We received from Brazil very nice, wild collected flag cichlids. M. festivus is usually not kept due to its coloration, which is not very spectacular, but due to the interesting and peaceful behaviour.
But the animals that reached us now have a very interesting, blue pattern in the face. The scales also show an attractive blue shine. Moreover – this is of course not visible on the pictures – the fish are very curious and tame. Mesonauta usually are rather shy during the phase of acclimatization.
For our customers: the fish have code 683335 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!
Lexicon: Mesonauta: composed from the words for “middle” and “sailor”; the meaning of the name is unknown. festivus: means “pretty”.
