Rarity indeed. Thank you.

There is only one photo in the Cat-eLog and it looks like of a specimen in breeding coloration?

That is very cool indeed. I really don't know much about these fishes at all, so great to see them. I hope to add the pictures to the site, but we just moved house a couple of weeks ago, so a bit short on time for now. I will do it eventually, and, again, great to see the fish.

Anyone (@Silurus) know what characteristics are mostly used to distinguish the species?

Cheers,

Jools

Thanks HH, so I think I can about make out the humeral process from @dmcat 's excellent pics. If for no other reason than to start a trend, it would be good to get a full shot of the anal fins so we could show/count them too.



Cheers,
