The political situation in Guinea is not stable at all. So it is very difficult to organize an importation from there. But now we were successful once more and we proudly present to you some of the ornamental fish species from Guinea:
A single specimen of that lampeye is a quite drab creature, but a larger school of them in a tank with dimmed light is like magic! The blue eyes drift like small fireflies through the underwater world – wonderful!

The Clown killi is one of the smallest species of killifish at all and a perfect fish for so-called nano tanks.

Opposite attracts. Some hobbyists like small fish, some other one like large fish. A species for the latter group is the very rare Polypterus ansorgii, which we have obtained in specimens of 35-60 cm length.

Pelvicachromis rubrolabiatus Dinkinya
In this pretty cichlid the females are even more attractive than the males. The fish were also a containment of the present import from Guinea. Male become around 10 cm long, females stay smaller.
