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 https://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archives/procatopus-aberrans-6/
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.
