Within the genus Uaru only two species are scientifically distinguished at present: U. amphiacanthoides and U. fernandezyepezi. However, there are different local variants of U. amphiacanthoides, which differ in the size and position of the lateral spot. Right now we can offer wonderful, large and three-quarter sized wild catches from the Rio Negro in Brazil.
Additionally we have juvenile Uaru amphiacanthoides offspring. Only few cichlids change their colouring so drastically during growth as the triangle cichlid, Uaru amphiacanthoides. By the way, Uaru are close relatives of the discus cichlids and are very similar in behaviour. However, Uaru are mainly vegetarians.
For our customers: the offspring (4-6 cm) have code 688502, the wildcatch 12-15 cm have code 688516 and the wildcatch 16-20 cm have code 688518 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply the wholesale trade.
