    Chaetostoma pearsei L 187

    6. July 2007

    This Chaetostoma species is imported in regular intervals from the upper Orinoco through Puerto Ayacucho. This catfish is very difficult to differentiate from L 147 and L 188. L 188 has often described in the literature as C. nudirostre. C. pearsi lives in fast streaming mountain brooks and therefore needs in the aquarium oxygen rich […]

  • Hemichromis sp. Bangui

    Hemichromis sp. Bangui

    6. July 2007

    Red Cichlids of the species Hemichromis are generelly regarded as aggressive, but this prejudice is based on past years, when 160 ltr tanks were considered to be bathtubs and you mostly had to be satisfied with 60 ltr aquariums. To keep them in pairs, an aquarium of this size is in fact sufficient for Hemichromis […]

  • Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda

    Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda

    6. July 2007

The Moluccan-horseshoe crab that is being presented, comes from southeast Asia and lives in coastal ranges from […]

  • Platy variatus „Highfin Orange“

    Platy variatus „Highfin Orange“

    6. July 2007

    This Highfin Platy certainly belongs to the most beautiful new breds of the last time. The flowing transition from scarlet to yellow and its enlarged backfin makes it’s attraction. Since it doesn’t differ from other Platys in it’s keeping demands, it will certainly become a gain in der Aquaristik.
