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.

Fahaka Puffer (Tetraodon lineatus)

$29.99

One of a few species of giant freshwater puffers from Africa, the Fahaka or Lined Puffer is found in freshwater rivers and lakes throughout East and Central Africa. In the wild, they use their powerful beak to feed on crustaceans, mollusks, and even other fish. In the aquarium, they feed readily on most meaty foods and will readily take bites out of their tankmates as well. An intelligent and fascinating fish for an appropriately large aquarium, Fahaka Puffers are best kept in a species tank on their own.

Goliath Tiger Fish (Hydrocynus goliath)

$174.99

Living up to its name, the Goliath Tigerfish is a monstrous and fierce predator originating in the fast flowing waters of the Congo River basin in Central Africa. A strict carnivore, the Goliath Tigerfish sports a mouthful of prominent, large teeth which it uses to grab hold of prey. They are aggressive towards tankmates and with an adult size of well over 48″ should only be kept by experienced hobbyists with an enormous aquarium or ideally an indoor pond. African Tigerfish are sensitive to water quality and require clean, well-oxygenated water with a moderate to strong current.
