Rare tropical aquarium fish - Aquatics Live 2012, part 7

FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV PAGE: http://definiteaquascape.tv Several interesting and rare aquarium fish, presented at the booth of the company Maidenhead Aquatics during Aquatics Live 2012 show in London. There were about 30 aquariums displayed here. In the first aquarium there are two species of fish, the first one is really rare Sarcocheilichthys parvus, and the second one is forktail rainbowfish Pseudomugil furcatus. Forktails originate from Papua New Guinea, and they are perfect fish for well established planted aquariums. This species can grow up to 5 centimeters of body length. The second species is Sarcocheilichthys parvus, originating from China and Vietnam. An interesting fact is that they spawn laying eggs inside mussels, just like bitterlings in Europe. The second aquarium is stocked with beautiful fish from North America, rainbow shiners Notropis chrosomus. These fish originate from south eastern part of North America, they inhabit clear-water streams with gravel substrate. What is amazing about them is the colouration, with blue-shining scales all over the body of males. This is a cold-water species, so room temperature without any heating would be perfect for them. Another aquarium, and two really rare species of fish, originating from two different continents, so I have no idea why they were put into one and the same aquarium. The first species is Australian Empire Gudgeon Hypseleotris compressa, and the second one is African catfish Synodontis granulosa. These catfish are endemic to the northern part of the lake Tanganyika. They grow to about 20 centimeters, so they are not suitable for keeping for longer time in such small tanks as the one in which they are displayed at the booth. A very attractive fish, yet it has to be kept in quite large aquariums, of the length of at least 150 centimetres. When kept in too small tanks these catfish can become very aggressive. Another fish is the Empire Gudgeon. These fish have really amazing colouration and very interesting behavior, but unfortunately these two in the aquarium seem to be scared to death, either by the conditions, or by the catfish, so we can't see it in its full beauty. Next aquarium, with another very rare species of fish, peppermint pikeheads Luciocephalus aura, originating from Indonesia. The first interesting fact about them is that they belong to the labirynth fish family, the same as Bettas and Gouramis. Shape of their body clearly suggests that they are predators, feeding on small fish. And the second interesting fact is that these fish are actually mouthbrooders, like some of the recently discovered species of Bettas. Generally, pikeheads are difficult to maintain in the aquarium, so they are not good fish for beginners. Next aquarium is stocked with fish from South America, for a change. There are Electric Blue Rams here, which are not really rare, but there is also another species here, which is quite rare in the hobby. I'm talking about the Orange Otocinclus Nannoptopoma sp. Peru orange. This species appeared on the market not very long time ago, and actually not much is known about it, except that they like to eat a lot of vegetable fish food, and that the water should be very clean and well oxygenated. Generally, this tropical fish is quite difficult to keep in aquarium, and even though it is quite attractive, it's not suitable for beginner fishkeepers. The next aquarium, one before last in this video, is stocked with fish from South-Eastern Asia. The first one is Zhou's Scarlet Goby Rhinogobius zhoui, and the second one is Daisy's Ricefish Orysias woworae. Ricefish are these fish with blue eyes in the left corner of the aquarium. This species was discovered two years ago on the Sulawesi island in Indonesia. It lives in karstic freshwater streams, grows to about 3 centimeters, and it is quite easy to breed in captivity. The second species, Rhinogobius zhoui, is probably the most colorful goby fish from China. It can be kept at room temperature, without any heater in the aquarium. It has very interesting behavior with males being slightly territorial. And finally, the last aquarium in this video, stocked with Neon Yellow Green Microrasboras Microdevario kubotai. These fish originate from Thailand and Myanmar. It is a really small species, not exceeding 2 centimeters, which is good, actually, because you should keep them in a group of at least ten individuals to make them feel good. They have beautiful shimmering green body colouration, but unfortunately, they need dark layout and lots of plants to show their full colors, so in this aquarium they look rather washed-out. Stay tuned for next video, with other interesting species of tropical aquarium fish at the booth of Maidenhead Aquatics!

