Xiphophorus milleri

10. June 2015

is another, very interesting species of wild livebearer we can offer.
Our specimens are German bred. Initially this platy oroginates from the
Laguna Catemaco, a freshwater lake in Mexico. X, milleri lives
exclusively in this lake, it is an endemic species. The lake has a
volcanic origin. Depite the fact that the water temperature hardly ever
is lower than 20°C in the lake, it has proven to be a good idea to keep
X, milleri at room temperature, without an additional heater. Otherwise
the species becomes ailing over generations. The females of the stock we
currently can offer are alomst 4 cm long. This is about twice of the
length and more than four times of the mass of the males, which look
almost dwarfish beside them.

For our customers: the fish have code 476533 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
