Doesn't like Kool-Aid
Nice thread! Sticky worthy!
So far C. habrosus is one of my favourite fish. These guys have a lot of spunk and are not in the least bit shy (at least in my experience).jhoetzl said:Corydoras hastatus and pygmaeus are cool.
I personally like habrosus for a nano (>=5g thought), followed by pygmaeus.
Well, as I'm not a native English speaker I have to rely on other sources, mainly the net. I was kind of hoping that you English speakers would supply the common names. I did edit in some names from Fishbase and MIFF...alphacat said:One other thing: are there common [English] names for any of these guys? Something I've noticed is that you Finns have common names for fish English-speakers have never even seen...
Actually, not to rant but just to clarify, the 'species name' refers to both the genus and the specific epithet, most commonly incorrectly refered to as the 'species name'. A species name is comprised of two parts -the genus (the first part) and the specific epithet (the second part). I do not mean to rant but people throw around scientific verbage constantly and i just wanted to let people know of this distinction - even people who are well trained in the biological sciences misuse these terms.Daniel*Swords said:P.S. Btw. the species name is not capitalised - only family name is.
Thanks agdavis for clearing that up! All very logical now that you mention it! After this, it'll be that much more easier for me to try to pass as a biologist. :hihi:agdavis said:the 'species name' refers to both the genus and the specific epithet, most commonly incorrectly refered to as the 'species name'.
havent kept them, but they look awsome and stay small(1.5"). From what Ive read, they dont require the ammount of work most killis require for breeding I.E. removing the eggs for a set ammount of time.Guys! I think we are missing all the nice killis!! :icon_eek:
Anyone keep those to give us a starting point?
