Aru Chondros


White, green, and blue, most chondro lovers melt at the site of a high-white Aru.  If I could only breed the high-white phenotype true!  Unfortunately, the high-white of wild caught Arus rarely translates to their CB offspring.  Map of Aru Island.  We are currently working with a small group of pure captive bred arus and hope to produce more in a few years.
