Moenkhausia pittieri

30. September 2014

Diamond tetra is present in the hobby since 1933. The species lives
endemic in the lake Valencia in Venezuela (Inclusive some tributary
rivers). Usually only bred specimens are available, only every now and
then some wild collected ones appear in the trade. At the first glimpse
the fish may look a bit unspectacular, but this beguiles. In the right
light the adult fish glitter and glimmer in a breathtaking way and show
why they really deserve the name Diamond tetra!

For our customers: the fish have code 269103 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
