10. Catfishes (654)

  • Astroblepus from Colombia

    25. November 2022

    The L-catfishes or Loricariidae from South America belong to the most popular and most desired catfishes for the aquarium. However, even experienced aquarists have hardly ever had the opportunity to see a living representative of the genus Astroblepus. It is the only genus of the family Astroblepidae, the closest relatives of the Loricariidae, distinguished from […]

  • Aspidoras raimundi “Ceará”

    18. November 2022

    The representatives of the genus Aspidoras are popularly also called loach armored catfishes, which is quite a good description. Because the animals are slimmer and more scurrying, than one is generally used to from Corydoras. With 25 species recognized so far, the genus is quite species rich. Their identification is difficult for non-specialists, because species […]

  • Parancistrus sp. Rio Araguaia L56n / LDA46

    2. November 2022

    The genus Parancistrus includes only two scientifically accepted species, the Golden Parancistrus (P. aurantiacus), which was erroneously also assigned L-number 56 (this is incorrect) and P. nudiventris, which was assigned L-numbers 31 and 176; this is a black catfish with very fine white spots. In addition, we know L258 from Rio Iriri, a black catfish […]

  • Hypostomus sertanejo

    26. October 2022

    For the first time we can offer this very nice Hypostomus from the Rio Jaguaribe (Cerea State, Brazil). It is a species that was described scientifically only in 2017, although 19 specimens of this species were found in the scientific collection of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, U.S.A., which had been collected and […]

  • Corydoras cf. brevirostris CW 27 Highfin

    12. October 2022

    We received a limited number of this extraordinary Corydoras from Colombia. The overall appearance is very much alike Corydoras brevirostris (formerly known as Corydoras melanistius brevirostris), but CW 27 has a much much higher dorsal fin and the “glowspot” on the nape is much brighter. For our customers: the animals have code 224954 on our […]

  • Physopyxis lyra

    7. October 2022

    Although this dwarf among the thorny catfishes – it only grows to about 3 cm in length – was scientifically described as early as 1872, it was completely unknown to aquarists until a few years ago. This is a pity, because they are droll, very interesting small catfishes, which are also suitable for small and […]

    The small remaining whiptail catfishes of the genus Rineloricaria enjoy great popularity among aquarists.

The most beautiful is certainly R. teffeana. It has no bright colors, but a really […]

  • Hara hara/Erethistes pusillus

    19. September 2022

    In India live two species of moth catfishes, which are practically impossible to distinguish in living condition. They are nevertheless sometimes even assigned to two different genera: Hara and Erethistes. The difference between the two genera lies in the structure of the vertebral body, that is, of something invisible in the living animal; according to […]
