    this guy, Foerschichthys flavipinnis, came in as a contaminant together with the Barbus fasciolatus. Size is only 1.5-2cm TL.

    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Just curious. Do Lampeyes eat mosquito larvaes? And do they need air pumps to survive?
