    Tetraodon baileyi

    6. July 2007

    (05.Feb.2008) At present we can offer Tetraodon baileyi in an outstanding constitution and by pair! Please note that the females do not show any fluffs. The cute appearance of T.baileyi, originates from the Mekong river system in Indochina, should however not hide their predatory character, since they can “clear up” in a “community aquarium” enormously.

There are some reports existing about a successful maintenace in groups, but socialisation is always a little bit risky for such hazardous fishes and their […]
