Erythrinus erythrinus

6. July 2007

June 2007: Last week we imported from Peru a small amount of probably the most beautiful of all wolf characins. A big advantage of Erythrinus erythrinus is it’s size, that stays with about 25 cm in a tolerable area. It doesn’t have excessive claims with water-chemistry. In it’s homeland, it lives next to small streams and also in swampy zones with significantly low oxygen content. As a markedly predator, it obviously can only be held with fishes that are about the same in size. Breeding success in captivity has not been known yet.(Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
