of the endemic species of cichlid from the island of Madagascar are
endangered of extinction. This is due to destruction of the natural
environments and the release of foreign fish species for food purposes.
Sadly most of the Madagascar cichlids could not yet established as
aquarium fish. An exception from that rule is the splendid Paratilapia
polleni. The juveniles still look rather drab coloured, but in a large
tank they will develop to breathtaking beauties – try it out!
For our customers: the fish have code 559051 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
