  • Monodactylus argenteus

    20. January 2014

    Are you planning already your tanks for the upcoming year? Maybe you try a brackish water tank? A large aquarium with a school of monos (Monodactylus argenteus) is a real eyecatcher and a perfect opportunity to learn about all the other interesting species that like it a bit salty.

  • Datnioides microlepis

    Datnioides microlepis

    16. July 2013

    Finally we were able to import once more the most beautiful species of tiger perch, the Indonesian Tiger Fish. These large growing predators can reach a maximum length around 50 cm and are wonderful show fish for large aquaria. But our imports are still young, 4-6 cm long. There are two populations of this perch, […]

  • Etroplus canarensis

    19. September 2012

  • Etroplus canarensis

    19. September 2012

    Only three kinds of cichlids are found in Asia, all of them belong to the species Etroplus. But many scientists believe that Etroplus are closer to damsels than to cichlids. However, all three kinds are marvelous aquarium fish. Two of them, E.macultus and E. suratensis are wide spread. There was no trace of E. canarensis […]

  • Sunfish special!

    24. April 2012

    Enneacanthus gloriosus The Bluespotted Sunfish (Enneacanthus gloriosus) is a coldwater fish and a real oldtimer among aquarium fish. Aquarists used to name the up to 7.5 cm long fish “working class discus”, due to its brillant colours and the nice behaviour. However, it was never as expensive as the discus. Bluespotted Sunfish occur in nature […]

  • Sillaginopsis panijus

    25. January 2011

    The difference between “foodfish” and “ornamental fish” is often hard to tell. For example, who in Europe would term the zebra barb (Danio rerio) a foodfish? Nevertheless hundreds of thousands of these tiny animals are collected daily in India, become dried and are sold as a spice. On the other hand young examples of attractive […]

  • Plagioscion squamosissimus

    10. January 2011

    Croakers, also called Drums (Sciaenidae) are a fish family that comprises about 290 species. Most of them are marine, but some occur exclusively in fresh water. In South America about 20 species and 4 genera are known to live in fresh water. The smallest among them becomes only 7 cm long (Pachypops pigmaeus), most become […]

  • Centropomus unionensis

    7. December 2010

    The snooks (Centropomus) are distributed in the New World; currently 12 species are recognized. Persons that are reminiscent of giant perches (Lates) by looking at snooks are not wrong: until quite recently the snooks and the giant perches were united in a single family, Centropomidae. We were now able to import a pretty species of […]

  • Omobranchus zebra

    Omobranchus zebra

    1. December 2010

    Omobranchus belongs to the Blenniidae family, most of which live in marine environments. Due to their funny behaviour and the generally easy keeping the blennies are favorite fish of the marine hobbyists. There are only very few species that settle permanently in fresh or brackish water. One of the latter is the pretty Omobranchus zebra, […]
