Dear FishBase Forum users,

Welcome to our new and improved site!

In the past, spammers have succeeded in making the forum unusable. Thus, in our aspiration to keep the site as simple as possible yet functional, we came up with this new version protected by a captcha system. We have checked and cleaned the database, keeping all good postings and pictures. However, note that the record numbers are tentative, we may need to change them in the coming months, and that the site is without registration at the moment. Please bear with us as we continuously develop this site to maximize service to fish enthusiasts all over the world. Feel free to comment on this version and make suggestions for improvements.

Lastly, we would like to clarify that the forum is for technical comments and inquiries that need scientific responses from experts in our team or other entities/groups that wish to share their knowledge on the subject at hand. If you wish to express your thoughts about our website and/or provide comments on our work, which don't necessarily need a response, then you may use our Guestbook for that purpose.


Enjoy the forum.

Our very best regards.
FishBase

Is this a roundbelly cowfish? (Lactoria diaphana)
Posted on: 17/01/2016 10:19:58

We found this dried out fish while on a beach on Anna Maria Island, Florida. That is along the Gulf coast about 40 miles south of Tampa. We think it looks most like a Roundbelly Cowfish but are looking for someone with more knowledge. Fishbase.org indicates that the Lactoria diaphana isn't found in Florida though, so we aren't so sure if we're right. Thanks for any thoughts.

Could be a Poecilia wingei?
Posted on: 05/01/2016 03:53:50

I colected some of this individuals in octuber 2015 in a stream in the southern part of Mexico (Chiapas). It is a place very close to the border with Guatemala. I colected with electrofishing. I collected near the riparian vegetation. Very slow current (0.53 m / s) at a depth of 60-70 cm. 23 ªC.In april I was in the same site, but I didn't collected this species. Probably an introduction? There is no records for Mexico in fishnet2 neither in Miller 2009. For the color patter it seems to be similar to P. wingei. With guidance the book of Miller 2009 I tryied to reach a identification within the sphenops complex, but it seems no to fit into this group. I'ill appreciate your help in this identification Thanks!
