I didn’t understand the hype over this fish. The fancy name caught my attention but it struck me as just another name game to sell an average African tetra. But, as often happens, I ordered a few so I could see for myself. WOW! That’s all I can say. After a week in a so so decorated tank these fish are a knock out. And they are maybe 1/2 grown so they should only get better! I’ll have to order more of them so I can get a few in my West African display tank. These guys are worth every penny! I only have a few on hand.
Moenkhausia heikoi, another incredible “new” tetra to be recently discovered. Obviously the picture below is from the great German importer Aquarium Glaser and not my image. I have posted a short video of the actual fish that I brought in on my facebook page and my instagram account. They are currently in a bare bottom tank and look good. I can’t wait to pull a few out and get them into a decorated tank and see what they really look like!
Don’t miss out on getting a few yourself. I don’t think these will stay here long and I have no idea if any more will come into the US any time soon.
