    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).

  • 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 sp. Red Fin Peru

    Hyphessobrycon sp. Red Fin Peru

    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. Its body colouring looks a bit like a crossbreeding of three-banded-tetra (Hyphessobrycon heterorhabdus) and the black neon tetra (Hyphesobrycon herbertaxelrodi). This tetra has also got the red upper […]

  • Potamotrygon sp. „Maracaibo Ghost“

    Potamotrygon sp. „Maracaibo Ghost“

    6. July 2007

    The ghost of Maracaibo. So a novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez could be named, here however it is about a newly imported ray. Few specimen of these with Potamotrygon yepezi related species reached us last week from Venezuela. There they inhabit muddy bank sections in shallow, clouded waters in the supplies of lake Maracaibo. They […]

  • Epiplatys bifasciatus

    6. July 2007

    September 2000: At the moment, we can offer the Epiplatys bifasciatus. These approximately 5-6 cm long growing killifishes come from Guinea in West-Africa. There, they live in small savanna-brooks and swamps. No big aquariums are required for keeping of this fish, they should notbe socialized with active species since they can then become quite shy. […]

  • 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 […]

  • Panaque cochliodon

    6. July 2007

    December 2005: After years when no Panaque cochliodon (Panaque suttoni, P. suttonorum) were imported, now again few individuals reach us. Whether environmental problems or the civil war in parts of Colombia are responsible for their non appearence, can not be judged from a distance. We are glad to see this in former times not rare […]
