Biotodoma cupido COARI

3. March 2015

Coari is one of the largest cities in the Brazilian state of Amazonas. From the hobbyist´s point of view, Coari is famous for its wonderful Green Discus. Now we received for the first time ever Biotodoma from Brazil which were said to have been collected nearby Coari. Even immediately after the importation the fish showed an extraordinary coloration. In first instance the rusty-red, horizontal stripe over the shoulder was very obvious. And also the eyespot on the back of the fish – a genus-typical feature – looks very strange and has in all our specimens the shape of a headstanding comma. We think that possibly the Biotodoma from Coari do even represent a species new to science!

For our customers: the fish have code 634024 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!
