  • Glyptoperichthys parnaibae

    25. May 2022

    For the first time ever we can offer Glyptoperichthys parnaibae, so far known exclusively from the Rio Parnaiba in Brazil. The Rio Parnaiba is located in the northeast of Brazil and has a high proportion of endemic, i.e. only there occurring fish species, because there is no connection to other river systems.

  • Macrognathus maculatus

    23. May 2022

    Spiny eels enjoy an increasing popularity. More and more aquarists are discovering that it is not always the colorful, constantly visible fish that are fun to watch, but also the more hidden fish personalities that are often only seen when feeding.

    20. May 2022

    The dwarf cichlid Apistogramma agassizii has a distribution area that extends through practically the entire Amazon. With many of its genus comrades it is completely different, they often occur only locally and form then also location variants.

  • Platydoras armatulus

    20. May 2022

    The snarling zebra catfish – this is how Platydoras armatulus could be popularly called. However, it is actually called the striped raphael catfish.

  • Triportheus rotundatus

    13. May 2022

    The strange narrow hatchetfish of the genus Triportheus belong to the flying fishes of freshwater.

The fish are predominantly silvery colored and grow to about 15 cm in length, which is why they are […]
