Ancistrus dolichopterus is now online, March is hopefully coming soon from Balaji (much anticipated) so does anyone wish to send me an "April"?

Hemiodontichthys acipenserinus would be interesting... Or if you don't want 3 loricariids in a row, maybe Amaralia hypsiura .

Both are fish I've not kept which doesn't preclude me from writing about them but I usually feature cats I've kept. They are both very good suggestions though. I write up the Banjo in a few weeks if nothing else is forthcoming.

Thanks,

I just wanted to thank especially HH and also James, Balaji and Birger for the CotM's to date this year. My 14-21 hours a week that I typically spend on the site on average has been limited to 7 or less for the past year or so. A CotM takes me most of that in a week to do, so that kind of help is hugely appreciated and means I have some time to fix (typically small) bugs and add other content to the site. With a new baby arriving in August, I don't see much of a change for a while, but I remain optimistic and indeed certain that what I can do with the site will pick up again.

Cheers,

Jools

Customer:Not much of a cheese shop really, is it?
Shopkeeper:Finest in the district, sir.
Customer:And what leads you to that conclusion?
Shopkeeper:Well, it's so clean.
Customer:It's certainly uncontaminated by cheese.

If your looking for suggestions, could someone please write a COTM on Hemiancistrus guahiborum? It's strangely absent from past COTMs, given that it's the third most popular* Hemiancistrus listed on this site, based upon recorded keepers. :-)

Thanks, Eric

*(third out of three total Hemiancistrus species currently on record here as being kept, but that's beside the point ;-))

L397 I'm really a bit biased here but it's becoming a popular fish but there's not much info in a standard Google search. More profile based?
Thanks Teresa

I've written up Leiarius marmoratus (for Viktor!) and L106 should be finished in a day or three.
