Hemirhamphodon phaiosoma

17. September 2013

For the first time ever we could import this very beautiful halfbeak from Indonesia. The halfbeaks of the genus Hemirhamphodon are adapted to blackwater in the wild. Thus they need – at least for the time of acclimatisation – very soft and acidic water. Maximum length of the species is around 6 cm (male), females stay smaller.

For our customers: the fish have code 421413 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
