We have received beautiful wild collectes animals of this larvophile maternal mouth-breeding cichlid from Paraguay (i.e. the female incubates the larvae in her mouth, while the animals spawn on stones etc. and take care for the eggs here like open-breeding cichlid until they hatch). With only scarcely 9 cm of standard length (with tail fin thus at most 12 cm in total length), Gymnogeophagus caaguazuensis is one of the smallest species of the genus. We can offer it in two sizes: 5-8 cm (hardly sexually mature), 8-12 cm (showsize).
For our customers: the fish have code 676752 (5-8 cm) and 676754 (8-12 cm) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
