    Default New Tetra Species Discovered


    5 Not allowed!
    Heiko Bleher has discovered some probably new species of tetra in one of his recent trips in South America. Photos are included in this short article from Practical Fishkeeping online newsletter.

    I thought this may be of interest to some; I know I am always looking for new fish discoveries, even though it may take years before some of these enter the hobby.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

    I can post more of these, wasn't sure if members wanted them or not, so I will as I come to them. I check the new fish species being described regularly and some of the scientific papers are free online, or they appear in articles like that posted.

    Heiko and I have corresponded several times, and he really loves talking about his trips and discoveries. He believes he has introduced more than 4,000 new species of fresh and brackishwater fishes to the hobby in his several decades of exploration. An incredible individual.

    Always interested in new species of this family, so thanks for the information.
