We received two species of wonderful, large, wild collected angels from Peru. One of them is traditionally called "Pterophyllum leopoldi
" in the hobby. It has a reddish back and a number of red spots on the flanks. The name, however, bases on a mis-identification. The "real" P. leopoldi originates from Brazil and is in truth what is called P. dumerilii
in the hobby, whereas the "real" P. dumerilii from Brazil is regarded as a synonym of P. scalare
Despite the confusion regarding the scientific name: the fish from Peru are breathtaking beautiful! Sadly we can import them only seldom and in small numbers. Although our fresh imports are still a bit shy they already show what they are made of.
For our customers: the fish have code 699306 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Available in limited numbers only!
