  • Lepomis megalotis

    23. September 2010

    Sunfishes belong to the most colourful species of coldwater fish. The most widespread species in the hobby is Lepomis gibbosus, but the genus comprises not less than 12 species. Lepomis megalotis is native from NE-Mexico to the Great Lakes in the US and is additionally introduced in many countries. Up to six subspecies have been […]

  • Enneacanthus gloriosus

    27. August 2010

    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 along the […]

  • Toxotes sp. New!

    10. February 2010

    A new species of Archerfish! Recently we received a shipment containing archerfishes (Toxotes) from Thailand. Most of the shipment were T. jaculatrix (see http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/toxotes-jaculatrix_en_1076.html) and some T. chatareus (see http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/toxotes-chatareus_en_1044.html). But a closer look showed also four specimens of an unique colored archerfish, which we have never seen so far and which fits to none […]

  • Etroplus maculatus

    23. October 2009

    The Indian cichlid, Etroplus maculatus, is a very popular aquarium fish and never disappeared after its first importation again. Recent research suggests that Etroplus is not a close relative of the cichlid family, but rather of the damselfishes (Pomacentridae). However that does not mean anything for the hobby. Etroplus maculatus can be kept and bred […]

  • Lepomis gibbosus

    15. April 2009

    The pumpkinseed (Lepomis gibbosus) is one of the most beautiful coldwater fishes. Moreover it has a very interesting behaviour. The species originates from central parts of the North American continent. The continental climate (hot summers, cold winters) makes the pumkinseed a hardy fish and so it was transferred by humans to many regions as a […]

  • Toxotes jaculatrix

    12. February 2009

    Seven species of Archerfishes (Toxotes) are known. Three of them (T. lorentzi and T. kimberleyensis from Australia and T. microlepis from South East Asia) are usually found in fresh water. Two are practically unknown, at least they have not been kept in aquaria so far: T. blythi from Burma and T. oligolepis from the Moluccas. […]

  • Toxotes chatareus

    31. January 2008

    (31.Jan.2008) Archerfish from pure freshwater? Is this real? Yes, if you buy them from Aquarium Glaser! We are lucky to have a supplier who is catching this fish for us personally. This man is fishing them infront of a waterfall. This means they simply do not have any connection to the sea;not even to brackish […]

  • Etheostoma fusiforme

    Etheostoma fusiforme

    6. July 2007

    October 2003: This week we received a limited number of Etheosoma fusiforme. These goby-like perches are also called Darters and originates from North America. Darter males inspire during the courtship with beautiful colors. During the summer months this species can be held also in the domestic garden pond. (Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)

  • Micropterus salmoides

    6. July 2007

    Something special for your pond. The Largemouth Bass originates from the eastern part of the United States where they occur from the Canadian border down to Mexico. In the meantime they were spread in numerous countries as game fish and can therefore be found also in Europe. They prefer quiet, well warmed waters without a […]