It's hard to say, it can be anything :) Maybe write an email directly to Maidenhead Aquatics, and ask them - those tanks were arranged by them, so they should know what gravel was used :)

Im very very new at this, what makes a fish "harder" or "easier" to keep? what is it that makes it harder or easier to keep a fish other then size of the aquarium which comes down to financial "hardness" ?

thank you very interesting watch 
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 7 years ago
"Harder" fish are more susceptible to not correct conditions - pH, water hardness, water changes (influencing if the water is clean or not), proper food etc. "Easier" fish can live well even if the fishkeeper makes some mistakes, "harder" fish will die.

I currently have access to lots of rainbow shiners 3+ inches at the creek near my house. Amazing color, and males get red bumps on their noses. Hard to keep wild caught because they don't like anything I feed them. I only have one right now and its color leaves a lot to be desired. First one that's eaten for me though.
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 7 years ago
Yeah, I think it's always difficult to get wild caught fish used to other than natural types of food... Anyways, it's great that you have such wonderful fish near your house :) How about making some underwater filming of them?

BubbleHeadAquaLungs - 8 years ago
but what if you brought in something on a rock? or plant? or other fish, or in your substrate? like i said, its not so simple as you make it seem, but i agree with the last sentence, but this is just as complex as the other point, where did the fish farms start? with wild fish, and if it didnt come from a farm, it came from the wild...so its ok to take, but not put back? see what i mean?
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
If the animal was caught in the wild, brought into the aquarium in the same country, and then released into the wild again, in the place where it was caught, then no additional parasites will be introduced. But anyway, what I mean is that what is in the aquarium, should stay in the aquarium, and what is in the wild, should stay in the wild.
BubbleHeadAquaLungs
BubbleHeadAquaLungs - 8 years ago
it doesn't matter with what you say, you will still get in as much trouble as if it was a non native species, simply because it is known that fish/eels/ amphibians/ reptiles can pick up diseases/ parasites from your aquarium, then taking the same diseases back to the wild after release

DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
Releasing a fish into the wild is not a good idea, and you should never do it. The only acceptable situation is when you have a fish which lives naturally in the water body where you want to release it. If the eel is native to the waters in your area, then releasing it would be fine. But if it's not native, then you should never never never do it. Remeber what happened with the Cane toad in Australia?

DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
To be honest, I have no idea if this particular eel will eat other fish or not. First of all, I wouldn't keep this species in an aquarium - there are hundreds of other fish which are more suitable for aquariums than these eels. What do you do when it grows too large? Release it into some pond around your area?

What species of eel do you mean, exactly? According to Wikipedia, "short finned eel" is Anguilla australis, a species of eel living in rivers of Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, and which grows up to 90 cm of body length. I doubt you have this one in your aquarium.

Hello! I really liked this video. I have a few questions now. I have a short finned eel and it is about 10 center meters. I asked my local fish shop if it could go with any other fish, and he said it would eat everything, but i have seen other people with eels with other fish which seem to be very fine. I was hoping you would know if the eel would go with any kind of catfish or something? And the tank that the eel is in is 2 feet long. Thank you!

Hey, I'm thinking about adding some amazon frogbit to my black-water setup, but I'm not sure if it will grow well under only 2x1W LED modules? (4 SMD LEDs in each module, warm white colour - Vallisneria survives under such a weak light).

Anubias should be planted so that only the roots are in the substrate, and the rhizome should stay above, free in the water. Or you can just attach the whole plant to a piece of driftwood.

Yeah, ricefish are looking nice, and they are also fairly easy to breed, afaik :)

Clay. More specifically it's plain cat litter, haha. I was skeptical but it was recommended to me and I had it checked out at my LFS they said it should work just fine. On top some small aquarium gravel. Oh I also have a couple cabomba plants that rooted in it as well. Initially I did plant some sort of anubias with broad leaves but it sort of just melted away within a week. Never figured out why. I'm a bit of a newbie if you haven't noticed yet. But I love plants and the fish seem great with it

