    Perfect example Hobbs and the reason for this article...the internet and many books have the wrong pictures LOL

    The one you posted above is a C. citripinnis - true Siamensis don't have a black stripe in the eye. Also on this one the black side markings fade/blend into the abdomen rather than it being solid creamy white.

    Hi Fishalishouse.

    Sorry I did not answer. I could not find the link, to only find it was a sticky.

    They normally don't stop moving around the plants glass or rocks. they seem to be always one the move.

    Cheers,
    mac

    Had the opportunity to see a Langei at a fellow aquarist's place today..

    They had the barbels, and the ventral black blotch..

    Now that I know what I'm looking for, it's easy!

    To know what a proper Langei looks like, anyways..

    I asked him to grab some if he runs across any more..

    Yeah, a good close-up picture of a siamensis or at least a langei would be good to have here..

    Mind you, the link provided in the second post serves that purpose..

    I wonder if the different varieties would school together..

    Or are SAE schoolers?

    I know my 2 like to hang out together, most of them time, anyways.. :)

    Yeah they are schoolers and the different varieties all hang out with each other - which is why when they are caught and shipped and then delivered to the different LFS you can find a mix of different kinds in one tank...

    In the wild they swim in huge schools of hundreds...

    Do any of the non-Langei species happen to eat ANY algae? I have a green hair infestation and I don't think I have a Langei (no black patch)
