Bryconalestes longipinnis

9. March 2018

The African Longfin Tetra (Bryconalestes longipinnis, = Brycinus longipinnis) is a classic ornamental fish from Nigeria; we have it almost anytime in stock. Usually the fish traded are 3-5 cm long, which means that they are about half grown (maximum size reported for that species is 16 cm, but this is as rare as a 2.3 m tall human being). This has good reasons: at that size the fish can be best transported and they easily adapt to new conditions. Currently we have grown some specimens for a project in a 4.000 litre tank. They became real beauties!

For our customers: the fish have code 105505 on or stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Only very few specimens available!
