Brochiloricaria macrodon

15. January 2018

We received from Paraguay this wonderful mouthbrooding whiptail catfish. Once we had this species even as bred ones in stock – many years ago. In our recent import the prolongations of the fins are very obvious. This reminds a bit in Lamontichthys. However, Brochiloricaria has a completely different mouth structure and feeding habit. Brochiloricaria are – like most mouthbrooding whiptail cats, rather interested in meaty food than in Aufwuchs. Our specimens are about 15 cm long. This means they are most probably only half grown, for there are reports of 30 cm long B. macrodon.

For our customers: the animal has code 210954 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply trhe wholesale trade.
