Eng­lish: Inter­pre­ta­tion of the syn­op­sis (von Ben­jamin Wilden, trans­lated by Dorothee Jöllenbeck-​Pfeffel)

We thank all those who par­tic­i­pated in the Census.

Gen­eral:

In this autumm cen­sus 49 per­sons have par­tic­i­pated. This is almost 10 per­sons less than in the spring cen­sus. Among them 12 reports of hav­ing no fish.

This time we can say with cer­tainty, that that we no longer have all species in our stock.

P. deiss­neri has been lost and the pres­ence of P.gunawani, as explained in the last cen­sus, can be discussed.

Fur­ther on I wish to ask every breeder to please remem­ber to add the trad­ing name but at the same time also write your own thoughts about that.

All trade — fish which could not be allo­cated, are mostly of the „Bin­tan–form“. This surely may be right in many cases and bet­ter than to accept var­i­ous species names as applic­a­ble for granted.

P. gunawani is exactly such a case. At this present time it is impos­si­ble for us to say with cer­tainty that either P. gunawani, or P. bin­tan are present, — since P. bin­tan with a true local­ity has not been reported for the last many years

Fur­theron some very pop­u­lar species, like P.linkei, P. quin­decim or P. nagyi are very fre­quent and con­stant in stock, while oth­ers, like P.phoenicurus are, owing to imports, rep­re­sented quite numerous.

But not only this species was able to be spread more widely. Also other species, which had been very poorly rep­re­sented in spring, has been bred and dis­trib­uted. Just at this point the great merit of the inter­na­tional meet­ing is clear.

Spe­cial:

P. alfredi is fur­theron not fre­quent, but there is a slight upward trend to be seen. P. allani is obvi­ously one of these species, which has ben­e­fited from the meet­ing and is now rep­re­sented at sig­nif­i­cant more members.

P. anjun­ga­nen­sis is fur­theronrel­a­tively weak in stock, spe­cially com­pared with the past years.

P. bin­tan seems again to be one of the most numeros species. But the indi­cated sources show clearly why; fish from the P.bintan-harveyi group are rel­a­tively good avail­able in trade. Whether it is or not is dif­fi­cult to clar­ify with­out loca­tion. The pic­ture is dif­fer­ent con­cern­ing species with loca­tions.But these are just avail­able with a few mem­bers, but these keep the fish num­bers fairly constant.

P. deiss­neri is lost.

P. fil­a­men­to­sus is con­stant, like the past years. I would con­sider this species as not very endan­gered.Also the form „Ampah“ exists just at a few hold­ers, but constant.

P. gunawani exists with three mem­bers (all fish from trade). As already gen­er­ally dis­cussed, a state­ment con­cern­ing this species is difficult.

P. har­veyi has fin­ished his down­trend, also thanks to Ham­burg and can be con­sid­ered as secured..

P. linkei fur­ther­more is very secured. Many fish and off­spring have been reported.

P. nagyi can be con­sid­ered as secured. Con­cern­ing the loca­tion vari­antsthe num­ber of hold­ers and fish stayed constant.

P. opal­lios is good as it hasn´t been for years. Although there are still a few ani­mals, but they have been sig­nif­i­cant bred and distributed.

P. ornat­i­cauda has been reported sig­nif­i­cant more often as in spring, owing to new imports.Nev­er­the­less this species must be regarded as sen­si­tive.

P. pahuen­sis fur­theron is not numeros in stock. But more off­spring give hope.

P. palu­di­cola has been reported less than in last cen­sus. This species has to be regarded as highly endangered.

P. parvu­lus has been bred a bit and dis­trib­uted. A sligly upward trendcan be seen.

P. phoeni­cu­rus is fur­theron good in stock, owed to the import of Aquar­ium Diet­zen­bach. The reported off­spring give hope for a suc­cess­ful conservation.

P. quin­decim seems to be best rep­re­sented by absolute num­bers in stock, this species has devel­oped too very good.

P. rub­ri­mon­tis also was dis­trib­uted to more members.


P. suma­tranus fur­theron is very crit­i­cal. Few breed­ers and no off­spring remains a problem.

P. tweedie has remained rel­a­tively well dis­trib­uted. All in all the stock is behav­ing constant.

Addi­tional we have a new form „Parenggean“ which untill now is only to be found with one member
