A species of pupfishes from Iran called BOLDAJI

Aphanius is a genus of pupfishes and unlike other members of the family which are from the Americas, Aphanius are native to northern Africa, southwestern Asia (as far east as India) and southern Europe but Aphanius vladykovi hails from Iran. Several species in the genus have very small distributions and are seriously threatened so it’s vital to keep them in the hobby so their available for future generations to enjoy.
 
Members of the killifish-genus Aphanius appear only in Europe, North Africa, and Asia. In the aquarium hobby they are really rarely seen, and can be hardly ever found in a regular pet shop. Sadly many of the currently 22 accepted species and subspecies are in danger of extinction due to habitat destruction. This is a main reason why some specialized aquarists decided to breed them as a conservation act. And this is the source how we now received some specimens belonging to three species, one of them Aphanius vladykovi.
 
Aphanius vladykovi inhabits only a small area in Iran, the exact collecting site of the strain we can offer is Boldaji. This beautiful fish attains a maximum length of 5-6 cm and is one of the easier to keep species of the genus. Many species of Aphanius need the changing temperatures in the wild and do not thrive well in indoor aquaria; also some Aphanius need salt and full strength sunlight. But not so A. vladykovi.
 
This fish is kept best in groups in large tanks with a lot of plants. Here one can enjoy the wonderful displays of the males. The tolerance for water temperatures is very high, from 12°C-32°C. So one can keep the fish in summertime also in outdoor tanks. Fish brought back from there in the room-aquarium most often show breathtaking colors and are very healthy. For our customers: the fish have code 300853 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in small numbers only!
