Heros cf. efasciatus Red Shoulder

3. June 2014

We received wonderful wild collected specimens of this extraordinary species from Peru. Currently the fish are 9-12 cm long. Experts are still debating whether these fish belong to the species Heros efasciatus or to a scientifically still undescribed species of Heros. But all agree that they represent the most attractive Heros at all. Males can be distinguished from the females by the pattern of the head, both sexes have the red shoulder.

For our customers: the fish have code 682925 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
