Moenkhausia agnesae

27. April 2015

received once more fantastic large Moenkhausia agnesae from Peru. This
is a larger species that can be kept ideally along with cichlids and
catfish. Maximum length reported from M. agnesae is about 8 cm.

this species has been often confused with M. simulata. However, the
horizontal stripes in M. simulata are all black, whereas in M. agnesae
these stripes are reddish in the upper portions of the body. For more
pictures of M. agnesae, please see

For our customers: the fish have code 268575 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
