I have almost resurrected this myself a few times. I am glad someone has finally done it.
I am currently keeping:
1. Tatia intermedia breeding group of 6 (1M 5F) + ~200 fry/juveniles
2. Tatia gyrina group of 6 (2M, 4F)
3. Tatia strigata New group 6-7 individuals sexes unknown in qt
4. Tatia aff. simplex group of 6 juveniles that haven't matured yet.
5. Tatia galaxias new group 6 individuals sexes unknown in qt
6. Duringlanis altae new group 4 individuals sexes unknown in qt
7. Duringlanis perugie new group 4 individuals sexes unknown in qt
8. Duringlanis romani new group 8 individuals sexes unknown in qt
9. Asterophysus batrachus 3 individuals (1M 2F)
10. Tympanopleura cryptica 4 individuals sexes unknown in qt
Note: Most of these species are in qt and have just been received and I have not had the time to sex all of them and even count some.
I really want to know what species people keep and breed. This is gonna be my favorite thread.
