That's wonderful!

For me that causes the best feeling in keeping fish (or any other pet) when they reward all the work we do to keep them how they like it by giving us babies. Even if raising babies can cause headaches.
Regards.

I love my Corys! (*)

Slowly, but surely, I am adding these wonderful pictures. I think I've downloaded up to part 28 (or so), so will add those and then go again with the remainder.

Hi @Haakon,

I'm uncertain on a few of the recent ones - can you please help with some background information or confirmation. First off, what is the undernoted one - the filename was Ancistrus tamboensis.

Hey Jools,

Thanks for the kind words! This Ancistrus was sent to me from Aquarium Glaser, hence the very wrong filename. They sell them as A.tamboensis, but it seems they are actually A.triradiatus. Glaser say they often get them mixed with another Ancistrus species in shipments from Paraguay.

Hi Haakon,

Ok, so don't think they are Ancistrus sp`rio_paraguay`, so the perhaps A. cirrhosus? A. triradiatus is a northern species, no? Not sure, these things are tricky!

Sorry, my bad - A.triradiatus was a severe typo 🤪 I meant to write A.pirareta! Also, there is a picture in the Evers & Seidel Wels Atlas II of this species, where they simply call it Ancistrus sp. "Paraguay". This is obviously very easy to mix up with Ancistrus sp`rio_paraguay`, which is a different species.
