  • Nomorhamphus ebrardtii

    27. August 2013

    We imported very nice specimens of the halfbeak Nomorhamphus ebrardtii. This livebearing fish lives endemic (this means: exclusively there) on the island of Sulawesi, formerly known as Celebes.

  • Rare livebearers

    28. June 2013

    The wild forms of livebearers are hardly ever bred by commercial breeders, because the colorful artifical sports usually sell better. Nevertheless the natural coloured wild forms are very nice fish. We just received the charming Merry Widow (Phallichthys amates) and the Tiburon Limia (Limia tridens) from German breeders in small numbers.

    For our customers: the fish have code 278202 (Phallichthys amates) and 424873 (Limia tridens) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

    16. January 2013

    The Catemaco Swordtail is a splendid, large species of swordtail. Females can reach a length up to 12 cm!

    Rachow´s Nothobranch (Nothobranchius rachovii) belongs to the most popular species of this genus. The fish is extremely colourful and exhibits a gorgeous behaviour while displaying and mating.

  • Xiphophorus hellerii MARLBORO

    27. March 2012

    This brandnew, fascinating sport of the swordtail is a real eyecatcher. The basic colour of the fish is a shining, plain white. About two thirds of the body are jet-red. However, it is not easy to breed such beauties, thus the price is comparatively high, but these graces are worth every cent of it. This […]

  • Xenophallus umbratilis

  • Aphyosemion striatum

    21. February 2012

    Currently we have this beautiful fish bred by German breeders in stock. Sadly the killifish as a whole are often still regarded as sensitive, short living fishes that cannot be kept in community tanks. However, this is wrong. The Aphyosemion species that attach the eggs on substrates and hatch the eggs under water (in other […]

  • Platy “Coffee”

    30. January 2012

    This Platy is a very attractive sport. The body colour is plain blueish-white with sharp contrasting black spots. The eye shines in a beautiful blue. The intensity of the latter depends on the light. This new Platy represents in all probability a close relative of the “Bleeding Heart Platy”, which is a descendent of the […]

  • Skiffia multipunctata

    9. November 2011

    One of our proofed breeders supplied us with a very nice collection of some Goodeids, which are very seldom available in the trade. However, we have only limited numbers in stock.

  • Platy Leopard

    Platy Leopard

    18. July 2011

    Platys with black dots are known quite long already. Initially they were termed Salt´n´Pepper-Platys, later Moskow Platys. Our reliable breeder has now developed two extreme nice strains of black dotted platys, which we call “Leopard Platys”. The first variety has a blue-green body and an intensive red tail (including the tail fin). This variety we […]

  • Jordanella floridae

    Jordanella floridae

    11. July 2011

    It does not necessarily have to be a new species of fish to make us enthusiastic. This good old fashioned killifish is in fact part of our standard stock. Most often the fish are bred ones from Indonesia. But recently we were able to import very large specimens from Florida, the native home country of […]

  • Available soon: Aphyosemion dargei Mbam

    6. June 2011

    One of our reliable killifish breeders will be able to supply us with a small number of these Aphyosemion in autumn, which are by far the most complicated ones to breed. Luckily keeping these crown jewels among the ornamental fish is pretty easy as the three males we obtained for photographing purposes in advance show […]

  • Aphyosemion campomaanense

    10. January 2011

    For the first time ever we have this pretty killifish in stock. Our specimes are German bred. This up to 5 cm long fish originates from Cameroon. It has been described scientifically in 2009.

    7. December 2010

The latest described species is also the most beautiful one: Oryzias woworae was named only in 2010! Immediately after its description it was imported for the aquarium hobby and caused a sensation. We are glad to be able to […]

  • Nothobranchius cardinalis

    13. October 2010

    We have this beautiful nothobranch currently as bred specimens in stock. Nothobranchs are in general extremely beautiful fish, but this species is even more beautiful due to its deep red colours and the minuite size. The species is already known in the hobby for quite a long time. In Aqualog “Killifishes of the World – […]

  • Flexipenis vittatus

    13. October 2010

    Once more we are able to offer a beautiful dwarf livebearer that proofed to be a bit problematical in respect of breeding – not keeping! – in a long time sight under traditional aquarium conditions. However, under the open skies of Southeast Asia they breed pretty well. Flexipenis vittatus is also often placed in Gambusia. […]

