Metynnis cf. lippincottianus

19. November 2012

We received very pretty spotted silverdollars from Brazil. The particular variety is sexually differentiated at a very early stage. In our specimens, which are about 6 cm long, the sexes are already distinguished. The males have an orange spot on the shoulder, shining scales on the back and the outer border border of the anal fin has another shape than in the females.

For our customers: the fish have code 267913 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!
