We received once more the fantastic Moenkhausia agnesae from Peru. This is a larger species that can be kept ideally along with cichlids and catfish. Maximum length reported from M. agnesae is about 8 cm.
Formerly this species has been often confused with M. simulata. However, the horizontal stripes in M. simulata are all black, whereas in M. agnesae these stripes are reddish in the upper portions of the body.
For our customers: the fish have code 268575 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
