Aspidoras pauciradiatus

25. November 2020

This cute dwarf armored catfish reaches a maximum length of only 3 cm. Aspidoras pauciradiatus comes from the central Rio-Negro area and is an ideal community fish for characins, dwarf cichlids etc. Strangely enough, the specimens on which the scientific description is based were allegedly collected in the Rio Araguaia near the town of Aruana, about 2,000 km from the usual fishing grounds of the species. Since then they could not be found there again.

For our customers: the animals have code 208704 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply the wholesale trade.
