genus Salminus currently comprises four species. These tetras can
become very large. The most colorful of them is S. brasiliensis, also
known as “Dorado”. Old fish get a breathtaking beautiful golden colour
all over the body. This species is also known under the old, invalid
name S. maxillosus. The species can become one meter long. Our juveniles
originate from Paraguay and are currently 7-10 cm long. The pictures of
the young fish show our actual stock, while the two pictures of old
fish are added only to show you what will become of the pretty
youngsters: wonderful oldies!
