Teleocichla proselytus

7. May 2014

We received this very rarely offered
dwarf cichlid from the Rio Tapajós in Brazil. Like in the humphead
cichlids of the genus Steatocranus in Africa, Teleocichla have a reduced
swimming bladder; because of that they exclusively live near the
bottom. Our specimens have very nice orange colours in the fins.

For our customers: the fish have code 688052 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
