  • Cynopotamus atratoensis

    Cynopotamus atratoensis

    6. July 2007

    Only three of these predatory characins found their way to Aquarium Glaser. This group of characins form the subfamily Cynopotaminae within the family of real American characins (Characidae). The representatives of this subfamily are relatively large fish, which can reach a total length between 15 and 30 cm in adulthood. Cynopotamus have large mouth openings […]

  • Brittanichthys myersi

    6. July 2007

    This interesting, rarely traded characin species origins from the Rio Negro area. B. myersi is a genuine black water fish, which should be kept best at pH values of 4,5 – 6 and a very low water hardness. A filtering over peat can be very helpful, apart from the improvement of the chemical parameters the […]

  • Spatuloricaria sp. Magdalena

    6. July 2007

    We imported some of these very much pleasing Loricarian species from Columbia. Like most of the Spatuloricaria species it can become quite large, however they probably will not reach the described 40-50cm like other species. Since they already exhibit the typical secondary sex characteristics (men with “beard”), they might exceed their present size of approx. […]

  • Hyphessobrycon cf. loweae

    Hyphessobrycon cf. loweae

    6. July 2007

    It was illustrated on the homepage of Canadian fish exporter “Below Water” and designated as “Kitty” Tetra (“a new Hemigrammus-species, caught in Mato Grosso in November 2000). It is presented as Hyphessobrycon loweae in the February/March-issue of “Aquaristik Fachmagazin & Aquarium heute”. According to Dr. Géry there are “good correspondences” with Hyphessobrycon loweae (Costa & […]

  • 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 […]

  • Cochliodon spec. var. marbled L 360a

    6. July 2007

    From the drainage basin of the Tapajos arrived a new, until now not imported loricariid catfish at our facility. Body form and yellow fin seams remind strongly of L 360, the body and parts of the fins however exhibit a veining atypical for L 360. In their maintenance requirements they might probably not differ from […]

  • Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus L 1, L 22

    6. July 2007

    Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus the “White Spot – Glycopterichthys” originates from the Rio Araguaia, one of the main tributaries of the Rio Tocantins in Brazil. There it inhabits different habitats, it was found e.g. on deadwood and also on flooded meadows. Natural water conditions (white water) do not have to be copied for maintenance, L 1 are […]

  • Panaque spec.

    6. July 2007

    June 2006: Just freshly arrived! Also for „old stagers“ there are again and again genuine surprises with us. In a shipment from Peru we received today several particularly delicate Loricariids, which represent a petite alternative to the frequently maintained Hypancistrus species. However their size of (50 – 70 cm) probably exceeds the possibilities of most […]

  • Polypterus teugelsi

    6. July 2007

    From the Cross River system in Cameroon originates Polypterus teugelsi. This 2004 scientifically described species could be imported in this spring for the first time. They exhibit a black network, which covers an olive background on the dorsal and dorsolateral surface of the body. This and their brightly orange colored belly are singular in bichirs. […]

  • Synbranchus marmoratus

    Synbranchus marmoratus

    6. July 2007

    As a beauty in the conventional sense Synbranchus marmoratus can not be chracterised, but even the extraordinary has its attraction. At the moment we can offer beside swamp eels in „normal“ sizes a giant of approximately 1 m length. Of course a predator of this size should not be kept together with small „food fishes […]
