parilus is a species of dwarf cichlid that originates from the Congo
region. Usually we offer this species as wild collected ones. But
currently we found a breeder that can supply us with fully grown, very
healthy, gorgeous animals.
is quite interesting that among these bred fishes two types of males
appear. Some males have a red pattern in the lower part of the caudal
fin, others not. Formerly it was thought among aquarists that these
differences in caudal fin pattern could be used to separate N. parilus
from a closely related species, namely N. nudiceps. However, nowadays we
know that N. nudiceps has an overall different look.
our customers: the bred N. parilus have code 554584 on our stocklist.
Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
