We received gorgeous, large Sturisoma robustum from Paraguay and the quirky S. nigrirostrum from Peru. In the Peruvian Whiptail S. nigrirostrum the male developes an upturned “nose”. The sense of this feature is unknown. For more information on S. robustum, please click http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archive/catfish-en/loricariidae-en/_en-3/.
For our customers: Sturisoma robustum has codes 294874 (12-15 cm) and 294875 (14-18 cm), S. nigrirostrum has code 294854 (12-15 cm) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
