Scleromystax barbatus, Corydoras paleatus & Black C. Schultzei breeding tank ///
So this is what happens when you browse planet catfish in the evenings and people post up about the cool catfish they just got. After I saw their pics of this unique fish I set out on getting them in one of my tank. Through the help of a member here I was put in contact with a breeder and within a few weeks had them at my home.
This is nothing special. Actually it was a tank that was setup to grow out my L183 fry but after watching them flourish in the tank they were born in I saw no need to transfer then anywhere else. This left that tank un used and in the Barbatus went. Here is the PC species profile on Scleromystax barbatus
for some back ground info.
As of right now there are 8 in the tank ranging from about .5" to 1.5" and unless all of the larger ones I got are all females, aren't showing the sexual dimorphism that shows the males as a stunningly marked specimen and the females as a peppered beauty that looks like the pics that will follow.
