Ceja Ray (Paratrygon aiereba)

$329.99

One of the more unusual looking freshwater rays, the Ceja or Manzana Ray is widespread throughout the Amazon and its tributaries, where it is usually found in sandy, moderately shallow waters with some current. They are specialized live fish eaters, using their oddly shaped disc to trap and eat entire schools of smaller fish. In the aquarium, they will almost always require live feeders as a diet but it is possible to wean them onto frozen feeds with time and patience. Due to their enormous adult size and challenging food requirements, this species is realistically only suitable for very large indoor ponds and should be kept only by highly experienced hobbyists or professional aquarists.

This species is not eligible for our 24 hour guarantee. We guarantee live arrival only.

Platinum Senegal Bichir (Polypterus senegalus ‘platinum’)

The Senegal, or Common Bichir is the most widespread species of Polypterus in Africa, inhabiting shallow waters across a huge geographic area. This species is also the most common in the aquarium hobby and has been commercially bred in Asia for years.

This extremely rare and prized fish is a truly impressive showpiece specimen for the true collector.

 

Jardini Arowana (Scleropages jardinii)

$149.99$249.99

The Australian or Jardini Arowana is a large and attractively marked species hailing from the ancient family of fishes known as ‘bonytongues’ and related to the more commonly seen Silver Arowana. These fish are found throughout Australia, New Guinea, and parts of Indonesia where they tend to inhabit shallow, slow moving waters. Less of a strict surface dweller than their South American cousins, the Jardini Arowana is a powerful swimmer and can be territorial and aggressive toward tankmates. Although it is one of the smaller species of Arowana, it will still reach a substantial size and requires a very large aquarium.

Mbu Puffer (Tetraodon mbu)

$199.99$249.99

Few freshwater fish are as immediately eye catching and engaging as the Mbu Puffer, an African species of true freshwater pufferfish found in the Congo River Basin. Intelligent, personable, but also extremely aggressive, this fish is a unique display animal and has a well-deserved following among keepers of large, predatory fish. They are relatively hardy and undemanding about water conditions, but with their often underestimated razor sharp beak they will typically finish off any tankmates over time. This species is therefore best kept alone. They are enthusiastic eaters and will learn to beg for food at the front of the tank quickly – the best food items for Mbu are protein-rich frozen feeds like clam, squid, etc. Their beaks grow quickly so frozen (or live) crayfish and other hard-shelled food items are an important addition the diet to help wear down their sharp beaks.

Tiger Moray Eel (Gymnothorax polyuranodon)

$199.99

One of the only species of Moray Eels to inhabit true freshwater environments, the Tiger Moray (G. polyuranodon) is a rarity in the hobby due to the remote areas it inhabits in West Papua, Indonesia. A hardy and adaptable fish, it can tolerate freshwater to almost full strength marine conditions if acclimated carefully. In the wild, they feed primarily on crustaceans and small fish, and like most Morays tong feeding is often the best way to get them used to frozen foods. They are a remarkable escape artist and any tank housing these fish should be completely escape-proof.

Silver Arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum)

$14.99$159.99

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.

Aba Aba Knifefish (Gymnarchus niloticus)

$149.99

One of the more unique species of knifefish, the Aba Aba is found throughout much of Africa, where it inhabits shallow, slow moving bodies of water. While juvenile fish are often found in small groups, adults become solitary large predators which like most knifefish use a specialized organ to detect the weak electrical currents generated by other fish. In the aquarium, they tend to be extremely aggressive, often attacking tankmates at night. This combined with their huge adult size makes them best suited for a species tank.

Goldline Knifefish (Sternopygus macrurus)

$69.99$129.99

A large, robust, and uniquely patterned species, the Goldline Knifefish is found throughout the Pacific coastal drainage of Colombia and Ecuador, where it inhabits a wide variety of habitat types. These knifefish can be found in fast-moving freshwater streams as well as brackish water estuaries so they appear to tolerate a wide variety of water conditions. A large and outgoing species which will readily eat small fish, these knifefish are ideal for a species tank or a community aquarium consisting of large but relatively peaceful tankmates. Like most knifefish, they appreciate having ample hiding places but are not particularly shy.

Shipping Note: Due to their large size, large, extra large, and jumbo sized Goldline Knifefish are NOT eligible for our $55 flat rate shipping. If at all possible we recommend shipping these fish via air cargo (rates start at $45). Contact us for more information or for a quote.
