Pangios all wrong

..in most aquarium literature.

To get the Pangios right this is recommended:
Kottelat, M. and Lim, K. K. P. 1993.
A review of the eel-loaches of the genus *Pangio* (Teleostei: Cobitidae) from the Malay Peninsula, with descriptions of six new species. Raffles Bull. Zool. 203-249

+ later in "Freshwater fishes of Western Indonesia and Sulawesi, Additions and corrections" Kottelat has stated that Pangio kuhlii is restricted to Java.

So what is the name of most "Pangio kuhlii"?

Probably Pangio semicincta!

Some of the ones that are bred can be myersi/semicincta hybrids..
