Giant Glassfish (parambassis gulliveri)

Recommended Posts

.Hey everyone,

does anyone have any giant glassfish? Looking for some to go in our 6ft. Even if you have some and dont want to part with them, can you post some pics?

any info on sourcing them would be great!

thanks :)

They suffer from severe handling and transport shock so I doubt very much you will find any. Decades ago when they'd ship them less than 1% survived. Beautiful fish though.

I'm on a very very longterm search for these guys. I doubt very much they will ever be available in a 'shop' the way they are in the UK or Asia; you're looking at requesting someone with a collection permit to get you some, at your cost.

I've been asking around for years and still don't have any. Someday!

These arent the old school "poor mans catfish" obviously.

AFAIK they shipped ok.

A google is giving me Kryptopterus macrocephalus, do you remember those guys [MENTION=8516]none[/MENTION] ?

Last time I remember seeing them was like 2004 or something.

oops thought I read glass catfish, not glassfish.......... doh
