Only rather rarely – every few years – and if, then always in the summer months June-July-August, we receive Hyphessobrycon socolofi from Brazil, in which the back shines conspicuously green; besides, the second cherry-red spot on the tail root is colored particularly intensively red with these animals. We have been observing this phenomenon for many years. We have not found an explanation yet.
In any case they are beautiful animals, an enrichment for every aquarium with peaceful fish!
For our customers: the animals have code 261994 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesale.
