Astyanax leopoldi

The Astyanax leopoldi lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater environment.

Except from Rio Oyapock Astyanax leopoldi are also said to be found in Rio Approuague. They were named in honour of King Leopold III of Belgium, who attended an ichthyological expedition to Rio Oyapock in 1962. More

Astyanax leopoldi is no exception, and you will rarely see it offered for sale. It occasionally turns up as a contaminant among shipments of other species. More
