    madagascariensis has it. Catostomus catostomus longnose sucker. Very unique in the fact that they have a transpacific distribution and are native in Asia and N. America.

    Yeah. If it were me, I'd set up a sump choke-full of plants, holding a breeding colony of shrimps. The plants will be your living filter, and any small shrimp that get pulled into the main tank will...

    The only way to tell if it is male or female is to look at their underside - a male will have a modified first pair of swimmerrettes (you can look this up).
