Do you have ID's on these? Otherwise we should be putting names to them if possible.

I really like the Pimelodus

Hi
i just don't recall the name


This is not a Loricaria, it is Loricariichthys anus.

Hi,

I´d say:
Loricariichthys anus, Batrochoglanis raninus, Corydoras paleatus, Pimelodus sp. Hypostomus sp.

To me the fish on the second pic looks like a woodcat.

That was my first thought but the dorsal fin did me think it could be a woodcat.


Microglanis cottoides could be a match.

I do believe the picture in M. cottoides is a match, but I also think there is a post about that picture being "not M. cottoides" somewhere - something about the distribution being way out, or some such.

Ill be going back in December.
let me know if you want to go to catch and bring back catfish, cichlids and tetras.
that for many places in the country don't require a heater inside.
save alot of energy!

lodging,permits, food are about 1500-2000 depending how many go.
flights out of LAX are running 900-1300 depending on airlines.

certain fish you bring back can pay for most of your trip.
celidochilus pikes, and hoplias can sell for over $100 each!
