We thank every­body for tak­ing part in the census.

In gen­eral

In this autumn cen­sus 44 mem­bers par­tic­i­pated. This is exactly the same num­ber as in the last cen­sus. Though this — in pro­por­tion to our mem­ber­ship again is a very low rate, I have not extended the cen­sus period this time. After the newslet­ter con­cern­ing the impor­tance of the cen­sus we had expected a higher rate of par­tic­i­pa­tion. Beside this I am ask­ing myself how often I should sent out email-​reminders. Nor­mally we send one reminder at the begin­ning of the cen­sus period and one to tell that the period has been extended. I don’t want to extend reg­u­larly. There­fore I ask you to tell me, when and how often you want to be remem­bered. For this issue I will start a threat on the forum and look for­ward to your ideas!

Fur­ther on I want to thank you for the reports and the mainly very detailed infor­ma­tions about your stock. For this rea­son our cen­sus is more accu­rate than it has ever been. I thank you espe­cially also for the 8 “neg­a­tive reports”, and ask every­body else to show your inter­est in the next cen­sus, even with­out stock!

Fur­ther on some very pop­u­lar species like P.linkei, P.quindecim and P. phoeni­cu­rus are very fre­quent and con­stant in our stock. On the other side P. deiss­neri has van­ished offi­cially. Also some other species like P. ornat­i­cauda, P.anjunganensis„ or P. palu­di­cola are in a very endan­gered con­di­tion.


P. alfredi seems, com­pared to the last cen­sus, quite con­stant, some mem­bers didn’t participate.

P. allani can be declared as bee­ing secured, for breed­ers and fish num­bers are devel­op­ing positively.

P. anjun­ga­nen­sis has been only reported by two mem­bers. Nev­er­the­less this species has to be con­sid­ered as highly endangered.

P. bin­tan fur­ther on seems to be one of the most fre­quent species, and has been reported more often because of new imports. Par­tic­u­larly pleas­ing is, that now the form „Desa pud­ding Besar“ has been added.

P. deiss­neri has to be con­sid­ered as bee­ing lost from our stock.

P. fil­a­men­to­sus has been often reported. Also the high num­bers of off­spring are very pos­i­tively. But the form „Ampah“ ist fur­ther­ing only present with one member.

P. gunawani with a low num­ber in stock, but the fish from trade seem to be real P. gunawani.

P. har­veyi has been again reported less, com­pared to the spring census.

P. linkei is fur­ther on very secured. Again many fish and many off­spring had been reported.

P. nagyi stayed mostly con­stant and can be regarded as secured.

P. opal­lios has not changed very much and is fur­ther­ing reported by two members.

P. ornat­i­cauda had been just reporded with 7 fish from 3 mem­bers. So the down trend goes on and the species is really in danger!

P. pahuen­sis shows a con­stant num­ber of keep­ers . The many off­spring give hope.

P. palu­di­cola has again just been reported by one member!

P. parvu­lus didn’t change com­pared to the spring census.

P. phoeni­cu­rus again has been reported numerous.

P. quin­decim is most fre­quent in absolute num­bers. This species can be considered

as being secured.

P. rub­ri­mon­tis has been reported by the same mem­bers as in spring. But the num­ber of fish is still growing.

P. suma­tranus is fur­ther on very crit­i­cal. For­tu­nately one stock has been reported from indone­sia, but the species seems get­ting lost out­side of Asia.

P. tweed­iei again has been less reported than in the last cen­sus. We hope this has only been caused by mem­berswho didn´t take part this time.

The forms of „Parenggean“ and “Ayaer Hitam” are just reported by one member.
