Suriname – On the trail of the ornamental fish
In 2008 I‘ve visited Suriname, the center state of the three Guyanas, together with a group of aquarists. On our trip we were on the trail for some well known but rarely imported species.
Next to some Corys, i.e. C. aeneus, C. brevirostris and C. coppenamensis we‘ve also found some plecos like Hypostomus plecostomus and whiptails like Rineloricaria platyura. Furthermore we‘ve also found many Cichlids like Geophagus surinamensis, G. brokopondo, and Apistogramma steindachneri. Of course many tetras we have caught, too. Our destinations were next to the Brokopondo barrier lake (Suriname river) also the tributaries of the Saramacca, Gosewijne, and Coppename river. In this talk I‘ll show not only fish pics, but also streetscapes and, of course, many biotope pictures and data.
