Currently we received the cute freeswimming dwarf glass cat Tridensimilis brevis from Peru. The fish attains a maximum length of 3 cm. It belongs to the notorious candiru relationship, but is no blood sucker at all. This tiny catfish is that translucent that it is possible to observe the way of the food from the mouth to the vent. T. brevis can be kept problem free with small tetras, but one should better keep no Corydoras – especially C. pygmaeus – along with Tridensimilis. For our customers: the fish has code 298151 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
