- The Diamond Sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii) is often sold as a hybrid but is a true species. ... TheDiamond Sturgeon is very pretty when small but often loses its white pattern to become a grey/black colour. TheDiamond Sturgeon does not tolerate low oxygen or temperatures over 25C very well at all.
- The Diamond Sturgeon is the most popular variety of Sturgeon found in garden ponds but it is not suited to smaller ponds (where the Sterlet would be a better option) with a mature size often reaching over 4ft.
Our 10-12" Diamonds are strong broad fish with superb white coloration. They are now at a size where they should not get stuck in blanket weed and can compete with other fish for food.
