Nanochromis parilus for sale the dwarf Congo cichlid

Nanochromis parilus is a species of dwarf cichlid that originates from the Congo region. Usually we offer this species as wild collected ones. But currently we found a breeder that can supply us with fully grown, very healthy, gorgeous animals.
It is quite interesting that among these bred fishes two types of males appear. Some males have a red pattern in the lower part of the caudal fin, others not. Formerly it was thought among aquarists that these differences in caudal fin pattern could be used to separate N. parilus from a closely related species, namely N. nudiceps. However, nowadays we know that N. nudiceps has an overall different look.
 
N. parilus are listed on the IUCN Red List for Endangered species due to urbanization in Pool Malebo (Stanley Pool) forms a problem in the region through sewage cast and lead toxicity, mainly coming from car oil and a lot of boat traffic. Inga 1 and 2 are existing dams with a minimal impact. Inga 3, to be built in five years will divert a significant amount of flow. Grant Inga will block a great part of the mainstream with major impact. This is a commercially important aquarium fish.
 
For our customers: the bred N. parilus have code 554584 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
