We received charming Pyrrhulina tetras from Peru, which most probably belong to the species P. brevis. Even on the day of their arrival the fish showed a lot of red colours. But when the males came in breeding mood in the photo-tank and started to quarrel they became even more colorful. At a glimpse on the scales developed deep red spots, which were hardly visible before. Females don´t get these spots at all.
Despite that fact that the males are quarreling quite a lot these quarrels are harmless and don´t even lead to fin damage. Currently our fish are about 3 cm long.
For our customers: the fish have code 286752 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Pyrrhulina means: Little bullfinch. brevis: Latin, means “short”.
Suggestion of a common name: Red Spotted Pyrrhulina
