Homaloptera cf. leonardi Vietnam

We were able to import once more hillstream loaches from Vietnam. Instead of the expected Annamia normai we received another species. The determination is a very tricky thing. The most coincidences are to the species Homaloptera leonardi. Especially the scale-less zone between pectoral and ventral fins is said to be very typical for H. leonardi. It looks at least on our photos (we had no losses and refuse to preserve fish for determination) that this feature is present in our new fish. If they are identical with H. leonardi they should attain a maximum length of about 6.5 cm.
 
One very special thing is observable in some of our new fish: they show a magnificent, bright green coloration. It is unknown to us whether this represents sexual differences or if these green colors are only a temporary phenomenon.
 
Generally speaking, hillstream loaches should be kept in an aquarium that imitates a fast running brook. There should be a good current in the tank. The water temperature should be between 22 and 24°C. One should offer several types of gravel, sand and stone (up to round river pebbles of the size of a large man´s fist) so that the fish can choose. Homaloptera are micropredators and feed on a wide variety of live and frozen food items. Well acclimatized specimens often also accept dried food (best: granulates), but one should not do any feeding experiments in the phase of settling, because uneaten food will pollute the water heavily.
 
For our customers: the fish have code 421579 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!
