Hasemania sp. Orange

6. June 2011

After a long time we were able now to import once more this beautiful tetra from Peru. It was not possible so far to place it in a known genus or described species. We chose the name “Hasemania” only because the basic coloration of the fish is somewhat reminescent to that of the well known silvertip-tetra (Hasemania nana). However, our new fish cannot belong to genus Hasemania due to its adipose fin which is always lacking in Hasemania.

The males are extremely attractive due to their brass-yellow to copper-red shine on the body, the brillant red spots on the caudal peduncle and the white fintips. The females are a bit duller in coloration, but also very nice fish.

Keeping these new fish is very easy and can be compared with other, well known small tetras (maximum length in our fish: 3-4 cm).

For our customers: the fish have code 225453 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Hasemania: dedication name for J. D. Haseman. nana: Latin, means “dwarfish”.

Suggestion of a common name: Peruvian brass tetra