  • Lucania goodei

    10. September 2010

    Once more we were able to stock another real gem among the aquarium fish: Lucania goodei. The Bluefin killifish originates from Florida and reaches a length of about 5 cm. Our specimens are German bred. In contrast to most other species of killifish this is a schooling species. To observe the harmless comment fights of […]

  • Xiphophorus variatus

    3. September 2010

    The Variable platyfish (Xiphophorus variatus) is represented in millions of home aquaria by uncountered cultivated forms. However, their wild ancestors – and there are a lot of different populations – are almost unknown even to the most experienced aquarists. As the specific name already suggests: each local population looks different. The place of origin of […]

  • Rivulus rectocaudatus

    3. September 2010

    The killifishes of the genus Rivulus represent the most species-rich genus of New World Killis. We received recently beautiful R. rectocaudatus from Peru, which are unique due to their amazing orange anal and caudal fins, as well as due to their orange scales along the body. Rivulus are not annual fish at all, but live […]

  • Moema cf. ortegai

    17. August 2010

    We were able to import astonishing large Moema cf. ortegai from Peru. The females are around 8 cm, the males around 12 cm long. This places them among the largest species of killifish known so far. The extremely large pectoral fins of the males are very impressive. However, the whole finneage of the males is […]

  • Aphyolebias peruensis

    27. July 2010

    This species from Peru represents one of the most beautiful species of killifish. It was known in the hobby for quite a long time under the name of Pterolebias peruensis. They are typical seasonal fishes. In the aquarium, they might become up to 1.5 years old, but in the wild they will never reach such […]

  • Guppy Venezuela Top Sword

    26. July 2010

    Since quite a long time we receive wild guppy types from one of our breeders. These wild types are much sought for, due to their brilliant colours, their lively temper and their perfect adaptability to almost any aquarium conditions. Under the name of guppy “Venezuela” recently wonderful fish in show size with top sword reached […]

  • Rivulus ornatus

    9. July 2010

    This tiny jewel among the fishes, which we were able to import from Peru recently, causes some confusion among taxonomists. It is possible that this fish represents a still undescribed species and will be named seperatly in the future. May this be as it wants, we are glad to have this pretty animal in stock […]

  • Aphyolebias schleseri

    24. June 2010

    A very unusual killi is Aphyolebias schleseri, which can be recognized by its unique sword. The species has been described only in 2003 and initially we thought it to be a new species of Micromoema. However, some members of the German killifish association (DKG) helped to trace the correct name. Once more: thank you guys! […]

  • Chapalichthys pardalis

    2. June 2010

    The Polkadot Goodeid, Chapalichthys pardalis, reaches a maximum length of 6.5 cm (males) and 7 cm (females).

    17. May 2010

    This week we were able to import a new sport of the Endler Guppy for the first time. Its bright contrasting yellow and black coloration will for sure excite the guppy enthusiasts. Regarding body shape and behaviour this new sport is a typical Endler Guppy (Poecilia wingei). This means it is a rather small fish […]

No commercial fishing for ornamental fish does […]

  • Priapella chamulae

    8. April 2010

    We obtained a good number of this quite rare livebearer from a German breeder. Priapella are specialized fish. The best known species in the hobby is for sure Priapella intermedia. Like this species, P. chamulae has brillant blue eyes. Priapella are schooling fish that live near the surface in brooks. These conditions, eg keeping in […]

  • Nomorhamphus liemi

    Nomorhamphus liemi

    30. March 2010

      This wonderfully coloured halfbeak originates from the island of Sulawesi ( = Celebes) where it occurs in the southern half.

