Two new species of ricefishes or buntingi, Adrianichthys roseni and Oryzias nebulosus, are described from Lake Poso, Sulawesi Tengah, Indonesia, bringing to 12 the number of endemic ricefishes known from Sulawesi. Adrianichthys roseni and its sole congener, A. kruyti, are distinguished from other relatively large-bodied ricefishes, Xenopoecilus, in having orbits that project beyond the dorsal profile of the head; paired preethmoid cartilages (versus single or absent in Xenopoecilus); and 13–16… 
Pelvic-fin brooding in a new species of riverine ricefish (Atherinomorpha: Beloniformes: Adrianichthyidae) from Tana Toraja, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia
The present discovery adds another new ricefi sh species to Sulawesi's still only partially known ichthyofauna, and highlights the island's role as hotspot of adrianichthyid diversity.
Mugilogobius hitam, a new species of freshwater goby (Teleostei: Gobioidei: Gobiidae) from Lake Towuti, central Sulawesi, Indonesia
Cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COI) data provide clear support for the species status of M. hitam and indicate that all the Malili Lakes Mugilogobius may well represent a species flock and place M. sarasinorum from Lake Poso as its most likely sister taxon.
A New Riverine Ricefish of the Genus Oryzias (Beloniformes, Adrianichthyidae) from Malili, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia
Oryzias dopingdopingensis, a new species of ricefish, from Doping-doping River, a river in Malili in central Sulawesi, Indonesia, is described and it is observed that females of O. dopingdancingensis, new species, deposit eggs soon after spawning and exhibit no maternal care.
A New Ricefish of the Genus Oryzias (Beloniformes, Adrianichthyidae) from Lake Tiu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia
Oryzias soerotoi, a new species of ricefish, from Lake Tiu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, is described by combination of brilliant orange coloration in the dorsal and ventral margins of the caudal fins of adult males.

Taxonomical status of endemic freshwater ichthyofauna of Sulawesi
The freshwaters of Sulawesi are the habitat of numerous endemic Indonesian ichthyofauna that are not found anywhere else in the world. About 68 endemic fish species described from the Sulawesi’s
Epibiontic communities on the freshwater shrimp Caridina ensifera (Crustacea, Decapoda, Atyidae) from Lake Poso (Sulawesi, Indonesia)
The statistical analysis showed that Zoothamnium, Acineta, Podophrya, and Embata were the epibionts genera most widely distributed on the basibiont, and the pairs of epibIONt genera Z Boothamnium–Embata, Podphrya–Acinet, SpelaeophryA–Amphileptus, and Cothurnia–Vorticella followed a similar pattern of distribution.
A Revised Taxonomic Account of Ricefish Oryzias (Beloniformes; Adrianichthyidae), in Thailand, Indonesia and Japan
Morphological differences suggest that the six species of Oryzias minutillus may be reproductively isolated from each other.


Neostethus djajaorum, new species, from Sulawesi, Indonesia, the first phallostethid fish (Teleostei : Atherinomorpha) known from east of Wallace's line
The new species, Neostethus djajaorum, is described from specimens from the Gowa District near Ujung Pandang, Sulawesi and is the first species in the distinctive atherinomorph fish family Phallostethidae known from east of Wallace's Line and from SulAWesi.
Phylogenetic systematics of the viviparous halfbeak genera Dermogenys and Nomorhamphus (Teleostei: Hemiramphidae: Zenarchopterinae)
Results indicate overwhelming support for a sister-group relationship between Hemirhamphodon and (Dermogenys+Nomorhamphus), and confirm earlier suggestions that Dermogeny, as previously defined, is paraphyletic.

Data presented support the use of medaka as another important fish model for the study of vertebrate developmental genetics and indicates that it is possible to identify mutations, the phenotypes of which could not be found in zebrafish mutants obtained by large-scale mutagenesis.
Fugu Rubripes: A Fish Model Genome
The genome of the Japanese Pufferfish, Fugu, was initiated by Sydney Brenner in 1990 at the Molecular Genetics Unit, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, and could be used both as an evolutionary tool, but also as an aid to understanding the data generated from the Human Genome Project.
Enzyme clearing of alcian blue stained whole small vertebrates for demonstration of cartilage.
Alcohol treatment in addition to formalin fixation does not affect results with this method, it should be useful to researchers who want to study the cartilage or cartilaginous skeletons in museum specimens, which are routinely fixed in formalin and stored in alcohol.
