Cynodon gibbus

4. July 2022

Only very rarely this “vampire predator tetra” gets into our tanks, because this species is extremely sensitive. So we are of course especially pleased that our specimens are very stable and in good health. We received the animals from Peru.

Cynodon gibbus is a predatory fish that feeds on small fish. The species is very widespread in the Amazon and Orinoco. The maximum length is about 30 cm, our animals are currently 12-15 cm long.

For our customers: the fish have code 251324 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesale.
