  • Diskus Royal Blue/Rio Moju

    6. July 2007

    If an increase of beauty and charisma of the at 01.02.06 introduced Diskus variant Red Inferno/Rio Moju is still possible, then by the Royal Blues originating from the same river. When first seeing these fishes I remembered the headline of an old “aquarien magazin” article. In January 1972 Eduard Schmidt Focke a famous german discus […]

  • Pterophyllum altum deutsche Nachzucht

    Pterophyllum altum german bred

    6. July 2007

    November 2003: Lately we received German bred Pterophllyum altum. It is worth mentioning that this was a natural brood, eg both parent took care for eggs and the young. Even spawning of the Altum Angel is a remarkeble event. This species tends to get panic attacks when the fish is fully grown. Thus they tend […]

  • Diskus Semi royal, Rio Moju

  • Tahuantinsuyoa macantzatza

    Tahuantinsuyoa macantzatza

    6. July 2007

    The unpronounceable from the Incas empire. So an article about Tahuantinsuyoa macantzatza the Inca Stone Fish could be titled. After fearing over years that they had become extinct, we succeeded to import a larger number of them at the beginning of 2003. For the first time we can offer now both: very beautiful wild caught […]

  • Heros severus

    Heros severus

    6. July 2007

    Despite the fact that Heros severus is the type species of the Heros genus, this species is the most uncharacteristic representative of this group. This is mainly caused by its reproducing behaviour, which is mouthbreeding and untypical for Heros, because they are all substrate breeding. Also the coloration is different from the other members of […]

    Geophagus sp. „Pindare“

    6. July 2007

    Among the “Eartheaters”, species Geophagus, G. sp. “Pindare” is one of the most recommendable ones. Growing up to approx. 15cm only, it stays rather small and also shows a beautiful marking with red and blue lines on its flanks. The care of this species is really quite simple, because it does not care about the […]
