Acheilognathus macropterus – Giant Bitterling

2. March 2016

the first time ever we obtained this splendid bitterling via Hongkong.
The species is said to become more than 25 cm long and this would make
it the largest species of bitterling at all! However, our fish are
currently 6-8 cm long and in full colour, so maybe more than one species
is involved, as the bitterlings are a very confusing group of fishes.
In any case our new importations are a gorgeous supplement to the
ornamental fishes from China.

our customers: the fish have code 800133 on our stocklist. Please note
that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Only males available.
