Oreoglanis siamensis

21. April 2008

(21.April 2008)…and again we got something very rare: Oreoglanis siamensis. But only a very few pieces. They live in the Mekong area and the Chao Phyraya basins. In the northern part of Thailand you can find them
in the mountain area of Mae Nam Ping and Doi Chiang Dow. They are found in fast floating hillstreams with a temperature of around 18°C and a pH of 6,4-8,9. The oxygen is about 8-10mg per liter and must be considered
if you want to keep this fish. You can feed them with all kind of small fishfood like tabletts or small frozen food. Because they are very rare in their habitats, there are still projects in Asia to breed them and release the bred ones into the nature.
