Pareiodon cf. microps

6. July 2007

This pencil catfish, a relative of parasitic the urethra of humans entering catfishes, is very rarely traded. The affiliation to the genus Pareiodon is rather clear, the species classification however is yet not clarifyed. As predators they should not be socialized with to small fishes. Due to their rarity no reports about their maintenance in the aquarium are present to us. For collectors of rarities: there is one albino in stock!
