  • L455 Chaetostoma sp. Tiger

    28. August 2013

    Finally we were able once more to import the wonderful Chaetostoma sp. Tiger from Peru. This is our second importation since 2011. Due to the fact that we offered the first specimens long before they attained a L-number they formerly had the codenumber 214844 on our stocklist. Now they have 26480-L 455-4 (5-7 cm) and […]

  • Huge Acanthicus adonis arrived!

    28. June 2013

    Acanthicus adonis is said to reach about 1 m in length and is thus one of the largest species of loricariid catfish at all. The male that reached us now has “only” 45-50 cm. It comes from Peru and his numerous spines and thorns  make it an impressive and able-bodied animal! For our customers: the […]

  • L34 Ancistrus ranunculus

    25. June 2013

    Once more we were able to import one of the flattest species of L-numbers: Ancistrus ranunculus (L34). In any case it is the most emancipated of all, because in this species also the females wear a pretty large beard! For our customers: the animals have code 26480-L 034-3 on our stocklist. Please note that we […]

    12. June 2013

    Once more we were able to import another catfish gem: L95, a scientifically undescribed species of the genus Pseudorinelepis, which is very closely related to P. genibarbis. Our specimens come from the Takutu river in the upper Rio Branco basin. These gorgeous fishes are collected mostly in relative large specimens, because the juveniles are not […]

  • Panque suttoni

    18. March 2013

    The Blue-eyed Panaque was in the 1980ies one of the most common loricariids in the trade. By the way: the correct scientific name is Panaque suttonorum. For unknown reasons the fish is hardly available nowadays. There are, however, a lot of rumours. Some say that an ecological catastrophe appeared, others tell that a madman has […]

  • Peckoltia sp. Alto Nhamunda

    27. February 2013

    For the first time ever we could import this attractive dwarf suckermouth catfish. The maximum length observed was about 14 cm. The males – they can be easily recognized by the long “whiskers” – have a very obvious different colour compared with the females. For our customers: the animals have code 277334 on our stocklist. […]
