Currently we have wonderful flounder whiptail catfish from Peru in stock. We have two sizes, eg 9-12 and 10-14 cm, repectively. These sizes give only the body length, as in Planiloricaria there is a filament on the upper lobe of the caudal fin that is as long as the body! Maximum length given in literature is 35 cm. Nevertheless, the sexes can be distinguished even in our halfgrown fish. The ventral fins in males are - compared with those of the females - longer and more pointed.
These whiptail cats normally do not swim, but "walk" with their ventral fins. One should offer them fine sand as gravel in the aquarium, so that the fish are able to bury themselves completely. These fish feed basically on meat. They love moscito larvae, bloodworm, daphnia etc., but accept also dried food (flakes, granules). These fish are somewhat stiff and need large tanks which should leave a lot of free space at the bottom. Against conspecifics of similar size Planiloricaria are usually peaceful, but smaller specimens are often mobbed. Fish of other species are simply ignored. However, one should never keep these catfish together with fin nibbling species. In that case the long fin filaments of Planiloricaria will be damaged for sure.
For our customers: the fish have code 280303 and 280304 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Planiloricaria: Latin, means "flat Loricaria"; Loricaria is another genus of catfish. cryptodon: from ancient Greek, means "with a hidden tooth".
Suggestion of a common name: Flounder whiptail catfish

Barbus conchonius WILD
You think you know quite well the rosy barb? Please take a look on our photos of the fantastic wild collected ones we currently have in stock and think about it. In fact wild collected rosy barbs - our specimens originate from the vicinty of Calcutta, the type locality of Barbus conchonius - look completely different compared with the aquarium strains. Males of the wild ones become metallic black and get a red caudal peduncle. Each scale is ornated with a bright silver spot - gorgeous!
Obviously the aquarium strains of the rosy barb do not belong to the species Barbus conchonius at all, but this is a different story.
Regarding keeping the wild collected rosy barb there is no difference compared with the domesticated ones. They are pretty hardy fish and very easy to keep.
For our customers: the fish have code 364335 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Barbus: Latin, means "the bearded one", referring to the barbels. conchonius: after the common name of the fish in Bengal.
