Since about 2009 Nature paint finish cultivar Scalar wrongly be commercially have a red back, sold as Rotrücken scalar.

2 L134 Peckoltia spec Tapajos Zebra.

The L 134 is next to the L 46 of the most beautiful L - Wels. The yellow color with individually running brown to black-brown stripe pattern gives it a particularly attractive appearance. The drawing is, however, very individual and also age-related. So young animals have the above mentioned rich yellow color with few but powerful dark stripes. Older animals seem, however, almost beige with many narrower strips.

The Tapajos Zebra is an omnivore, but takes preference to animal food.

The L 134 is sexually mature about having a size of 8 cm and with an age of about 2.5 years. The males have a distinct Odontodenbewuchs (skin teeth) on the caudal peduncle. The females have none at all. In my group, a sex determination except one is not yet possible. The largest animal has about 7 - 8cm and has a slight Odontodenbewuchs, therefore it should be a male. All others are currently between 5 - 6 cm tall.
