Corydoras in theory and practice

Corydoras in theory and practice

Corydoras in theory and practice

In this talk, I will introduce the popular armored catfish of the genus Corydoras. Starting with a general introduction to Corydorinae, followed by a little bit of theory about the lineages, C and CW numbers before going on to the presentation of different biotopes where I could already caught Corydoras.
Then I’ll give some information about keeping and breeding of these catfishes and also give an overview of different species that I could find in recent years in the trade.

Andreas Tanke

For more than 10 years I have been working as a specialist author and speaker in aquaristics. My main topic is the ichthyofauna of South America, especially the plecos and dwarf cichlids.

I hold my lectures at meetings or events of aquarium associations, specialized shops or at trade fairs at home and abroad.

Recently I was on a three-week lecture tour in the US, but I also like to come to your aquarium club, whether it's a small gathering or an event with several hundred participants.

Caring and breeding installations all over the world

Caring and breeding installations all over the world

In this short lecture, I’ll present a selection of the breeding and breeding equipment that I have seen during my travels through the aquarium rooms and cellars all over the world. It reaches from Germany via Brazil, Peru and the USA to England and then back to Germany.
This talk can also be combined with other short talks to an evening event.

Introduction and breeding report of Panaqolus claustellifer (L 306)

In this talk I‘ll present a very nice and small pleco: Panaqolus claustellifer (L 306). That species comes from the most northern area of Brazil in Roraima state. I have found Panaqolus claustellifer (L 306) in their naturals habitats, but at home in my tanks.
In this talk I will give information about the origins of these pretty Panaqolus, by presenting photos and data of some biotope. But I will give also hints and information how I was able to spawn and breed them.
This talk can also be combined with other short talks to an evening event.

Wood Eaters – the loricariids of the genera Panaqolus, Panaque and Cochliodon

Wood Eaters – the loricariids of the genera Panaqolus, Panaque and Cochliodon

Wood Eaters – the loricariids of the genera Panaqolus, Panaque and Cochliodon

Just from the beginning I was fascinated by wood eating plecos. Next to my favorite genus Panaqolus there are with Panaque and Cochliodon two more genera with that uncommon behavior. I‘ll present in this talk not only general information about this behavior, but also introduce the biotopes where these catfishes live. Furthermore I’ll report about their way of life, their sexual dimorphisms and some breeding successes of these genera…

Venezuela – traveling with JBL and aquarists

Venezuela – traveling with JBL and aquarists

In 2016, I got the honor to accompany a tour group to Venezuela by an invitation from JBL. Due to the good preparation and planning, we were able to travel the country very safely despite the politically difficult situation. The journey consisted of two parts. The first part took us to the estuarine delta of the Orinoco, where we spent a few days in an ecolodge and explored various biotopes there. For the second part were going by small planes (4-6 seats) to Canaima with the aim to visit the Salto Ángel (highest waterfall in the world).
In this talk, I report on this trip and give insights into the flora and fauna we traveled.
