We thank every­body for tak­ing part in the census.

In gen­eral

In this spring cen­sus 42 mem­bers took part. This is min­i­mal less than in the last cen­sus and in pro­por­tion to our mem­ber­ship again a very low rate. After some diskus­sions and our sur­vey results in the forum we decided that it is not the fault of miss­ing reminders

There­fore we will fur­ther on ask twice – once at the begin­ning and once at the end of the cen­sus period – to take part in the census.

I would like to thank you for the reports with mainly very detailed infor­ma­tions about your stock. I thank you espe­cially also for the 11 “neg­a­tive reports”, and ask every­body else to show your inter­est in the next cen­sus, even with­out stock!

Fur­ther on some very pop­u­lar species like P.linkei, P.quindecim and P. phoeni­cu­rus are very fre­quent and con­stant in our stock. On the other side the num­ber of fish all in all is shrinking.

Some species, espe­cially species with known local­ity have just been reported by a few owners.

P.gunawani has van­ished from our stock, P. deiss­neri has been reported with­out local­ity. But we are hope­ful, because one of our mem­bers could catch real P. deiss­neri on Bangka.


P. alfredi seems, com­pared to the last cen­sus, has low­ered in num­bers. The local­ity „Sibu“ has no more been reported.

P. allani can be declared as bee­ing nearly secured, there is no dif­fer­ence to the last census.

P. anjun­ga­nen­sis has been reported now more often. But it can­not be con­sid­ered as secured.

P. bin­tan fur­ther on seems to be one of the most fre­quent species, and has been reported more often because of new imports. The form „Desa pud­ding Besar“ has not been reported this time, but the own­ers didn ́t par­tic­i­pate in this census.

P. deiss­neri ́s sit­u­a­tion is not cleared at the moment.

P. fil­a­men­to­sus has been more often reported than in the last cen­sus. Also the high num­bers of off­spring are steady. But the form „Ampah“ ist fur­ther on only present at one member.

P. gunawani is no more in stock.
P. har­veyi has been reported in about the same number.

But the fish from trade have van­ished.
P. linkei is fur­ther on very secured. There have been reported many fish and offspring.

P. nagyi has been reported def­i­nitely more sel­dom than last time. We have to mon­i­tor the development!

P. opal­lios has not changed very much and is fur­ther on reported by two mem­bers ! P. ornat­i­cauda is shrink­ing more and more, there have been just reported 3 fish! P. pahuen­sis has been reported a bit fewer than in autumn.

P. palu­di­cola has again just been reported by one mem­ber!
P. parvu­lus
has devel­oped very pos­i­tively and has been reported by sev­eral owners.

Fur­ther on there has been added a local­ity „Bukit Batu“.

P. phoeni­cu­rus is nearly con­stant con­cern­ing the own­ers, but the num­ber of fish is shrinking.

P. quin­decim is reported by sig­nif­i­cant fewer own­ers and with a smaller num­ber of fish. But we can con­sider this species any­way as secured.

P. rub­ri­mon­tis is again shrink­ing, inspite of many reports last time.

P. suma­tranus has reported by just one owner, but some off­spring give hope. The form „Riau“ no longer has been reported.

P. tweed­iei again has reported more often. The forms of „Parenggean“ and “Ayaer Hitam” are lost. Also the other local­i­tys are on a very low level.
