Currently in October and November for distribution Rio orinoco altum red
New breeding from Rio orinoco awarded with Rio atabapo red
Absolute new breed! Pt. Altum Rio Orinoco NZ with Pt. alto Rio Atabapo red NZ crossed
It is a cross between Orinoco and Atabapo red Altum. The male animal is Rio Orinoco, the female animal is Rio Atabapo red. Such a crossing is only possible under Pterophyllum altum and not, according to my findings, Pt. altum with Pt. scalar. I do not have any information or images that have ever shown a spawning process.
Such an intersection would never be mine, intention.
I hope from this new altum crossing very large animals with a lot of red in the head area.
The offspring are expected to be available from mid-October!
