Pyrrhulina australis

4. June 2014

Finally we were able once more to import Pyrrhulina australis from Paraguay. The animals have pretty yellow caudal fins with a sky-blue seam, on the operculum is a shining, blue spot. The coloration of the body is changing with mood. Most often the fish display a dark horizontal band over the body, but this can be also completely invisible. Sometimes reddish spot appear on the scales. Maximum length of the species is about 5-6 cm, males become larger than females and have enlarged fins.

For our customers: the fish have code 286653 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
