Nannostomus marylinae the Green Stripe Pencil from Venezuela

 
We could import a beautiful, only very rarely available species of pencil fish from Venezuela: Nannostomus marylinae. Some days after their arrival the fish showed two remarkable, reddish-brown spots in the middle of the body, a coloration that is said to be typical for N. minimus. However, now the fish have lost those spots. We checked the original description of N. marylinae and found that the two spots are also present in preserved specimens of N. marylinae. Now we are absolutely sure that our fish belong to that species.
 
Nannostomus marylinae is a comparatively small, slender species of pencil fish that becomes only 2.5 - 3 cm long. The absolutely peaceful species likes to swim around in company of conspecifics and is perfectly suited for small, so-called nano tanks.
 
For our customers: the fish have code 272123 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
