Phantastic wild collected Sahyadria denisionii from Karnataka!

14. July 2014

The Red line shark (Sahyadria denisonii, formerly known as Barbus denosonii or Puntius densonii) is a very popular aquarium fish. Currently it is traded almost exclusively as bred specimens from Indonesia.

For the first time ever we now received an import of S. denisonii from a new collection area in India. So far the species was collected only in the state of Kerala, but the new variety has been collected in the state of Karnataka, which is situated south of Kerala.

Compared with the S. denisonii known so far the new variety has more red colours and is thus even more attractive than the (already wonderful) strains currently present in the hobby.

For our customers: the animals have code 369473 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
