Although less well known than the popular Black Ghost Knifefish, the Brown Ghost is a similarly unique species of knifefish found throughout much of the Amazon basin. A hardy species, they feed on insect larvae, crustaceans, and small fish in the wild but in the aquarium usually take to frozen foods very quickly.

Although they can be territorial towards each other in the aquarium, it is possible to keep them in small groups as long as ample cover is provided.

Banded Apisto (Apistogramma bitaeniata) – Wild Nanay

$7.99

The Banded or Bitaeniata Apisto is found throughout much of the Amazon in Colombia, Peru, and Brazil and is known to have many regional color forms. Like most Apistos, it is found in small forest pools and shallow reaches of flooded forest in warm, acidic water. A hardy and relatively peaceful species, they are ideal for smaller aquariums and do best with ample cover in the form of plants, driftwood, and small caves.

Note on wild-collected Apistogramma sp.:
While we will make our best efforts to select male/female pairs for customer orders, sexing small- and medium-sized wild Apistogramma is not always exact and we do not guarantee a particular sex ratio. We recommend buying these fish in larger groups if a particular ratio of males to females is desired.

Red Eye Red Spot Green Discus (Symphysodon aequifasciatus) – Wild Nanay

$129.99$179.99

Long considered the most beautiful of all freshwater aquarium fish, the discus remains a popular fish for serious hobbyists. Regular, large water changes, a protein-rich varied diet, and warm water temperatures (78-84) will create ideal conditions for discus to thrive. Wild discus like the Red Spotted Green are more sensitive to water quality and are best kept by experienced hobbyists. They will do best in soft, slightly acidic water and may take weeks or even months to display their optimal colors in an aquarium but will reward patient aquarists with spectacular coloration and natural behaviors. These specimens originate from the Rio Nanay in Peru and have been selected for good body shape, red eyes, and full red spotting throughout the body.
