10. Catfishes (506)

  • L134 Peckoltia compta

    13. September 2019

    The L-number catfishes are like us humans. There are pretty, very pretty and extraordinarily pretty specimens. To the latter group belong the L134 (Peckoltia compta) from the Rio Tapajós, which we currently have in stock. P. compta belongs to the most recommendable L-catfishes at all and unites all desired characteristics of this group in ideal […]

  • Ancistrus patronus and Ancistrus sp. “Rio Tocantins”

    13. September 2019

    In small numbers we received German bred specimens of these pretty bristle-noses. Ancistrus patronus is one of the numerous white dotted, black species and was known in the hobby as Ancistrus sp. “Puerto Ayacucho” and A. sp. “Rio Parucito” before its scientific description in February 2019; the numbers L125 and L150 were given to imported […]

  • Ageneiosus lineatus (= sp. III Green Stripe)

    12. September 2019

    Update: es handelt sich um die Art Ageneiosus lineatus Ribeiro, Rapp Py-Daniel & Walsh 2017 The dolphin catfish were only recently revised and divided into two genera: Ageneiosus and Tympanopleura. Tympanopleura are the smaller species. They are characterized by a circular structure immediately behind the edge of the gill cover, which looks like a tympanum. […]

  • Corydoras venezuelanus “Orange” and C. sp. “Venezuela Black”

    6. September 2019

    Such a pretty little fish and such an ugly confusion about the name! Corys, which look like the bronze cory, Corydoras aeneus, appear in whole South America. However, these are certainly different species, there is general agreement. Only – how to name them correctly? Whether the cory, which is currently called Corydoras venezuelanus “Orange” in […]

  • Ancistrus sp. Paraguay

    28. August 2019

    After Paraguay had closed its doors for half a year for the export of ornamental fish, now imports from the southern country in South America reach us again. Among them also various Ancistrus species, which are often sent mixed. It has become common practice in the trade to call these animals Ancistrus tamboensis, which is […]

  • Liosomadoras oncinus

    26. August 2019

    The Jaguar catfish (Liasomadoras oncinus) belongs to the rarities in the aquarium. Also in the large museum collections of the world the species is only sparsely represented, so that the knowledge about these animals is small. In the aquarium, they belong to the very sensitive species that only experienced aquarists should dare to approach. The […]

  • Corydoras sp. aff. parallelus CW127

    23. August 2019

    Just as L-numbers are assigned for undetermined loricariids, C- and CW-numbers are assigned for undetermined Corydoras. One of the first species to receive such a number was Corydoras parallelus, which was assigned the number C2 in 1993. In the same year Burgess described it as C. parallelus.  The species originates from the upper Rio Negro […]

  • Zebra Otocinclus

    15. August 2019

    Currently we have two forms of very attractive Zebra-Otocinclus from Peru in stock.  The first species, Otocinclus cocama, is more commonly available. It shows a rather dense pattern of vertical black stripes on a light background and has the code number 274154 (see also http://www.aquariumglaser.de/de/otocinclus-cocama_de_1342.html_de_1342.html).  Only in small quantities and very rarely we get a […]

  • A white Corydoras sp. C124

    15. August 2019

    We get the rare long nosed Corydoras sp. C124 occasionally under the names C. cortesi (that is another species from Colombia) or Corydoras “Huangana” (so one calls the wild pigs of the species white-lipped peccary) from Peru. C124 has a very variably pattern, each individual can be recognized by his special pattern. But this time […]

  • Trachelyopterichthys taeniatus

    9. August 2019

    Among the driftwood catfishes are some quite attractive coloured species. This is a bit astonishing, for these catfishes are usually strictly night active and hide during daytimes in caves or crevices. However, well settled animals usually come out of their wholes at feeding times in the aquarium. Trachelyopterichthys taeniatus belongs to the really attractive species. […]
