Pseudosphromenus dayi

14. November 2018

The red spike-tail is a classic among the aquarium fish and is and is not missing in any manual of ornamental fish science before the Second World War. But its origin was always mysterious, the original description from the year 1909 was based on aquarium imports. Today it has become quiet around him and his close relatives from Sri Lanka, Malpulutta kretseri, since the initially often shy animals in the pet shop are obviously difficult to present attractively. That’s why red spike-tails are currently almost completely extinct in the hobby.

We are therefore very pleased to be able to offer this pretty, small (4-5 cm) and absolutely peaceful labyrinth fish, which likes to build its foam nest in caves or under plant leaves, from Kerala in South India as a wild catch.

For our customers: the animals have code 446602 on our stocklist. Please note that we only supply wholesalers.
