From Indonesia have received once again Neon Blueeye under the name Pseudomugil paskai. The first Neon Blueeye, the “Red Neon” (P. luminatus), was a sensation (see https://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archives/pseudomugil_cf_paskai_red_neon_en/) and also the yellow variant is beautiful (see https://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archives/pseudomugil_cf_paskai_en/).
Now we have obtained a third variant, which this time best corresponds to the “real” P. paskai, also a beautiful little animal. However, experts agree that this is also a color variant of P. luminatus, which we call P. luminatus “Blue” on our stock list. In contrast to the two previously imported forms, the Blue is much more surface oriented and almost always swims just below the water surface.
For our customers: the animals have code 446463 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesale.
