Three new Chaetostoma from Peru!
Sometimes we are really lucky and months of hard work and planning find an end in a
successful importation of new or very rare species. This happend recently and a
shipment from Peru contained not less than three new and spectacular Chaetostoma!
These fish are at least new for the hobby and possibly also new to science.

The most spectacular is for sure Chaetostoma sp. "Tiger", which has a whitish to
bright yellow pattern on a dark brown to black ground.
11/214824-chaetostoma-sp-ting2.jpg> Chaetostoma sp. Tingo Red
Chaetostoma sp. "Tingo Red" is quite similar, but it shows a very intensive orange
red coloration of the caudal fin, a more metallic basic colour and a less contrasting

Finally, Chaetostoma sp. "Pisqui River", also quite similar to the preceeding, but
with a stronger pattern.
All varieties are quite variable regarding coloration and very similar in body shape,
so it is possible that all belong to the same species. Our largest specimens are
around 8 cm long and obviously males. That means they are fully grown or at least
sexually mature. Females stay smaller and are less colorful. All species of
Chaetostoma have proofed so far to be easy to keep and to breed. In general they have
to be kept like Ancistrus, but prefer a bit stronger current and temperatures between
20-24°C. So hopefully these magnificent creatures will become established in the
For our customers: Chaetostoma sp. Tiger" has code 214844, Ch. sp. "Tingo Red" 214824

Crenicichla cf. regani Orinoco
The pike cichlids (Crenicichla) are one of the world´s most specious genera of
cichlid. Currently 85 species are accepted. Many of them grow larger than 20 cm but
there are also dwarf species. The beautiful, slender Crenicichla regani, which is
said in literature to grow to a maximum size of 15 cm (male) or 8 cm (female),
belongs to the dwarfs. Wild collected animals, like those we have in stock, never
have the size given in literature. The photographed specimens, for example, which are
sexually mature, have a total length (including caudal fin) of 7 cm (male) and 5 cm
The species Crenicichla regani has a very wide distribution in Amazonia. Similar to
the situation found in the African species of Tropheus from Lake Tanganyika there
does exist a large number of geographical varieties. It is most often impossible to
decide whether one of these varieties still belongs to the species C. regani or
represents already a new still undescribed species.
To this category belong the wonderful fishes we were able to import once more from
Venezuela. This species/population is characterized by the cherry red border of the
ocellus in the dorsal fin of the female. Males lack that eye spot in the dorsal fin
Keeping these cute fish is not difficult at all. However, they should - despite their
small size - not be kept in small tanks, for here they become quite aggressive. They
feed readily on any kind of frozen and live food. In nature the fish are found in
soft and acidic water, but that is not demanded in captivity. Of much more importance
is the water temperature, which should be relatively high (27 -32°C). All Crenicichla
have proved so far to be cave brooders with parental care.
For our customers: the fish have code 672712 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Crenicichla: ancient Greek, means "Cichla with a comb"; Cichla is another
genus of cichlid. regani: dedication name for Charles Tate Regan (1878 - 1943), a
famous ichthyologist from the British Museum in London.
Suggestion of a common name: Firespot dwarf pike cichlid
