Red Marlboro Discus (Symphysodon discus)

$44.99

Long considered the most beautiful of all freshwater aquarium fish, the discus remains a popular fish for serious hobbyists. Discus originate from the warm, acidic waters of Amazon tributaries in Brazil and Peru and are typically found in large groups. The many wild forms of discus have been selectively bred to create dozens of colorful strains, including the Red Marlboro, which is known for its deep red body and red face. In the aquarium, regular large water changes, a protein-rich varied diet, and warm water temperatures (78-84) will create ideal conditions for these fish to thrive. Like all discus, they will do best in soft, slightly acidic water but will reward patient aquarists with spectacular coloration.

Assorted Female Betta (Betta splendens)

$3.99

Probably the single most popular fish kept around the world, the Betta or Siamese Fighting fish has been popular in its native Thailand for centuries, and has been bred into dozens of color forms and strains. The longfin strain originated in the early 20th century and is now the “standard” pet B. splendens. Incredibly hardy, and with the ability to breathe air from the surface, these fish are popular “bowl fish” but really will do best in a small aquarium with a heater and some form of filtration. As their name implies, males of this species will fight and must be kept singly but females can be kept in groups.

Assortment note: Our assortment includes a variety of colors including blue, red, green, purple, and others. If you have a specific color you’d like you can request it in the order notes and we will make our best effort to select that color if possible.

Silver Hatchet (Gasteropelecus sternicla)

$3.99

Zebra Acara (Ivanacara adoketa)

$39.99$59.99

The Zebra Acara or Starry Dwarf Cichlid is a medium sized, spectacularly marked cichlid found in blackwater habitat in the upper Rio Negro and Rio Uapes in Brazil and Colombia. In the wild, this species inhabits warm, acidic, heavily tannin-stained pools and creeks where breeding pairs defend territories from other fish. In the aquarium, they prefer soft water with temperatures in the low 80s and will display their best coloration with the addition of some tannins in the water from the addition of Indian Almond leaves or other botanicals. As these fish mature, they tend to be territorial and aggressive among themselves and with other cichlids, but other non-cichlid tankmates too big to be eaten will usually be ignored.

Firewood / Planiceps Catfish (Sorubimichthys planiceps)

$119.99$139.99

A uniquely shaped, large-growing predatory catfish, the Planiceps or Firewood Catfish is found throughout the middle Amazon in Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador where it is a prized food fish. Juvenile fish have impressive butterfly-like pectoral fins which develop into more traditional fins as they grow. Like most of its relatives, they tend to be found in fast-moving stretches of murky water, and they rely on their sensitive barbels much more than their limited eyesight to find prey. In the aquarium, they prefer dim lighting, ample hiding places, and pristine water quality (maintaining high levels of dissolved oxygen is especially important). Due to their enormous adult size, they require a substantial indoor pond to be kept long term.

One of the most popular dwarf cichlids in the hobby, Apistgramma agassizi (also known as Agassiz’s Dwarf Cichlid) is an attractive and interesting addition to smaller community aquarium.

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.
