  • Hyphessobrycon takasei

    Hyphessobrycon takasei

    6. July 2007

    ++ Wild collected Hyphessobrycon takasei currently (December 2010) arrived ++ After seeing and purchasing this beautiful tetra from the under Amazonas basin (Amapá area) at AQUARIUM GLASER for the first time, we were not sure in the beginning, if it is definitely Hy. takasei, because its shoulder spot seemed a little to small to us. […]

  • Hyphessobrycon bifasciatus

    6. July 2007

    The Yellow Tetra originates like its close related Von Rio Tetra from coastal rivers in southeast Brazil. With its pretty yellow basic colour it forms a beautiful contrast to it and other reddish characin species. As a schooling fish the Yellow Tetra should be kept only in larger swarms. Particularly in not too brightly lit […]

  • Erythrinus erythrinus

    6. July 2007

    June 2007: Last week we imported from Peru a small amount of probably the most beautiful of all wolf characins. A big advantage of Erythrinus erythrinus is it’s size, that stays with about 25 cm in a tolerable area. It doesn’t have excessive claims with water-chemistry. In it’s homeland, it lives next to small streams […]

    Hemibrycon spec. „Paraguay“

    6. July 2007

    In the last years some quite difficult to classify new species of characins arrived from Paraguay. Usually they belong to the genera Creagrutus, Hemibrycon and Piabarchus. As a common characteristic a high swimming activity can be called for all species of this relationship. They need thus tanks, with a large free swimming area. Thus long […]

  • Hyphessobrycon cf. loweae

    Hyphessobrycon cf. loweae

    6. July 2007

    It was illustrated on the homepage of Canadian fish exporter “Below Water” and designated as “Kitty” Tetra (“a new Hemigrammus-species, caught in Mato Grosso in November 2000). It is presented as Hyphessobrycon loweae in the February/March-issue of “Aquaristik Fachmagazin & Aquarium heute”. According to Dr. Géry there are “good correspondences” with Hyphessobrycon loweae (Costa & […]

  • Cheirodon spec. „Gold Neon“

    6. July 2007

    At present we can offer some Cardinals of the variety „Gold Neon“. This is one of some more in the wild rarely existing colour forms of Cheirodon axelrodi. Actually it is not clear whether this colour forms are distinct species or varieties of the cardinal. At the “Gold Neon” the blue colour strip is replaced […]

  • Characidium spec. V

    6. July 2007

    This prettily drawn representative of the genus Characidium reached us over Rio de Janeiro, its actual occurrence area is unknown. A classification of the more than 50 Characidium species is difficult, for orientation we here adopt the numbering of the Aqualog photo collection. As natural biotope small clear watercourses are to be assumed. The water […]

  • Hydrolycus tatauaia

    6. July 2007

    From Peru some sabre toothed Tiger Fishes of the species Hydrolycus tatauaia came to us. For the maintenance of these impressive hunters naturally roomy aquariums (> 1000l) are needed. Young specimen can be kept in swarms, in the wild even swarms of mixed species were observed. With ageing their aggression potential rises and they become […]

  • Leporinus cf. copelandi

    Leporinus cf. copelandi

    6. July 2007

    From Brazil we received a small number of this, expressed beautiful characin species. They reach a final size of approx. 20cm. Since they belong to the most attractive characins we will try to import a larger number of them. (Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
