Xiphophorus variatus the variable platy from Rio Pantepec

For the first time ever we can offer this very interesting wild form of the variable platy in small numbers. The original stock of this variety has been collected in the Rio Pantepec in Mexico (state of Veracruz). The pattern differs a lot individually - a typical feature of Xiphophorus variatus - but the vertical bars shown by the males are very obvious. The tail pattern is variable. Besides animals without any tail pattern also halfmoon or even moon complete specimens appear. The number of spots in the caudal fin, another interesting feature of this population, differs also individually.
 
Of course these wild forms cannot compete with the artificially bred sports in respect of coloration. But for friends of livebearers this platy is a highly welcome addition to the available forms. One should breed it in pure strain and not cross with other platys.
For our customers: the fish have code 442985 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!
