We were able to import the wooddrift catfish Tatia dunni for the first time in 2010 (see http://www.aquariumglaser.de/en/fish-archives/tatia_dunni_en/). Animals from this stock were given to one of our breeders, Jürgen Hattenberger. Sadly he died unexpected a few weeks ago. Jürgen was able to establish a breeding stock from the first importation and since then we obtained from time to time bred T. dunni from him. He also developed a pale strain from these fish he called T. dunni „White“.
We now received from the closing of the fishhouse of J. Hattenberger both „normal“ bred T. dunni as well as white ones. We hope that the interesting white strain will be preserved in the aquarium hobby.
For our customers: the fish have code 295697 (normal) and 295698 (white) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
