Hemiloricaria teffeana

6. March 2017

The vicinity of Tefé (written Teffe in elder publications) in Brazil is a place of wonders in aquarists eyes. When the name Tefé is spoken everybody is reminded in beautiful Green Discus and gorgeous Apistogramma agassizii from that region. But ther also lives a very attractive whiptail catfish: Hemiloricaria teffeana. However, the species has a wider distribution, like (on a species level) Green Discus and Apistogramma agassizii also have.

For our customers: the fish have code 257975 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in very limited numbers only!
