    We can just offer wonderful, full-grown German offspring of the largest bubblenest building fighting fish: Betta simorum.

  • Colisa chuna

    14. October 2019

    Colisa chuna The coloration of the honey gurami, Colisa chuna, is unique among the freshwater fish of the world and also among the labyrinth fish, to which the honey gurami belongs. All other Colisa species have a pattern of vertical stripes, only the honey gurami has no such pattern. In neutral mood the animals are […]

  • Betta splendens Pla Kat Halfmoon Galaxy Candy

    9. September 2019

    Sometimes you don’t know what to admire more: the breeding skills of Betta freaks or their creativity in inventing new names. However, these candies are real beauties; each animal is individually patterned and spotted, so they are unique! Our dear friend Kamphol has sent us an exclusive collection of these beauties from Thailand. For our […]

  • Channa aurantimaculata GERMAN BRED

    4. September 2019

    Currently we can offer beautiful offspring of one of the most beautiful Channa species: Channa aurantimaculata. The species originates from the north of India, where it can sometimes get quite cool. Therefore the summerly care of the up to 50 cm long animals (normally they become in the nature, however, only 20-25 cm long) in […]

  • Macropodus spechti

    13. August 2019

    Once again we managed to import a Macropodus form from Vietnam which cannot be clearly assigned. Unfortunately nothing can be found out about the original location. Some years ago we had been able to import similar animals, also from Vietnam, but they had a strong bronze shine on their body, which is missing in the […]

  • Macropodus opercularis Albino

    9. August 2019

    About 80 years ago, a German breeder found by chance an albinotic paradise fish among  a brood of normal siblings. The breeder was successful in rearing the fish and this animal became the ancestor of all albinotic paradise fish known today. However, breeding albinotic paradise fish is not that easy and so they always were […]

  • Dario hysginon “Black Tiger”

    26. July 2019

    We have the cute Flame Red dwarf badis (Dario hysginon) quite regularly in the stock. It originates from Burma (drainage of the Irrawaddy, Myitkyina District, Kachin State).

  • Trichogaster leerii

    26. June 2019

    The Pearl Gourami (Trichogaster leerii) is an absolute classic among the ornamental fish. The species is always available in the petshops all over the world and they are usually quite cheap. These traded fish are bred ones. Wild collected ones are hardly ever offered; the species is endangered in the wild, because the habitats become […]

  • Colisa fasciata wild

    13. June 2019

    Actually, nobody knows exactly what Colisa fasciata is; because the specimen on which the first description is based was lost in the turmoil of the French Revolution and where it is supposed to come from (Tranquebar in the south of India) there are no gourami at all. That’s why everything that isn’t Colisa lalia, C. […]
