I've an absolutely fascinating article in a now defunct British magazine, which goes quite deeply into the mechanisms of adaptions in Oxygen requirement of fast-water fish, particularly Gastromyzon and "Bulldog" Plecs.

If any of you would like to have this information I will gladly transcribe it onto this forum for general consumption. It's long and complicated, so I'm only going to give myself an RSI if there's enough interest!

Martin.
