  • Danio kyathit

    Danio kyathit

    6. July 2007

    The Burma-leopard-Danio, Danio kyathit, (“Kyathit”, burmese for leopard) belongs to the many minnows, which came to Europe in a bigger number of pieces lately. We first saw this beautiful “new” Danio in the beginning of 2002 at AQUARIUM GLASER. In contrast to Danio rerio Daniokyathit is much more colourful. Both sexes show intensive orange-red, beautifully […]

  • Tanichthys albonubes „Gold“

    6. July 2007

    Tanichthys albonubes “Gold” is a selection of the well-known White Cloud or White Cloud Mountain Minnow. They were imported since the end of the 30's of the past century and were called at that time “Working Man's Neon” or the “Poor Man's Neon”. This referred on the one hand to its attractive colouring, otherwise it […]

  • Corydoras ephippifer

    Corydoras ephippifer

    6. July 2007

    This true mailed catfish species was imported from Belem (Brazil).

    February 2006: We are pleased to be able to offer you the first offspring of a legend. Now offspring of the recently again discovered and in the last year for the first time to Germany imported Corydoras weitzmani are available. Fortunately this beautiful small, at Corydoras panda reminding species, could quite fast be spawned by […]

  • Platy variatus „Highfin Orange“

    Platy variatus „Highfin Orange“

    6. July 2007

    This Highfin Platy certainly belongs to the most beautiful new breds of the last time. The flowing transition from scarlet to yellow and its enlarged backfin makes it’s attraction. Since it doesn’t differ from other Platys in it’s keeping demands, it will certainly become a gain in der Aquaristik.

  • Boulengerella sp. aff. lucius

    Boulengerella sp. aff. lucius

    6. July 2007

    Especially at the juvenile stage there seem to exist different colour variants of Boulengerella lucius. And it is doubtful if it really is Boulengerella lucius, which is why also this kind is being offered as B. sp. aff. lucius. This form of pike imported from Peru does not distinguish in the care, so tanks with […]

  • Crossoloricaria cf cephalaspis

    Crossoloricaria cf cephalaspis

    6. July 2007

    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 […]

  • Ancistomus sabaji L124 „Big Spot“

    6. July 2007

    Ancistomus sabaji – Hypostomus spec., Peckoltia spec.? A fish with many names! There is hardly another L number catfish where the confusion regarding the nomenclature is as large as with this species. This is a result of the generous allocation of numbers (L 75, L 124, L 301 and LDA 2) for this fish. One […]

  • Hypostomus luteus

    Hypostomus luteus

    6. July 2007

    From southern Brazil and northern Argentina originates the probably most beautiful representative of the genus Hypostomus. Contrary to many other loricariids they become more beautiful with increasing age, since the portion of the yellow body parts constantly increases. Their southern area of origin suggests a tolerance in relation to low temperatures. They can be can […]

  • Panaque spec. „New Royal Golden Thunder“

    6. July 2007

    September 2006: This week we succeeded in importing several of this beautiful new Panaque from Brazil. In their appearance they remind of L 27, are however flatter and slimmer than these. In addition they possess a larger mouth and their dorsal fin is smaller. These characteristics let assume that they originate from strongly flowing river […]

    6. July 2007

    From the coastal ranges of the western Africa between Senegal and Angola originates the freshwater goby Awaous lateristriga. The animal introduced here reminds strongly of this species, whether it is identical to it could yet not be determined. With an overall length of approx. 30 cm Awaous lateristriga belongs to the larger gobys. In their […]

    March 2007: From the environment of Lubumbashi, the second largest city the Congo comes Gnathonemus longibarbis to us.

  • Retroculus lapidifer

    Retroculus lapidifer

    6. July 2007

    To take sensibly care of Retroculus lapidifer, which comes from Rio Tocantins/Rio Araguaia catchment area, you should own quariums with a base of 150 x 60cm minimum, as this species can grow very big (25-30cm). But despite its size you should not socialize it with aggressive cichlids, because it has only a certain self-assertion among […]

  • Brotia pagodula

    Brotia pagodula

    6. July 2007

    (28.Nov.2007) From Southeast Asia we got a still rarely traded snail species. Brotia pagodula is a live-bearing snail, as an endemic species it can be found only in the Moei, a river between Myanmar and Thailand. Their strongly wound house, provided with numerous spikes, gives them a bizzare appearance. On the search for algae they […]
