We have obtained a small number of this very unusual loricariid from Brazil. “Technically” speaking, they belong to the species P. aurantiacus. The species is famous for the fact that they can be bright golden, marbled or black colored and it is documented that they can change the colours in comparatively short time. This phenomenon is also observable in our specimens. The fish are currently 8-12 cm long. The photographed specimens are males and have reached full maturity already.
For our customers: the animals have code 26480-L 056X-3 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in very limited numbers only!
