Rasbora lacrimula


For the first time ever we can offer this beautiful Rasbora, which has been described
scientifically only in 2009. R. lacrimula is endemic in the Mahakam basin, Kalimantan
Timur Province on Borneo.

Regarding coloration this new Rasbora reminds one in R. reticulata and R. vulcanus,
but R. lacrimula stays much smaller. Maximum length observed is around 4 cm.


The new species is a lively, undemanding schooling fish and a perfect addition (not
at least due to the unique orange fins) to any tank for Southeastern Asian fish.


For our customers: the fish have code 452803 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Rasbora - the native bengali name for Rasbora rasbora. lacimula: Latin,
means "little teardrop", referring to the drop-shape of the lateral band on the
caudal peduncle.

Suggestion of a common name: Dwarf volcano rasbora

Rasbora brittani 


At the first glimpse this pretty Rasbora may look a bit colorless; however, if the
fish is kept in the perfect milieu (blackwater conditions and dimmed light) it looks
really beautiful.

Due to a number of anatomical specializations, the species has been recently placed
in a new genus, namely Kottelatia; so the most actual scientific name is Kottelatia

Obviously K. brittani has been often confused with another small cyprinid,
Pectenocypris korthausae. The latter has an identical coloration, but is much more
slender and has a more prolonged snout.


Our animals (wild collected) are about 3 - 3.5 cm long, sexually mature and the
females exhibit a belly full of eggs. So the maximum length for that species given in
literature (around 5 cm) seems to be a bit exaggerated.

For our customers: the fish have code 451112 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: brittani: dedication name for M. R. Brittan, who revised the genus Rasbora
in 1954. Kottelatia: dedication name for Maurice Kottelat, one of the most
experienced ichthyologists specialized in the freshwater fish of Southeast Asia.
Pectenocypris: from ancient Greek, means something about "Comb-Carp". korthausae:
dedication name for Edith Korthaus, who was editor of the German aquarium magazine
"Das Aquarium" and discovered the species.

Suggestion of a common name: Taillight rasbora

Gymnocorymbus socolofi 


The genus Gymnocorymbus comprises only three species, one of which - the Black Skirt
tetra, G. ternetzi - is among  the most popular ornamental fish. The other two
species are absolute rarities. So we are glad to be able to offer one of them, the
rare Gymnocorymbus socolofi from Colombia, once more.

This tetra reaches a maximum length of about 5.5 cm and is, like its famous relative,
a pretty and undemanding schooling fish. At a length of about 2 cm the species
exhibit the prettiest colour. However, even fully grown fish look very nice de to
their unusual body shape and the golden back.


Currently it is discussed, if G. socolofi is identical with the species described as
Phenacogaster bondi. If so, the latter name as the elder one will be the valid one
due to priority and the fish has to be named Gymnocorymbus bondi.

For our customers: the fish have code 254792 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Gymnocorymbus: from ancient Greek, means something about "with naked peak",
referring to the scaleless anterior back. socolofi: dedication name for Ross Solocof
(1925 - 2009). ternetzi: dedication name for Carl Ternetz. Phenacogaster: from
ancient Greek, means about "with elusive belly". bondi: dedication name for Frank E.
Bond, who organized a expedition to the Orinoco where the species was discovered.

Suggestion of a common name: Goldback Skirt tetra
