I had been looking for the famous Crossocheilus Siamensis in
Spain,Belgium,Italy, and than, Taipei, Singapure and Chicago, nobody
have them, and mainly nobody hear about them, and they try to sell the
Epalocinchrus, saying it is the same.
I got them in the same street were i live in Barcelona Spain.
I had been talking with this gentleman that handles the aquarium from
the Science Museum in Barcelona, about this kind of fishes, and I asked
him the reason why it is so dificult to find , specially if, in theory,
they come from Asia, and there nobody knows about them.
He explain me that the reason it is thet they come from a farm in the
the Tchek Republik and not from Asia.
when in Chicago shops, I had asked to them if they receive any mail
from the Tcheck republic farms, and they say yes but they do not have
time to read them.
So, if somebody it is interested on the adress of this shop or anything
else about the farm, let me know
prices for small were 3 $ medium 5 $ about.
>From Barcelona were the wheater use to be so fine and nice Vicente
