Procatopus aberrans

1. October 2021

Again we could import the lampeye fish Procatopus aberrans from NIgeria; unfortunately we do not know the location where they were collected. However, we know that our supplier occasionally receives fish from Cameroon. Anyway, the current imports are a bit more graceful in body structure and the upper half of the iris lacks the red rim that was so characteristic of the specimens imported in January. See

These are very beautiful, elegant fish that should be kept and bred separately from other P. aberrans populations to be on the safe side.

For our customers: the animals have code 343103 on our stock list. Please note that we only supply to wholesalers.
