A rarely seen species of Myleus (commonly referred to as Silver Dollars in the trade), the Sailfin Red Hook or Myleus setiger originates in the rivers and streams of Guyana and Suriname. It has only rarely been seen in the aquarium hobby, but adults develop extremely elongated, deep red dorsal and anal fins as well as a reticulated or blotchy pattern on the body. These tank-bred specimens from Asia are a new and rare offering.
