Oryzias latipes

3. June 2014

The Japanese Ricefish or Medaka is the typical pet of the Japanese scientists that work on genetics. Uncountable numbers of scientific papers exist about this fish. Nevertheless the wild type of Medaka is a top rarity in the ornamental fish trade. We now managed to obtain for the first time ever a wild type of Medaka from a breeder. The glittering scales of the fish are very obvious. O. latipes can reach a maximum length of about 4 cm and can be even kept in garden ponds in mild climates.

For our customers: the animals have code 339752 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
