Amazon Leaf Fish (Monocirrhus polyacanthus)

$22.99$34.99

An amazing example of mimicry in nature, the Amazon Leaf Fish both looks and acts exactly like a dead leaf as a sneaky way to lull its prey into a sense of security. When small fish venture too close, it extends its surprisingly large mouth and inhales them in one quick motion. In the aquarium, they make for an extremely unique display fish, especially in small groups. They are peaceful with nearly any fish too big to be eaten, but tankmates should be chosen carefully as fast-moving or aggressive fish can cause them stress. Although they are relatively hardy, feeding can be a challenge as they can be difficult to wean off live food fish or insects.

Gulper Catfish (Asterophysus batrachus)

$39.99$69.99

With its prehistoric appearance and exaggerated, oversized mouth, the Gulper Catfish is hard to mistake for any other species. A voracious predator, they are amazingly able to consume fish even larger than they are. In the wild, they tend to inhabit deeper stretches of blackwater rivers, and their eyesight is relatively poor – relying instead on their sensitive barbels and sense of smell to find prey. Gulpers are relatively adaptable in the aquarium, but as a scaleless fish can be somewhat sensitive to water quality. Although they can be finicky eaters at first, they will quickly learn to accept frozen, protein rich feeds and even pellets.

Hifin Green Phantom Pleco (Baryancistrus demantoides)

$39.99$64.99

With their light green body coloration and distinctive yellow spots, this pleco makes a colorful and unique addition to most medium aquariums. As the name suggests, this species can be distinguished by an even more prominent dorsal fin than the common Green Phantom, as well as the fact that this species’ dorsal fin and adipose fin are fused. An omnivore, they will graze on algae but also accept a variety of sinking prepared foods – preferably a protein rich diet. Green Phantoms are sensitive to poor water quality so be sure to perform frequent water changes.

Burmese Clouded Archer (Toxotes blythii)

$33.99$39.99

One of the true freshwater species of archerfish, the Burmese Clouded Archer is by far the most beautiful species in its genus. Found on the lower reaches of the Salween River in Southern Myanmar (Burma) along the Thai border, these fish inhabit shallow, clear waters far from the coast. As with all archerfish, this species has the remarkable ability to shoot bursts of water at insects above the water’s surface – which make up the majority of their diet. Care in the aquarium is relatively straightforward, but it is important to remember that like most archerfish they can be hesitant to feed at first, especially if kept with aggressive feeders like cichlids. Most can easily be trained onto prepared foods by offering live feeder insects and floating pellets at the same time, and clouded archers will generally wean onto frozen and prepared diets quickly. We offer specimens well acclimated to aquarium life and feeding on a variety of different prepared (non-live) items.

 

Zebra/Striata Botia (Botia striata)

In the aquarium, they prefer clean, well-oxygenated water and ample hiding places in the form of rocks, driftwood, or caves. Although both males and females have extensive bristles on the nose, mature males are easy to distinguish as the bristles grow to a huge size. An omnivore by nature, they will readily accept veggies, sinking prepared foods like Fluval Bug Bites Pleco formula, or Repashy Gel Diet.
