Small turns big: Boulengerella cuvieri

Boulengerella species are known to be top predator fish which are excellent jumpers too. There are five known species in the genus, B. cuvieri, B. lateristriga, B. Lucius, B. maculate, and B. xyrekes. These elongated and fast swimming fish inhabit large rivers in the mid water. According to the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species one species from this complex is listed, B. xyrekes as least concern.
 
At the end of last year we were able to import very small specimens of the genus Boulengerella from Peru. The fish were only 4-5 cm long and still had the juvenile coloration. This coloration made it impossible to determine the species. Two species of Boulengerella are known from Peru, namely B. cuvieri and B. maculata. The latter was sent almost exclusively in the past from Peru, so we stocked them under this name.
 
But now the fish have grown rapidly and now we can clearly see that they belong to B. cuvieri and not to B. maculata. B. cuvieri can be distinguished from the other species inter alia by the shape of the caudal fin, in which the lower lappet is always much bigger than the upper.
 
So now we can show for the first time ever the drastically change of coloration in B. cuvieri during the ontogentic development. This magnificent barracuda tetra is an ideal resident for great or public aquaria. We also have larger specimens of B. cuvieri in our fish house.
 
For our customers: the animals have code 21040 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
