Physoschistura cf. elongata

For the first time ever we can offer this charming dwarf loach from the North of India. Maximum length of the species is only 4.5 cm. The fish is undemanding and completely peaceful.

For our customers: the animal has code 454882 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Pysoschistura: combined from the ancient Greek word for “bladder” and Schistura, which is the name of another genus of loach. Refers probably to the anatomy of the air bladder. elongata: Latin, means “prolonged, protracted”.

Suggestion of a common name: Firefly loach
