    The 5 species of the genus Crossoloricaria are all looking very similar to the flounder Loricariid genus Pseudohemiodon. These fish have as well a flattened body form, small eyes lying distally on the triangularly formed head. The difference between these two genii is the missing of the ventral bony plates of Crossoloricaria. Only at the […]

    6. July 2007

    This fish is an extreme attractive tetra of the species Hyphessobrycon. There is no exact scientific definition of this kind yet, which grows up to 50mm minimum.

  • 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 […]
