Teleocichla centrarchus

 
Teleocichla are small cichlids from Brazil South America. They love comparatively strong currents and moving water. The genus is a close relative of the pike cichlids (genus Crenicichla). The genus Teleocichla has been discovered only late, in 1988; and currently 18 different species are known, 10 of them are still undescribed scientifically. Genus type is T. centrachus; we can offer now once more some wild collected specimens.
 
Teleocichla centrarchus is one of the largest members of the genus. It attains a maximum length of about 12 cm (males) and 8 cm (females) respectively. Like in all Teleocichla the air bladder is reduced. So the fish swim hardly ever in the water column. Very small tankmates will be eaten, but in general this species can be considered a peaceful one.
 
T. centrarchus originates from the Rio Xingu. This means it should be kept comparatively warm (28-30°C). There are 6 additional species of Teleocichla known from the Xingu. All species of Teleocichla look very similar when frightened; so it can never be excluded that also some specimens of other Teleocichla are among our T. centrarchus.
 
For our customers: the fish have code 687933 (4-5 cm) and. 687934 (5-8 cm) on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
