It looks like you had a (tentative?) identification for the purple ones as Centromochlus reticulatus - and a brief internet search suggests that might be true. I am an amateur at fish identification though ...

In any case, I hope the purple ones are C. reticulatus and I'm incredibly excited about next week. Hopefully they become available!

I like creepy things, vines included.

You can try contacting Rare Aquatics in the UK. I saw them post the same ones before but can't remember what they listed them as and I can't find the post now.

They are not reticulatus, wrong area and wrong size they are close though!! I will likely list them as cf. reticulatus until i get a proper id (which has not been achieveddespite international emails being sent and planet catfish thread)


EDIT: Planet catfish experts say they are indeed reticulatus This is good news!!!

How big will those parotocinclus sp. 3 top out at?

Nice. It seems the parotocinclus might be a good substitute for the Hisonotus leucofrenatus I've been looking for, but can't seem to find. How many of the species 3 did you get in?

They have yet to be id's formerly- working on that.

I know I got in Hypoptopoma gulare (jumbo oto), Hypoptopoma sp. orange (formerly Nannoptopoma, also called orange zebra), Parotocinclus sp. 3, and another Hypoptopoma which is about 2" that I am working on getting an id. I did get soem more cocama too, but they and the orange had a bit of a rough ride and will need more time than the others.

The pyrrhulina (splash tetras), on the other hand, and the two Centromochlus species look awesome and are about ready to go (along with teh parotocinclus and gulare)
