Yesterday we received for the first time ever an extremely unusual species of knifefish from Paraguay: Rhamphichthys hahni. We obtained three specimens of about 20-30 cm length. Despite the fact that the species has been described in the year 1937 already it has been overlooked by most of the following scientists. The photos posted here are only snapshots of our freshly imported specimens, but due the rarity of these fish we want to present them to you immediately.
