African Tiger Fish (Hydrocynus vittatus)

$119.99

One of the largest and most fearsome predatory fish species found in Africa’s freshwater rivers and lakes, the African Tigerfish is a challenging fish to keep both due to its huge adult size and somewhat delicate temperament. They require clean, well-oxygenated water and will do best with moderate to high water flow. Recommended only for experienced fishkeepers with the largest home aquariums.

Aimara Wolf Fish (Hoplias aimara)

$449.99

The largest species of Wolf Fish and one of the most impressive predatory fish available in the aquarium hobby, the Aimara or Giant Wolf Fish is a fierce predator suitable only for the largest aquariums – pr perhaps more appropriately indoor ponds. Found throughout much of the Amazon and Orinoco Basins, these fish are powerful fish eaters which use their prominent sharp teeth to grab hold of prey. Despite their bulky appearance, Aimara Wolf Fish are fast swimmers and should be given ample swimming room (and a strong, tight-fitting cover). They are adaptable and generally hardy in the aquarium so long as good water quality is maintained. Due to their enormous adult size and predatory nature, these fish are only recommended for experienced hobbyists with the means to adequately house this species long term.

Alligator Gar (Atracosteus spatula)

$64.99

The largest species of true gar, the Alligator Gar is native to the temperate and subtropical waters of North America. Like all gar, they are predators, feeding on fish, frogs, and vertebrates. In the wild, the fish can easily get 8 feet or more in length, and should be considered only suitable for the largest custom aquariums or large ponds.

Amazon Puffer (Colomesus asellus)

$29.99

A true freshwater pufferfish found throughout the entire Amazon Basin, the Amazon Puffer is a small growing and relatively peaceful species that usually inhabits shallow water habitat. In the aquarium, they are one of the few puffer species which will thrive in groups, and they are generally safe with similarly-sized, fast moving tankmates. Amazon Puffers are primarily carnivores but will usually accept a wide variety of frozen and freeze dried foods.

Azul Peacock Bass (Cichla piquiti)

$29.99

With distinctive blueish gray coloration as adults, the Azul or Piquiti Peacock Bass is among the most popular of the large predatory cichlids in the aquarium hobby. These fish are popular food and sport fish in their native range. Like all peacock bass, Azuls require very large aquariums and should only be kept by experienced hobbyists. Azul Peacock Bass are powerful predators, and will eat any fish that can fit in their large mouths. They are best kept in small groups with similarly sized cichlids although aggression and territoriality can become an issue as they reach maturity.

Black Pacu (Colossoma macropomum)

$24.99

One of the larger fish in the Amazon Basin, and an important food fish throughout most of the its range, the Black Pacu is a beautifully marked “gentle giant” suitable for only the largest private aquariums, indoor ponds, or public displays. In the wild, this fish is an opportunistic grazer, which feeds primarily on fallen fruit and nuts from trees overhanging the rivers edge habitat where they are usually found. They are a hardy species, tolerant of a wide range of water conditions – but given their huge size and equally large appetite they will require significant filtration and regular water changes. The Black Pacu will accept almost any frozen or prepared food in the aquarium but should be offered a varied diet heavy in vegetable matter.

Black Wolf Fish (Hoplias curupira)

$79.99

A medium sized and widely distributed species of Hoplias, the Black Wolf or Curupira is found in a wide range of habitats throughout the Amazon Basin. With its stocky build and dark color, it is popular among predatory fish keepers and although less aggressive than some wolf fish species tankmates (if any) should be chosen with extreme care.

Black-barred Myleus (Myleus schomburgkii)

$49.99

A distincively marked schooling characin, the Black Bar Silver Dollar makes an impressive dither fish in a tank of large cichlids or predatory fish or as a centerpiece fish on their own. With their distinctive vertical black bars, elongated dorsal and anal fins, and combination of silver, red, and iridescent blue coloration, mature specimens are impressive fish and will display the best behavior and color in a group of 5 or more fish. With a wide range spanning much of the Amazon and Orinoco basins, M. schomburgkii has several distinctive regional color variants, with the Orinoco form also known as “blue hook” or “emperor blue hook” due to the iridescent blue they display as adults.

Blackhawk Catfish (Wallagonia micropogon)

$34.99

A recently described and massive growing catfish from the Mekong Basin in Southeast Asia, the Blackhawk Catfish is a large and distinctive predatory species. With its characteristic large mouth and eel-like body, this catfish makes for a unique display fish in a suitably large aquarium. They can be distinguished from their close relatives in the genus Wallago by their solid black dorsal and pectoral fins and distinctive black marbled pattern. Tankmates for this species should be chosen carefully as they will attempt to eat anything that can fit in their surprisingly large mouth. Due to their enormous adult size, this fish is recommended only for experienced hobbyists with the largest aquaria.
