We recently succeeded in importing the species Hyphessobrycon epicharis, which had previously only been imported in very small numbers (see https://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/09-characoids-tetra-relationship/hyphessobrycon-epicharis-2/ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBofRyOLk3g). Now we have succeeded in importing once more that species that is unmistakable due to its distinctive shoulder spot.
This time the animals are somewhat smaller (and therefore cheaper), but more colorful. Many of the animals have red tail fins and shiny golden gill covers. Once again you can see that it is important to have seen a larger number of live animals of different ages in order to be able to judge the color variability of a species.
For our customers: the fish have code 260042 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply the wholesale trade.
