I've had a couple of these guys for a while now but they have proved
to be very shy, but last night they came out to pose for a few pics ..

Hi,
Nice looking Loaches.

They look like asuhikotakia modesta.

If they are I hope they are being kept with only them selves in their own tank. because these Loaches do get very territorial.

Thanks, yes they are Yasuhikotakia modesta and your right they do get
aggressive towards their own species and other loaches, but they don't
bother the other fish I have in that 55g.

another person from Ireland :19: :19: Can I maybe be so cheeky to ask what pricebracket your lense was in, if you don't want to tell that's okay too, I am so wanting a nice macro lens and what you have seems to be the business

This lense is not cheap I was saving for almost 3 years to get it, but I
will say it is an awesome peice of glass.
It's the Nikon 105mm f2.8 G AF-S VR IF ED Micro Nikkor Lens and at
472.95 is Nikons cheapest pro micro lense I think.
That price was at warehouse express, i'm sure with a bit of dedicated searching you will find it on line for cheaper.
I hope this helps.
Mike.
