Sorry for the delay in respond­ing, I’ve been away on hol­i­day, iso­lated from the inter­net. Thanks for your mes­sage.

I’ve spo­ken to John Walsh and been to a cou­ple of the Pre­ston Aquar­ists events. I’m based in Urm­ston near Man­ches­ter.

I bought a pair of a P.bintan-like species a cou­ple of months back; ini­tially both did well but unfor­tu­nately I have since lost the female with­out trace. I now wish I had bought more than two!

I’m well equipped for meet­ing their water and food require­ments and have expe­ri­ence of breed­ing and rais­ing fry of var­i­ous fish (dwarf cich­lids, tetras, cory­do­ras and lori­cari­idae, pan­gio loaches). Hope­fully I can find some more Paros and try again at some stage.

Cheers,
Paul

The topic is not very up-​to-​date any­more, but I would like to know what has become of the ornat­i­cauda. A sim­i­lar deliv­ery was made at the end of last year in Ger­many. It was also that the ani­mals were prob­a­bly not healthy. but with me every­thing went well and I have off­spring swim.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Bernd, you appear to be the only per­son who can reli­a­bil­ity breed ornat­i­cauda.
I don’t know what hap­pened to the fish that came to the UK. Nei­ther John Walsh or myself bought any of these. We have both strug­gled in the past to keep them for any length of time, and so decided they weren’t worth the risk. Per­haps if aquar­ium bred ones become more avail­able, we will try again.

Hello Russ
The first clutch brought 41young ani­mals and I have still two scratches in other ves­sels. Almost every week I have a clutch, I think I have enough at the end of the year to dis­trib­ute the F1 gen­er­a­tion. and hope that it will be eas­ier then.

Greet­ings Bernd
