Tetragonopterus argenteus

11. July 2018

Currently we can offer wonderful, fully grown Tetragonopterus argenteus from Paraguay. The species attains a length of 8 – 12 cm. Formerly the genus Tetragonopterus was a catch-all genus for small characins from South America. Most of them are placed now in other genera, for example Hemigrammus, Hyphessobrycon, or Moenkhausia. But still the common name „tetra“ for characins is in broad use and tetra is nothing else than the abbreviation of Tetragonopterus. Nowadays only 9 species are placed in Tetragonopterus and only one, T. argenteus, can be considered as an aquarium fish.

For our cstomers: the fish have code 296006 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
