    Actually in small numbers available: Sicyopus zosterophorum. This loach is coming from the Pinang river in the western part of Sumatra. Until now they were not imported in big numbers, so we do not know much about keeping them. But an experienced hobbyist should not be faced with big problems with keeoping this item.

    Boleophthalmus boddarti

    1. July 2007

    These beautiful mudskippers from West Bengal (India) are somewhat sensitive and are therefore only occasionally imported. A well-established brackwater aquarium with a water level between 5-10 cm is needed for the successful keeping of these fish. When water conditions are not kept optimally these fish will soon suffer from signs of intoxication. All mudskippers need […]