In some species, however, is seems not so clear whether they belong […]

  • Poecilia reticulata Guppy Jamaica

    7. December 2009

    The guppy is one of the most important ornamental fishes. Besides the numerous cultivated varieties the wild forms become more and more popular in the hobby. We offer several of these wild forms, one of the most beautiful is the so-called Jamaica-variety. However, the fish are bred for us by professional breeders in Europe. In […]

  • Nothobranchius foerschi

    9. October 2009

    Nothobranchs (genus Nothobranchius) belong to the most colorful species of freshwater fish. This is true at least for the males, as female nothobranchs are all more or less unicolored. Nothobranchs are typical seasonal fish. They outlive the desiccation of their habitat with eggs that can survive without water almost unlimited. Nothobranchius furzeri is world famous […]

  • Poeciliopsis prolifica – Blackstripe livebearer

    22. September 2009

    This tiny species of livebearer originates from northwestern Mexico. The males reach a maximum length of 2 cm, the females of 3.5 cm. At the first glimpse the fish look somewhat unspectacular, but no one who keeps the fish has regrets about it. The whole day through the males are after the females or fight […]

  • Xenotoca variata – Jeweled splitfin

    21. September 2009

    Only few species of splitfin (Goodeidae) have become established aquarium fish, despite the fact that they are perfectly suited for keeping and breeding in tanks. Many species are in danger of extinction in the wild, for they inhabit only very small areas and habitat destruction can easily wipe out complete species. Species conservation via breeding […]

  • A new Panchax from Manipur

    17. September 2009

    After the spectacular importation of the new gourami from Manipur (http://www.aquarium-glaser.de/en/colisa-cf-fasciata-_en_1115.html) now we were able to import a beautiful new Panchax from this state in northern India.

  • Giradinus falcatus

    14. August 2009

    Aquarists usually think of the African killifishes of the genus Aplocheilichthys when they hear the term „lampeye fish“. However, there are also lampeyes among the livebearers! One of them is Giradinus falcatus. The shining eyes of the fish have the same sense as in their African cousins: they are used to keep the school together. […]

  • Beautiful new varieties of liverbearers arrived

    10. July 2009

    This week we received from specialised breeders in Asia five new, breathtaking varieties of livebearers. One circumstance makes this a little sensation: four of the new varieties belong to the species Micropoecilia parae, which is regarded as almost impossible to keep and breed over generations in aquaria.

    Three colour varieties of  M. parae display two horizontal stripes over the body. Between these stripes is another, brillantly colored stripe in red, yellow or blue. We offer these varieties assorted. This form has been described scientifically in 1909 as Acanthophacelus melanzonus. Thus the breeder has added the term „melanzonus“ to these three sports. Scientifically speaking A. melanzonus is regarded currently as a synonym of M. parae.

    The fourth  variety of M. parae has vertical stripes on the flanks, which are red and black. The females of all varieties mentioned exactly look the same.

    Last but not least we received a new selection of wild-type guppys which is named „Three Spots“ by the breeder. This ancient guppy type is also a real eyeburner and an ideal fish for any community tank with small and peaceful tankmates.

    Micropoecilia and guppy are not closely related and can never be crossed.

    Text & photos: Frank Schäfer
    Lexicon: Micropoecilia: means „small Poecilia“. Poecilia is another genus of livebearers. parae: means „coming from Para“. Para is a Brazilian state. Melanzonus: means „with black zones“ according to the two horizontal black stripes. Acanthophacelus: means „cluster of needles“; in respect of the microstructure of the male´s sexual organ, the gonopodium. Synonym: Synonyms are different words with identical meanings. If a species is named scientifically twice or more often, the eldest available name is the vaild one. The other name(s) are considered to be synonym(s) without validity.

  • Ilyodon whitei

    10. July 2009

    The genus Ilyodon currently comprises 4 or 5 species (the status of I. lennoni is under discussion). Like all livebearing members of the family Goodeidae (splitfins) they are restricted to the highlands of Mexico. Ilyodon whitei lives in the upper tributaries of the Rio Balsas on the Pacific slope of Mexico. The peaceful and elegant […]

  • Xiphophorus hellerii Platin Orange

    8. July 2009

    Xiphophorus hellerii Platin Orange: The latest sport in swordtails is this gorgeous variety. In swordtails exists an interesting gentic phenomenon. The gene for „albino“can be combined with body colours, if the body colours derive from a cross with platyfish. A real albino swordtail has red eyes and a whitish body. In the Platin Orange swordtail […]

  • Aphyosemion celiae celiae

    10. June 2009

    Killifishes of the genus Aphyosemion are among the most colorful fishes of the World. They become only a few centimetres long (in the case of Aphyosemion celiae: about 5 cm).
