Dicrossus foirni (= sp. Rio Negro): checkerboard cichlids, part 2

26. January 2015

Dicrossus foirni is available again! This extremely rarely imported
dwarf cichlid was formerly known in the hobby under the name of
Dicrossus sp. “Rio Negro”. These fish are a real eyecatcher when fully
grown. Keeping this jewel is not complicated at all, but for breeding
extreme water conditions are necessary (pH below 5, hardness practically
zero), for otherwise the spawn will not develop. A little movie about
that species can be found on our facbook-site: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1430331670514501&set=vb.119893808211837&type=3&theater

For our customers: the animals have code 668802 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
