In contrast to its close relative Thayeria boehlkei, Thayeria obliqua is only rarely found in trade. The third species of the genus Thayeria ifati is even rarer. I have not seen it myself yet, which might be due to its endemism in the rivers of Maroni and Approuague in French Guyana, from where no exports can be realized. The fourth, recently described species Thayeria tapajonica MOREIRA & LIMA, 2017 originating from Rio Tapajós in Brazil is not in trade either. Continue reading

This weekend about 30 tetra enthusiasts were meeting in Ahrbergen, Germany for the first Tetra-Symposium of the IG BSSW. There was a lot of talk shop, new contacts were established, fishes were exchanged and on both evenings we talked late into the night over a beer, even with some spontaneous presentations. Thanks to all participants and especially to the speakers that have made the convention a full success! Overall, the feedback was very positive. Most of the participants agreed to meet again next year already and we will try to make that possible. The date will be posted as soon as we scheduled it. An in-depth report will be published in the BSSW-Report soon, stay tuned!
