happens only rarely that a wild form of livebearer is kept continuously
over decades by hobbyists. This is understandable if one takes a look
on the immense number of colourful sports that do exist from guppy,
platy, molly & co.. So, if a wild form is able to compete with them
it is without any doubt a colourful fish. Poecilia melanogaster is one
of these species. It originates from Jamaica, but only bred ones are
available from time to time. Although even P. melanogaster can be found
only occasionally in the pet shops: if it appears there they will be
sold out soon again!
For our customers: the fish have code 424733 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
