L234 Megalancistrus sp. Rio Urguayo10.09.2014



We were able to import two pretty gobbets from Paraguay, or, to be more detailed, from the Rio Urguayo. The two Megalancistrus are currently 40-50 cm long and show clearly why they have deserved their generic name: Megalancistrus means "gigantic Ancistrus".



Scientifically speaking, our fish most probably belong to the species M. parananus.



For our customers: the fish have code 26480-L 234-8 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Only two specimens available!

Dwarf Shrimp Red Tiger18.08.2014



The Tiger Dwarf Shrimp belongs to the species that is known already for quite a long time in the hobby. However, there is still a Babylonian mess regarding the correct scientific name of the animals. But most authors currently think that the species Caridina cantonensis is at least the closest described relative of the Tiger Dwarf Shrimp. So it is best to name them Caridina cf. cantonensis.



This is exactly the same scientific name applied on the Crystal Red and the Bee Dwarf Shrimp. And in fact all these dwarf shrimps can be crossed and the offspring is fertile over generations. This is important to know for all who are interested in breeding shrimps. One must keep the different varieties separately, otherwise a mix will appear.



The Red Tiger Dwarf Shrimp is a very pretty sport of the common Tiger Dwarf Shrimp. It differs from its well-known ancestors in no other respect than the coloration.

For our customers: the animals have code 485384 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Endler´s Guppy El Tigre15.08.2014



One of our breeders in Thailand loves wild forms of small livebearers. He now was able to send us for the first time ever the "El Tigre" variety of Endler´s Guppy (Poecilia wingei). The fish represent a pure strain of a population that was initially collected in El Tigre, Venezuela. Of course the fish are variable regarding the coloration, but they have all the features that make Endler´s Guppys favorite aquarium fish: the small size, the lively behaviour and the ability even to step up the colours during display - and the colours are brilliant anyway!
