Surprise, surprise! A silver dollar from Peru

19. July 2016


Very small specimens of the different species of silver dollar and piranha are hardly to tell apart. They all have a very similar coloration and look always different compared with the adult fish.


We obtained small, only 1-2 cm long silver dollars from Peru under the name of Myleus schomburgkii. This may be or not be, who nows? Currently the fish display only a nice, golden green coloration with some cloudy dark spots. We are very curious what will become of the fish!


For our customers: the animals have code 270500 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
