Com­men­ta­tion of syn­op­sis and god­fa­thers (ger­man by Ben­jamin Wilden)

We thank every­body who took part in the census!

Gen­eral

44 per­sons took part in the spring cen­sus 2016. This is again fewer than in the last Census.

We are aware that we see a down­trend in the par­tic­i­pa­tion to the Census.

7 of the 44 reports are „no fish“. That is fewer than last time.

At this place I would like to thank every­body to have reported many trader names and import infor­ma­tion. So we are able, as in the last years, to dis­cuss about the exis­tence of all species, but based on the fact that for exam­ple P.deissneri or P. guna­vani has been reported each just by one per­son, with the com­mer­cial designation.

Whether we now can say that we have all species in our stock and whether thit is impor­tant for the indi­vid­ual, may every­body decide for him/​herself.

Fur­theron some very pop­u­lar species as P. linkei, P. quin­decim or P. nagi are very fre­quent and very con­stant in stock. Also P. phoeni­cu­rus did not break down in stock as often hap­pens after imports, but shows, that also such fish can be held for a longer time. We hope that this will con­tinue thit way and will be a pos­i­tive exam­ple. On the other side some species, for exam­ple P.opallios or P. palu­di­cola, which ben­e­fited from the Ham­burg meet­ing, had been less reported now.

Spe­cific

P. alfredi stays con­stant, com­pared to the last cen­sus. Two new loca­tion names have been reported.

P. allani also is con­stant, which is a clear improve­ment as com­pared with the last years.

P. anjun­ga­nen­sis seems to have lev­eled off to a low level. Still we will have to keep this in mind after the neg­a­tive trend in the last years.

P. bin­tan seems to be fur­theron one of the most fre­quent spezies. But the num­ber of the keep­ers has been reduced to half. Trade fish have been reported fewer, and loca­tion forms have been reported just by one member.

P. deiss­neri has been reported just by one member.

P. fil­a­meno­sus has stayed rel­a­tively con­stant, in rela­tion to mem­bers and num­bers. But the form „Ampah“ exist just at one member.

P. gunawani has also been reported only by one mem­ber as trade fish.

P. har­veyi is con­stant and can be con­sid­ered as safe.

P. linkei fur­theron is very safe. There have been reported more fish and off­spring. Also there had been reported another loca­tion form.

P. nagyi can be regarded as save and stayed constant.

P. opal­lios was in autumn as good as long time before never had been, but now has reduced again to two hold­ers. Surely one of the losers of this census.

P. ornat­i­cauda has been reported only by half as many mem­bers as in autumn. We hope that keep­ers who didn’t take part in the cen­sus could keep their stock con­stant. The species is still precarious.

P. pahuen­sis is not fre­quent. But since last cen­sus quite constant.

P. palu­di­cola only has been reported by one member!

P. parvu­lus had been reported by fewer mem­bers than before. Many off­spring give hope.

P. phoeni­cu­rus had been min­i­mal fewer reported than before, we hope the high num­ber of keep­ers can be kept constant.

P. quin­decim is most fre­quent in absolute num­ber, but the num­ber of mem­bers are a bit fewer, but we can regard it as safe.

P. rub­ri­mon­tis could main­tain the upward trend.

P. suma­tranus is fur­theron in dan­ger. Few keep­ers and no offspring.

P. tweed­iei had been reported min­i­mal fewer than in autumn, but has not to be con­sid­ered as endan­gered. Also a new loca­tion form has been added.

Fur­theron the form „Parenggean“ has been still reported just by one member.
