Heros sp. Curare

23. February 2016

For the first time ever we were able to import this splendid species of Heros. Reportedly the animals have been collected in the Rio Curare (name). However, we haven´t eard of a Rio Curare so far. We think the fish have been collected in the Rio Ventuari.

The fish are extremely colorful; all other features make it very likely that this is the “real” Heros severus. In fact almost all Heros spread in the hobby under that name belong to other species.
