Blackhawk Catfish (Wallagonia micropogon)


A recently described and massive growing catfish from the Mekong Basin in Southeast Asia, the Blackhawk Catfish (Wallagonia micropogon) 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.

Burmese Clouded Archer (Toxotes blythii)


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.


Humphead Glassfish (Parambassis pulcinella)


The humphead glassfish has been a sought after oddball since its first introduction to the aquarium trade over a decade ago, and originates from the Salween River on the Thailand Myanmar. Although most glassfish in the hobby are often considered brackish water fish, P. pulcinella is one of many species found exclusively in freshwater habitat. A relatively undemanding aquarium fish, humphead glassfish can be kept in small groups and are often quite skittish as single specimens. They seem to prefer relatively dim lighting and highly oxygenated water with a moderate current. The species is sexually dimorphic, with males exhibiting a larger, more prominent hump and females growing larger and having an overall bulkier appearance.


Fire Eel (Mastacembalus erythrotaenia)


A beautiful and personable large predatory fish, the Fire Eel is found in river systems throughout Southeast Asia. Although it will eat small fish, it is a generally peaceful fish and can be shy at first. Over time, however, they learn to recognize their owners and can often be fed by hand. A beautiful and hardy addition to a large predatory fish tank.


Humpback / Dragon Puffer (Pao palembangensis)


A colorful and unique freshwater puffer found throughout Southeast Asia, the Dragon or Humpback Puffer is an ambush predator, spending much of its time laying in wait on the substrate for unsuspecting prey to pass in front of them. In the aquarium, they are a relatively hardy puffer but they do have a tendency to bite other fish so tankmates should be chosen carefully.

Tiger Moray Eel (Gymnothorax polyuranodon)


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.

Leopard Eel (Mastacembelus cf. dayi)


A freshwater eel originating from the  Salween river along the Thailand/Myanmar border, the Leopard Eel is an as-yet undescribed species closely related to the more commonly seen Tiretrack Eel. An ambush predator in its natural habitat. In the aquarium, they are hardy but can be shy at first – be sure to provide plenty of cover. Although recently imported fish can be finicky eaters, they will usually learn to accept a variety of frozen foods. Like most freshwater eels, these fish should be kept in tightly covered aquariums as they will utilize even small openings to escape.

Cuckoo Catfish (Synodontis multipunctatus)


One of the more colorful and popular species of Synodontis, S. multipunctatus is known as the Cuckoo Catfish due to its habit of laying eggs in the nests of larger cichlid species, which then care for the young catfish as if they were their own offspring (a practice known as “brood parasitism”). Found in the cichlid-rich, rocky waters of Lake Tanganyika in Central Africa, these fish make excellent aquarium specimens and are typically bold and active fish. We are pleased to offer locally bred F1 specimens from wild-collected broodstock.

Jardini Arowana (Scleropages jardinii)


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.

Dwarf Pea Puffer (Carinotetraodon travancoricus)


The smallest known species of pufferfish and a true freshwater species, the Pea or Indian Dwarf Puffer is found in shallow, warm, slow-moving waters in Central and Southwestern India. With their small adult size, inquisitive nature, and interesting group dynamics, they are deservedly popular among nano aquarium keepers and they will do well in an aquascaped or planted tank. Best kept in groups, like all puffers they are prone to nip at the fins of their tankmates (especially slow moving or long finned species) so tankmates should be chosen with caution. This species has been successfully bred in the aquarium.


Greenbottle Puffer (Auriglobus nefastus)


A true freshwater puffer found in parts of Southeast Asia, the Greenbottle Puffer is a unique, fast-moving species which is often found in groups in the wild. Like most puffers, they are prone to nipping the fins of other fish, so should be kept with hardy, fast-moving tankmates (if any). This species can be kept in a  group of 5 or more fish, although they should be fed heavily and given plenty of cover to avoid aggression. They are known to inhabit fast flowing waters, so the addition of a powerhead for some current may be beneficial.


Harlequin Lancer Catfish (Bagroides melapterus)


A uniquely patterned catfish species originating in freshwater streams and rivers of Indonesia, the Harlequin Lancer is an active, aggressive fish which will do best in a large tank with ample hiding places. Tankmates should be chosen carefully as they will attack slower or more docile fish, especially at night.

Orange Spot Eel (Mastacembelus liberiensis)


A medium sized species of Spiny Eel known from Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia in West Africa, the Orange Spot or Liberian Eel is found in shallow, muddy rivers and streams throughout lowland tropical areas. In the wild, it spends much of its time buried in muddy or sandy substrate, using its specialized and highly sensitive nose to seek out prey. In the aquarium, they are a hardy species but will do best with plenty of hiding places as they can be shy at first. A slow and deliberate feeder, they can be outcompeted for food by fast moving or aggressive fish so tankmates should be chosen with care. Like all eels, they will use any opportunity to jump or crawl out of a tank so a tight fitting lid is essential.

Panda Garra (Garra flavatra)


A popular and attractive scavenger and grazer, the Panda or Butterfly Garra originates from rocky streams in Western Myanmar, where it is found in loose aggregations. Wild specimens are almost never exported, and the species has been commercially bred for the aquarium trade for year. In the aquarium, they are an active fish and useful grazer that will readily eat diatom and other forms of nuisance algae. Hardy and adaptable, they are best kept in a group of 3-5 specimens.


Red Tail Giant Gourami (Osphronemus laticlavius)

$39.99 $27.99

The Red Tail Giant Gourami is a less common species of Giant Gourami which develops striking red caudal and dorsal fins as it matures.  As a true giant, it lives up to its name, reaching an adult size of over 20″ in many cases. Despite their large size, they are typically gentle giants, and are extremely personable “pet” fish that will beg for food and often learn to recognize their owners. They are hardy and undemanding but will need a suitably large tank to be kept successfully. In the wild, much of their diet consists of fruit and they will happily accept treats like strawberries and grapes in the aquarium.
