Albino Pacus

21. March 2012

For the first time ever we received two albino pacus (Piaractus brachypomus, formerly Colossoma brachypomum) from Colombia. The fish are really beautiful, for the red colours on the body stay even in the albino variety. Currently the fish are 16-20 cm long. Due to the different shapes of the anal fins they seem to represent a pair.

For our customers: the fish have code 218517 on our stocklist. Please note that we supply exclusively the wholesale trade.
