Polypterus mokelembembe


Bichirs are so-called living fossils. 60 million years old fossilizations are known
which can be assigned to recent species! There are 16 recent species known so far,
all of them originating from Africa.

The latest discovered species is also the smallest one: Polypterus mokelembembe was
described in 2006. Formely the species was confused with P. retropinnis. P.
mokelembembe inhabits smaller blackwater creeks in the Congo region and grows up to
25 cm long. Males and females can be distinguished quite easily, as it is the case in
all Polypterus. The anal fin of the males is more than double sized compared with the
anal fin of the female. This fin is spread and looks like a bowl when the fish spawn.
During mating the male swims closely side-by-side with the female and surrounds the
female´s anal fin region with the spread anal fin. The eggs, wich are spawned free in
the water, are thus collected in the males anal fin what makes sure they become
fertalized. Polypterus do not take care for their brood. The juveniles have external
gills and look very much alike newts.


Polypterus mokelembembe is peaceful against all possible tankmates as long as they
cannot be regarded as food. The fish do not like strong light. They feed readily on
all frozen and live food as long as it is of animal origin.

For our customers: the fish have code 165533 on our stocklist.Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.


Lexicon: Polypterus: ancient Greek, means "with many fins", referring to the numerous
dorsal finlets. mokelembembe: name of a legendary monster with a dinosaur-like
appearance said to live in the Congo, comparable with Nessie from Loch Ness. The name
was chosen as an allusion to the old age of bichirs, which were existing already at
the times of dinosaurs. retropinnis: Latin, means "with fins turned backwards".

Suggestion of a popular name: Jungle bichir

Lucania goodei 


Once more we were able to stock another real gem among the aquarium fish: Lucania
goodei. The Bluefin killifish originates from Florida and reaches a length of about 5
cm. Our specimens are German bred. In contrast to most other species of killifish
this is a schooling species. To observe the harmless comment fights of the males is
really marvelous.

The Bluefin killifish spawns between plants and the eggs need about 14 days to hatch.
Lucania goodei is found in hard water in the wild and prefers such conditions also in
the aquarium. Owners of a garden pond can keep the fish even in central Europe from
late spring to early autumn under outdoor conditions. These animals will develop
particularly splendid colours.

For our customers: the fish have code 329003 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Lucania: Latin, means "the shining one". goodei: dedication name.

Corydoras gossei 


Currently we have beautiful German bred specimens of Corydoras gossei in stock. This
is a very lively species of Corydoras. It originates from the Rio Mamoré in Brazil.
Wild collected specimens are hardly ever available. Corydoras gossei is a close
relative of C. sterbai. However, due to the dark basic coloration in C. gossei the
bright orange spines of the pectoral fins look even better than in C. sterbai.
Maximum size in both species is around 6 cm.

For our customers: the animals have code 230243 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Corydoras: from ancient greek, means "with helmet and spear". This refers to
the strong armor and fin spines. gossei: dedication name for the ichthyologist
Jean-Pierre Gosse. sterbai: dedication name for the zoologist Günther Sterba.

Common names: Palespotted Corydoras, Orange finned Corydoras, Gosse ´s Corydoras
