HEMIGRAMMUS BLEHERI LOVES BLEHER

Venezuela, Rio Atabapo, 27 November 2009

 

 

The Brilliant or Bleher’s Rummy Nose Tetra is also found in the Rio Atabapo, Venezuela. The Atabapo is a black water river like the waters in the Rio Negro basin – where Heiko Bleher discovered this species in 1965, which was finally described by Jacques Géry and Volker Mahnert in 1987. And note: Hemigrammus bleheri is not be confused with the common Rummy Nose Tetra, Hemigrammus rhodostomus, which is only found in the lower Amazon basin and much less colourful. Also the latter is rarely seen in the hobby today.
Hemigrammus bleheri is one of the best, if not the best, group fish for a biotope correct aquarium and here one can see how they love its discoverer, cleaning his legs and arms from parasites and Aufwuchs…
