Paraloricaria vetula specimen imported from Paraguay

The genus Paraloricaria contains three species that are distributed in southern South America. The fish are virtually unknown in the hobby. This is for sure at least in part due to the enormous size the fish can reach. At least P. commersonoides and P. vetula become larger than 50 cm. The common name for this species of catfish is called Vieja De Cola (Argentinian) according to PlantetCatfish. This armored species is one large exotic and beautiful catfish reaching over some 20 inches in length. They are awesome and unique color and pattern is very attractive.
 
For the first time ever we could import now Paraloricaria vetula from Paraguay. The unfriendly specific name (vetula means "old crone") refers to the dark pattern that reminded the describer obviously in the deep wrinkles of and old woman´s face. But we find them very attractive!
 
For our customers: the fish has code 275796 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Only one specimen available!
