Sewellia sp. Spotted

19. December 2007

(19.Dec.2007) This, very attractive, probably scientifically not described hillstream sucker reached us from Vietnam.
They remember on Sewellia lineolata but their point pattern is finer and also is the for S. lineolata
characteristic “stripe” missing. Like all hillstream suckers they come from fast flowing water, there
they inhabit rapid flowing streams where they graze on boulders. This means for the fishkeeper that
their high demands on the water quality and oxygen content have to be fullfilled. A strong filter
generating a high flow, rounded rocks and a strong lighting (algae growth!) are important. As they
feed on Algae and small invertebrates their diet should not be to rich in content.(Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl).
