Moenkhausia pittieri30.09.2014



The Diamond tetra is present in the hobby since 1933. The species lives endemic in the lake Valencia in Venezuela (Inclusive some tributary rivers). Usually only bred specimens are available, only every now and then some wild collected ones appear in the trade. At the first glimpse the fish may look a bit unspectacular, but this beguiles. In the right light the adult fish glitter and glimmer in a breathtaking way and show why they really deserve the name Diamond tetra!



For our customers: the fish have code 269103 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Alestopetersius smykalai25.09.2014



Finally we were able to import once more one of the most beautiful African tetras: Alestopetersius smykalai. The species originates from Nigeria and becomes only 5-6 cm long. So it is a perfect fish also for owners of comparatively small tanks. Due to the wonderful blue back of the males - which differ from the females also by the long dorsal fin and the completely different formed anal fin, which has a white border - it is called "Blue Diamond" in the hobby.



For our customers: the fish have code 100183 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Only very rarely available!

Ammocryptocharax elegans24.09.2014



In March we could import the very rare, unique green coloured ground tetra Ammocryptocharax elegans from Venezuela (see http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/ammocryptocharax-elegans_de_1590.html). Now we were able to import them again, but this time the fish originate from Brazil.

For our customers: the animals have code 203752 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!

A new ornate hillstream loach24.09.2014



The genus Sewellia has made the hillstream loach popular in the hobby. The splendid Sewellia lineolata is named also orante hillstream loach. However, there are more beautiful species in the genus which are imported now and then. Sadly it is often not possible to determine them exactly. We were able to import one of the latter species now.



In any case this ornate hillstream loach is a real enrichment for the aquarium hobby!

Paraloricaria vetula24.09.2014



The genus Paraloricaria contains three species that are distributed in southern South America. The fish are virtually unknown in the hobby. This is for sure at least in part due to the enormous size the fish can reach. At least P. commersonoides and P. vetula become larger than 50 cm.



For the first time ever we could import now Paraloricaria vetula from Paraguay. The unfriendly specific name (vetula means "old crone") refers to the dark pattern that reminded the describer obviously in the deep wrinkles of and old woman´s face. But we find them very attractive!



For our customers: the fish has code 275796 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply  the wholesale trade. Only one specimen available!

Cryptoheros cutteri24.09.2014



We received very nice German bred specimens of this smaller cichlid from Honduras. Despite the comparatively small size - males obtain a maximum length of 13 cm, females always stay smaller - one should not keep these cichlids in small tanks. They have a very vivid temper, especially when they care for the offspring.



The species of Cryptoheros differ from the other members of the Central American Cichlasoma relationship inter alia by the fact that they prefer to spawn on places that are a bit hidden. So the fish display an intermediate behaviour between typical open spawners and cave spawners. Both parents take intensively care for eggs and juveniles.

For our customers: the fish have code 674301 (3-4 cm) and 674302 (4-5 cm) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Corydoras amapaensis24.09.2014



Finally we were able to import again a small number of the extremely rarely offered long snouted Corydoras amapaensis. The species is highly variable in respect of coloration. The sexes can be distinguished best by the shape of the spines of the pectoral fins, which are thickened and hairy in males.



For our customers: the fish have code 221754 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
