20 Notropis chrosomus
7 Otocynclus affinis

In Planning:
- 20 more Notropis (or from spawn and the spawning comes sometimes by - now that the Corys are out should times fold)
- Otos be implemented in the basin of my wife (still no place ...)

@ Jürgen
Thanks for your rating

The current stocking is not my desire stocking !!!!

I am looking for Beifischen for Notropis chrosomus. Specifically, these are:
Etheostoma "Yellowthroat"
Etheostoma Rufuilineatum
Etheostoma Caeruleum
Etheostoma Ramseyi

Two pairs of the above species were my goal ... but not find in Germany so readily.
Desired stocking would therefore be:
40 Notropis chrosomus
1M / 1W Etheostoma "Yellowthroat"
1M / 1W Etheostoma Caeruleum

Unfortunately, so far, all efforts had no success to the co-inhabitants ... but I stay tuned
