Chilatherina sentaniensis

18. March 2013

This wonderful rainbowfish seems to glow from inside! Sadly the species is very close to extinction in the wild due to environment pollution. This species is only found in Lake Sentani in New Guinea and some of the affluents of that lake. Luckily Chilatherina sentaniensis is kept and bred by rainbowfish enthusiasts and there is a chance that the species can survive at least in aquaria. Buying that fish does not only mean that one obtains a beautiful aquarium inhabitant, but buying that fish is also an act of species protection!

For our customers: the animals have code 410152 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
