males and 2 females, so expect a breeding project to start up within 6 months - 1 year.

Are these fish available somehow? AFAIK, even catching them is illegal due to their endangered status.

Fisher's Woodcats

Hello, Just yesterday I was at a new LFS, and it looks like someone dropped off 6 Fisher's Woodcats. I picked up 4 of them, and I'm hoping for a pair out of the bunch to attempt breeding. I would have gotten all 6, but at $60 a pop it was already a rather expensive purchase I wasn't accounting on. M...

Re: Mystus leucophasis advice

I would say I have, yes. I know they are bred in large ponds in Asia, but I haven't managed to find any information regarding that. I have seen absolutely no reports of anything aside from the vague claim that they are bred in Asia for food.

Why, have you seen something I have not?

With them courting, what does this mean? I haven't seen any reports of breeding, and I doubt I am lucky enough to be the first person to do so!

Re: Mystus leucophasis advice

Right, brief update on the sick/wounded fish. He's been moved to a 10 gallon quarantine tank with a towel over it to keep it dark. Dosed Seachem Neoplex to help clear up some infection visible in his mouth and fins. He's eating, suspected he'll make a full recovery and then I will sell him off as he...

Mystus leucophasis Journal

So, an interesting development. I've been watching the tank for a couple hours to see how the smallest AUSD (pictured in the gif) is doing, and I've noticed that the other two (similarly sized male and female I believe) are exhibiting what to me appears to be courtship behaviour. While chasing does ...

Re: Mystus leucophasis advice

So, a bit of a problem in the 125 gallon today. I noticed that my smallest AUSD, which is definitely the most picked on, has some white patches around the mouth. I cannot tell if it's an injury or mouth rot, so I'm hoping someone here can help me ID it - and treat it, whatever the case may be. Here'...
