Chela dadiburjori (= Laubuca dadiburjori, = Neochela dadiburjori)

4. January 2019

This nano gem reached us from the south of India; the charming dwarf fish reaches a maximum size of 3 cm. It is an absolutely peaceful schooling fish that spawns on the upper side of broader leaves of submersed plants – Ludwigia-species are preferred. 

On our stocklist this species was intially written as dadyburjori; so it is also written in the aquarium atlas, because the species name was given in honour of a Mr. Dadyburjor. But the scientifically correct spelling is dadiburjori (i.e. with “i” and not with “y”), which would lead too far to explain here, but this spelling is the correct one.

For our customers: the tiny animal has code 409502 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
