Nautilus Tropical Fish Wholesale of Plant City, Florida, announced last week that the company had received a number of exciting species of fish from Colombia.
Panda uaru, bicolor panda cories and chameleon whiptails were just some of the fish the company announced. Gulper cats were also received, and while they are categorized as monster fish, the group from Nautilus Tropical Fish Wholesale do not reach monster size. According to a message from Joe Hiduke, sales manager for Nautilus Tropical, the gulper cats only reach around eight inches, making them great predatory display fish. He advised that the gulper cats will eat fish nearly their own size, so it’s important to populate their tank carefully.
Also in stock are ruby tetras, which are super bright red nano tank fish, perfect for a several-gallon desktop tank “with a handful of fancy shrimp,” according to Hiduke. He also explained that longfin tiger barbs were expected to arrive in the days after the company’s announcement, the strain having a mutation for longer fins, slowing them down and making them better suited to a community tank.
