Osphronemus laticlavius

15. March 2012

We received the very rare red finned giant gourami in two sizes, 4-6 cm (code 440921 on our stocklist) and 8-10 cm (code 440923). The species attains a similar size as the common giant gourami, eg 60 cm. O. laticlavius originates from Borneo. Fertile males develope a very prominent head structure and deep red fins that form a beautiful contrast to the black body. The pictures of the adult fish were made at the Wilhema aquarium in Stuttgart, thus the quality is not as good as usual, but they show nevertheless how breathtaking beautiful this large fish can be.

Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
