Somileptes gongota

28. December 2011

For the first time we received the fascinating cat-eyed loach, Somileptes gongota, from India. These fish are sand bottom dwellers that originate from higher regions. Temperature between 16 and 24°C, the water must be very clean and poor in bacteria, pH and hardness are of lesser meaning (in the wild, the water has a pH around 7 and a hardness around 8°GH), very peaceful, maximum size about 12 cm.

For our customers: the fish has code 455393 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
