  • Mastacembelus greshoffi

    6. July 2007

    Some time ago we could import Mastacembelus greshoffi from the Congo. Here we have a spiny eel getting approximately 35 cm long, which occurs over rocky bottoms in rivers and lakes, also in rapids. Spiny eels are intelligent fish, they show a multiplicity of interesting behaviours. They also can become amazing tame and eat then […]

  • Dario hysginon

    Dario hysginon

    6. July 2007

    Compared with Dario dario this species is hardly known by the general aquarists, although the males who obtain and guard their territory are looking very beautiful. Although they do not display the coloration like D. dario, they definitely show the same intense red colour. Unfortenately D. hysginon only shows his full colour when he is […]

  • Pelvicachromis taeniatus „Lokundje“

    6. July 2007

    From Pelvicachromis taeniatus are numerous variants and local forms existing in the western parts of Africa. One of the most beautiful variants is surely Pelvicachromis taeniatus „Lokundje “(a river in the south of Cameroon). At the moment we can offer very beautiful breds from the same breeder as the already introduced Apistogramma agassizi „Fire Red […]

  • Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda

    Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda

    6. July 2007

    Horseshoe crabs are rightfully described as living fossils, because their ancesters populated the warm flat seas about 500 million years ago.The description of the horseshoe crab is misleading because their next relatives are arachnids and not the crabs. The Moluccan-horseshoe crab that is being presented, comes from southeast Asia and lives in coastal ranges from […]

  • Barbus congicus

    6. July 2007

    The Congo Barb is a rarely traded ornamental fish. As you can see by their name Barbus congicus originates from the Congo river in Central Africa. With a length of 7 – 8 cm it belongs to the medium sized barbs and should, according to its vivaciousness, not be maintained in to small aquariums. With […]

  • Danio aesculapii (=Danio sp. „Pantherinus“)

    6. July 2007

    These minnows originate from Burma, does not grow over 4 cm and is therefore the smallest representative of the Danio genus. But now this beautiful barb fish has been imported by Aquarium Glaser and is now available for the dedicated aquarium hobbyist. As with all representatives of the Danio family, D. sp.„Pantherinus“ is a schooling […]

  • 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 […]

  • Hyphessobrycon sp. Blau-Roter Perusalmler

    Hyphessobrycon sp. Blue Red Peru

    6. July 2007

    Once again we could discover a new and very beautiful tetra at AQUARIUM GLASER several months ago. It should be another undefined tetra species (from Peru), probably a type of Hyphessobrycon. The fish were almost full-grown and the sexes rather sure to distinguish. We bought three pairs, which got used to our aquarium conditions without […]

  • Hypancistrus spec. „Belo Monte“ (L 287, L 399, L 400)

    6. July 2007

    The denomination of this beautiful Hypancistrus is still disputed. It run long time under the number L 287, so it is named on our stock list. Recently it is called L 399 and/or L 400, the origin is the Rio Xingu, where it gets caught in the neighbourhood of Belo Monte. This species belongs into […]
