Aguarunichthys torosus

27. May 2014

could import a very special fish for the hobbyists specialized in
predatory catfish from Peru: Aguarunichthys torosus. This species has
been discovered only in 1986. Isn´t it fascinating that nature has the
same solution for totally different species over and under the water?
The spotted pattern of A. torosus is very similar to the pattern of the
wild cats from the jungle! A. torosus becomes about 35 cm long.
