Neocaridina davidi Fantasy Jelly29.10.2014



The development of new colour sports in dwarf shrimps still goes on and on. The latest brandnew sport reached us now from Taiwan under the name of Fantasy Jelly. This pretty animal is of a deep, intense royal blue; the colour is so intensive that the shrimps sometimes even look black. Possibly this new sport is a further stage of the "Sushi Blue" which we could introduce to you about one year ago (see http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/neocaridina-heteropoda-sushi-blue_de_1529.html)



For our customers: the animals have code 485204 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

L167 arrived!27.10.2014



Finally we were able to import again one of the most attractive species of Cochliodon: L167. The species belongs to the typical representatives of the genus, which feed mainly on soft wood. This can be recognized by the very few teeth, which have a specialized shape with a broad, mussel-shaped cusp. L167 originates from the Rio Negro and is supposed to reach a total length of about 30 cm. Currently our fish are 10-12 cm long.



For our customers: the fish have code 26480-L 167-4 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Poecilia vivipara23.10.2014



We receive this pretty livebearer only very occasionally. Now we obtained this fish from a German breeder. The most remarkable feature of the species is the ability to change the coloration drastically. Often this wild species of molly presents a pattern of vertical stripes, but this can be reduced also to a single spot on the shoulder. The belly of the males is usually yellowish or blueish; but mating, dominant males change to a very bright, splendid orange. Observing the behaviour of this fish is a lot of fun. The species attains a maximum length of about 6 cm and is absolutely peaceful.

Finally available again after many years: L35423.10.2014



We are glad that we were able to import once more the pretty L354 from the Rio Iriri. The species has been described scientifically under the name of Spectracanthicus zuanoni in early 2014. The scientists declare them conspecific with L20 from the Rio Xingu (the Rio Iriri is an affluent of the Rio Xingu). However, L20 has much smaller spots. In the very same scientific paper the genus Oligancistrus has been declared as a synonym of Spectracanthicus.



Anyway: we are very glad to see the beautiful animal again in our fishhouse! Spectracanthicus zuanoni attains a maximum length of about 15 cm.

For our customers: the fish have code 26480-L 354-2 (6-8 cm) and 26480-L354-3 (8-10 cm) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!

Rasbora sarawakensis21.10.2014



The genus Rasbora is a very specious one and contains currently 82 described species. Nevertheless only comparatively few species have been ever kept in aquaria. R. sarawakensis reaches about 5 cm in length and originates from a part of Borneo that belongs to Malaysia. We were able to import the pretty schooling fish, which is completely undemanding, for the first time now.

Acestrorhynchus pantaneiro17.10.2014



We received wonderful specimens of this most attractive barracuda characin of all from Paraguay. Currently the fish have a size of 11-15 cm and already have very nice colours. A. pantaneiro has been named A. altus in the elder aquarium literature. The latter is a close relative, but a different species. A. pantaneiro becomes 30-40 cm long.

Brown-red Discus Madeira Nova Olinda do Norte15.10.2014



Madeira discus are famous for the high degree of red colours for decades already. Last week we received beautiful, brown discus from the Madeira region with the additional name "Nova Olinda do Norte". Besides the nice basic coloration the pretty light coloured, almost white dorsal fin is worth mentioning in our newscomers.

Corydoras sp. Tukano Longnose14.10.2014



There are still species of Corydoras that are imported so rarely and in so low numbers that the fish stay unfulfilled dreams of most enthusiasts. One of the most attractive species of that group is for sure the "Tukanao Longnose". Of course these animals are not rare in the wild in the sense that there are only few specimens, but these fish live solitary and are very shy. So even good collectors can catch only one or two specimens in a time in which they can collect some thousands of "normal" Corydoras tukano. We also could import only eight specimens this time …
