Paraneetroplus bifasciatus 'Rio Chacamax': Stunning!!

Postby notho2000 » Thu Nov 28, 2013 3:58 am

Here are a few pictures of my adult Paraneetroplus bifasciatus 'Rio Chacamax'. I have two breeding pair in a 180G along with some other CAs. They are about three years old now and continue to amaze me with their 'mind blowing' color. They are F1s from Rusty Wessel's WC stock.

Hi there,

I was wondering, are these also known as Vieja synspilum? I saw these in an extremely large tank once, suffice to say after my current project I’ll start my dream tank iv convinced the minister for war that we need an 8x2x2.5 with 4ft sump system (I’m in the midst of a planted tank) I’m wondering what the smallest tank mates you have are and if you have them with plants?

Again beautiful fish, truly beautiful

Regards Duzzy

Bifacsciatus though may look a little similar are different than Synspilum. Both were considered Vieja.

Here is a distant cousin i got from Jeff Rapps back in the day. F1 Rio Chacamax. Think he was around 13" when I had to part with him because of a move. Someday I will get another monster tank and restock.