but keep in mind that all systems are different, and you won't know for absolutely certain until you try these for yourself. Apongetons are also nice and simple, but do need a dormant period. I tend to stay away from Swords on the ground that they are huge hogs of nutrients & can make it harder for other plants to live from that and shading from their huge size. Various hygrophila species are easy/fast growing (ie polysperma, corymbosa), but usually need additional potassium supplements to
microiguana
microiguana - 8 years ago
that somewhat depends. What is the substrate you are using? Most common plants will tolerate that PH. Off the top of my head, some good beginning plants (including aforementioned species(anubias comes in many varieties)) would be ludwigia repens, cabomba, bacopa, rotala indica or rotundfolia, Vals (italian, jungle, corkscrew, giant), dwarf saggitaria, willow moss, Dhg, crypt wendtii, Red Bamboo 'Kawagoeanum', Mayaca fluviatili, pearlweed etc. All of these should be hardy and forgiving.
FlintSparked

What would you recommend for a low tech tank with medium high lighting, nutritious substrate, and a higher pH? Like around 7.8.
microiguana
microiguana - 8 years ago
Java fern, java moss, anubias, wisteria, water sprite are all easy beginner plants, and don't really need much nutritious substrate to grow well. At the very least all tanks should have some types of floating plants (the best would probably be amazon frogbit), it does wonders to naturally filter the water from nitrates as well as other potentially harmful chemicals and minerals in the water.
microiguana
microiguana - 8 years ago
he's lying.
FlintSparked
FlintSparked - 8 years ago
I have a low tech tank and threw some wisteria and java moss in there and it makes the tank look 10 times better and the fish 10 times happier. I bet these fish look great with some more exotic plants. Very cool video nonetheless. I like the rice fish.

Well, I think there are more and more people who are using real plants, not plastic. As for the reason for having plastic plants, I think it's just because it's far easier to have plastic - you don't need to care for them at all.

We keep the Synodontis. We currently only have one but plan to get 3-5 more in the near future. I guess I should not feel so bad now when I pay close to $40 a fish. We love this fish and have great success with it so far.

Well, I think that "rare" fish shouldn't be sold at all for "average Mr Smith". I mean, all these "new" species which do not breed in captivity (yet), and also other, which need to be rather wild-caught than bred in captivity. I think such species shouldn't be available in pet stores, to not make the demand bigger (if there is a demand), and to not "stress" the environment even more. I think only fish breeding in captivity should be available in pet stores for an "average Mr Smith".
DefiniteAquascapeTV
DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
Well, I can see one reason for using plastic plants - it's really easy to set up a "nice" composition, and one doesn't need to know anything about growing plants. For getting such results with living plants one would need to know a lot, and do a lot of experimenting with fertilizers, CO2 etc. With plastic you just buy what you like (I mean the "plants") and arrange them. After 10 minutes you have "nice" aquarium. That's why plastic is popular, I think (luckily, not in Poland :) ).

Here are some facts about the US market: The fish at 00:55 sold for $2 a piece. The fish at 00:33 can't even sell because it is "local" and most people want "exotic". Fish at 02:51 does not sell at all - had a group of them for 2 years and had to sell them very cheap. And that gudgeon is one of the fish with most amazing behavior I've seen. 04:11 - a lot of interest in this oto, but price can't be higher than $5. 05:12- any goby can not be sold for more than $6. 05:10 and 05:32 - barely $2.00

Few years ago I owned a rare fish import company. The fish in this video are extremely common on exporter's lists but pass as "rare"for a simple reason: Not very many people would pay good money for them. That makes the importers not import them. I have experience with quite a few undescribed species - they just didn't sell. People like what they already know. In this sense your video about "rare" fish is great - it makes people talk about and want fish that they don't know much about.
GreatWhiteNiko
GreatWhiteNiko - 8 years ago
Well, truth is there are no rare fish. Species that are not seen often in the hobby are "rare" only because they do not sell very well. So the importers do not import them. But these fish are always available for import. Also there are many species of fish that are not even described yet. They barely sell. People prefer to buy what they think they know is "rare" and not what is indeed new and unseen.

Yeah, Maidenhead Aquatics are "specialists" in plastic plants. I know that it's far easier to set up a "nice" aquarium using plastic plants, but tanks with living plants look soooooo much better! You will see in the next video, there are also some really nice tanks at their booth.
