Dawkinsia cf. exclamatio

26. January 2016

We were able to import another splendid large barb from India. It belongs to the species Dawkinsia (formerly Puntius or Barbus) exclamatio or a closely related, scientifically still undescribed species. The fish are currently 8-9 cm long and are in breeding condition. Both sexes show now a red back, the males also develop “spawning pimples” on the snout and prolonged dorsal fin rays. Sadly these strong swimmers show only a much faded coloration in the small photo tank. In their regular, large tank the males also have a ruby-red breast and a deep red caudal fin.

For our customers: the fish have code 369666 on our stockliat. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
