Apteronotus leptorhynchus GOLD

11. January 2011

A very special knifefish reached us currently from Colombia: a golden Apteronotus leptorhynchus! The species is widespread and common in Colombia and we have the “Brown Ghost” regularly stocked; but this is the first time ever that we became aware of a specimen with such an unique coloration.

For our customers: the animal has code 208013 on our stocklist.Plaese note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Apteronotus: ancient Greek, means “with no fin on the back”. leptorhynchus: ancient Greek, means “with a small snout”.
