Marbled Lungfish (Protopterus aethiopicus)

Marbled Lungfish (Protopterus aethiopicus)

$79.99$199.99

A huge-growing and beautifully marked fish found throughout much of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Marbled or Leopard Lungfish is a member of the familiy Lepidosirenidae, an ancient lineage of fish that extends back almost 100 million years. In the wild, these fish inhabit all kinds of aquatic habitat, from shallow swamps to rivers but generally prefer calm, slow-moving waters alongside aquatic or emergent vegetation. Named for their unique, lung-like organ that allows them to breathe atmospheric air, lungfish are able to survive in water with essentially no dissolved oxygen and even long periods of drought. Juvenile lungfish feed largely on insect larvae, while adults are omnivorous, feeding on crustaceans, snails, freshwater clams, and generally anything else they can fit in their large, powerful jaws. In the aquarium, they are a hardy and adaptable species but should ideally be kept alone or with very fast-moving tankmates as they are likely to take bites out of other fish.

Jungle Perch (Kuhlia rupestris)

Jungle Perch (Kuhlia rupestris)

$44.99

A rarity in the aquarium hobby, the Jungle Perch or Spotted Flagtail is widely distributed species throughout the Indo-Pacific and Northern Australia, where they are typically found in freshwater or lightly brackish water coastal streams. Although this species spawns in the ocean and larvae develop there, juvenile to adult fish tend to be found in freshwater streams or pools, often in areas of strong current where they are typically found in large groups. An omnivore, the Jungle Perch feeds on smaller fish, invertebrates, and fruit and plant matter in the wild and will accept most prepared and frozen foods in the aquarium. With their vivid spotted pattern and active nature, this fish makes a unique addition to a larger predatory fish community aquarium.

Leporinus grantiLeporinus granti

Leporinus granti

$24.99$99.99

One of the most attractively marked of all Leporinus, L. granti is found throughout much of South America but remains relatively rare in the hobby, with most of the specimens imported being collected from the rivers of Suriname. More recently, this species has been tank raised in limited numbers in Southeast Asia.  A large, fast-swimming, but relatively peaceful species, they make an excellent tankmate for large cichlids or characins, especially other active, fast-moving fish. As with most of their close relatives, L. granti can be prone to nip fins or scales of slower moving tankmates and can be aggressive towards conspecifics or other close relatives. Plenty of cover and strong water movement can help offset aggression in these fish.

Albino Spotted African Lungfish (Protopterus dolloi)

Albino Spotted African Lungfish (Protopterus dolloi)

$1,499.99

The Albino Spotted African Lungfish (Protopterus dolloi) is native to Middle African river basins, including the Congo and Ogowe. It is an obligatory air breather. In the wild, these fish live in transient floodplains, and during the dry seasons, the lungfish expel mucus, which dries and forms a cocoon around the fish, which can remain in this state for years. Since this fish will likely consume smaller community fish, it is recommended to keep it alone in captivity. These fish live for more than 20 years in captivity.

Golden Silver Arowana (Osteoglossum bichirrhosum)

$139.99

One of the larger predatory fish found in the Amazon Basin, the Silver Arowana is part of an ancient family of fish known as the bonytongues. A highly adapted surface feeder, Arowana are usually found close to the water’s surface in heavily overgrown areas with lots of cover. They are incredible jumpers, with adults able to leap several feet out of the water, and need to be kept in securely covered aquariums. Due to their enormous adult size, the Silver Arowana is recommended only for dedicated aquarists who can accommodate these giants in either a large custom aquarium or even an indoor pond. Specimens offered for sale are acclimated to aquarium life and feeding well on frozen and prepared foods. The Gold or Golden form of silver arowana is similar to the more well-known Albino variant but has normally pigmented eyes (instead of reddish or pink in albinos).

Freshwater Frogfish (Antennarius biocellatus)

$329.99

The lone representative of the marine frog and anglerfish family that is known to venture into brackish to pure freshwater conditions, the ‘freshwater’ frogfish is a unique and fascinating predator rarely seen in the freshwater hobby. Like their saltwater counterparts, they are slow moving, using their elaborate camouflage and lure-like appendage to ambush smaller prey items like crustaceans and smaller fish. In the aquarium, they are best kept in species tanks to ensure they are not outcompeted for food by faster-moving fish and will do best with plenty of rockwork or other cover which they will typically blend into with remarkable skill. Although they are collected in and kept in pure freshwater typically, these fish will do best with the addition of some aquarium salt at minimum and will also adapt with ease to brackish water conditions.

Unicolor Eel (Mastacembelus unicolor)

$129.99$179.99

An uncommonly imported and intricately patterned freshwater spiny eel, the Unicolor Eel is believed to inhabit Java and Sumatra in Indonesia, but their distribution and habitat in the wild remains unclear. Like their close relative the Fire Eel, this species is often shy at first but are intelligent and personable fish which will soon learn to beg for food and recognize their owners. Largely insectivorous in the wild, they will readily feed on live earthworms at first and can be weaned on to frozen foods over time. Although they can and sometimes will eat smaller fish, they are not particularly active hunters and most fast moving tankmates will not be at risk of becoming a meal. Hardy and adaptable, they make an excellent addition to an aquarium large enough to house what will be a substantially large fish as an adult and will get along well with most tankmates.

Golden Fire Eel (Mastacembalus cf. unicolor ‘xanthic’)

$699.99$849.99

An exceptionally rare color morph of freshwater spiny eel long assumed to be a Xanthic form of the Fire Eel (M. erythrotaenia), what is known as the Gold or Xanthic Fire Eel in the hobby may actually be the much more uncommon Mastacembelus unicolor, a variably patterned more elongated species which is found alongside Fire Eels in parts of their range. Due to their scarcity and high demand in the hobby, little is known about their wild habitat or where they are found but most specimens originate from Sumatra. With their striking, uniform yellow-gold coloration and outgoing nature these rare oddballs make for a one-of-a-kind centerpiece fish for true collectors.

Duboisi Puffer (Tetraodon duboisi)

$649.99

One of the rarest freshwater pufferfish seen in the aquarium hobby, the Duboisi or Malebo Puffer is known only from the lower Congo River basin around Stanley or Malebo Pool, along the border of the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This border region remains an extremely dangerous area for collecting and transporting fish which has contributed to their rarity in the trade. In the wild, they inhabit similar habitat to the Mbu Puffer, although with a much smaller adult size of only around 4″ this puffer makes a much more manageable aquarium fish in the long term. In the aquarium, they will do best as a solitary fish or with smaller, fast moving tankmates (which may still be at risk of predation). This species requires excellent water quality and prefers at least moderate current and well-oxygenated water.
