Mikrogeophagus altispinosus

29. January 2016

Bolivian Ram, Mikrogeophagus altispinosus, is by far less popular than
its well known cousin from Venezuela, the Common Ram (M. ramirezi).
Maybe this is due to the fact that the Bolivian is traded almost
exclusively as bred ones, because there are no commercial exports from
the area where the species occurs naturally? But the bred ones are also
very pretty fish, aren´t they?

For our customers: the animals have code 686013 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
