Re: Unknown Microglanis

If you want to tie them in with aquarium identifications then they are M. iheringi. Whether the fish in the hobby are the true iheringi is yet to be resolved, but for your purposes you can call them iheringi.

Re: Which Auchenipterids are being kept by PC members?

My pair of Otorongos only came out to feed on a night, the acsi were a bit more daring.

Thanks Birger.

Hopefully we can see the fish when it has put some more size on and it may add to the debate.

Re: David Sands' Catfishes of the World Question

Re: Lake Tanganyika Synodontis

A fishkeeper brought them in and insisted he got them from wild. There was a group of large grandiops and 2 of these mixed in. The smaller one did have the black triangles in the fins.

Lake Tanganyika Synodontis

These were purchased yesterday on behalf of a friend. They are supposed to be wild caught. The first one looks like a semi-adult S. tanganaicae , the last one a female lucipinnis ? I'm now worried that the first one might be a hybrid though they are supposed to be wild caught. http://i143.photobucke...

Re: Longnose Corydoras & their...aggression?

If by longnose you mean what I would call hognosed (the acutus group etc) then the only ones Ive kept are sarareensis. The males were very aggressive with each other and would use their bristly pectoral fin spines and cheeks to spar with each other.

Re: Which Auchenipterids are being kept by PC members?

An update. The egges were fertile (pic taken showing fry developing). I rescued some and put them in a breeding net. The ones left in the tank were eaten by the female. She then decided to jump into the breeding net in the night and eat the others! x(
