Brian Watters, Ruud Wildekamp and myself collected three different Nothos
from the Soga TAN 97/45 location. One was N. ocellatus, which we did not
keep, one was N. janpapi and one was N. foerschi. N. guentheri comes only
from Zanzibar. We collected this species too, but the location IDs are N.
guentheri Zanzibar TAN 97/2 and 97/4. I would guess that you are referring
to N. foerschi Soga TAN 97/45. We believe that this is the original
collection site for N. foerschi. If you have this fish, you should be able
to get the correct location data from the breeder.
N. sp. TAN 97/14 was collected by us on the same trip. It is a red-tailed
Notho, quite attractive.
I hope that nobody is distributing these fish without the proper location
designations. This has been discussed many times before, but it is
important to maintain these fish as separate populations, and the only way
to do that is to strictly adhere to the naming conventions that the
Hope this helps.
