Rio Novo with Moenkhausia heikoi

Sponsored by

Between the cracks of massive rocks in the Iriri was discovered a fascinating new Moenkhausia, which can grow to 9 cm TL, and more. It was later named Moenkhausia heikoi. The species lives with some syntopic species in strong current at depths of up to 2-2.5 m. The first juvenile was captured in submerged roots.
