This is a fish like an evening in a swamp: dark and spooky. Wallagonia micropogon is a predator, anyone can see. The validity of the species W. micropogon is the subject of controversial discussion, many scientists believe that it is a synonym of Wallagonia leerii. Our specimens originate from Thailand. Currently they are small, only 7-9 cm long, and easy to handle, but one fine day they will be 1.5 m long and will weigh over 80 kg.
For our customers: the fish have code 475703 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
