Glowlight Pygmy Barb (Horadandia atukorali) – Group of 5 Fish

$14.99

A rarely seen dwarf cyprinid or carplet found in Southwestern India and parts of Sri Lanka, this colorful active schooling fish inhabits shallow, slow moving waters, usually close to aquatic vegetation in its native range. In the aquarium, they will do best in a well planted or heavily aquascaped tank with ample cover and subdued lighting. Like most of their relatives, they prefer to be kept in schools of at least 5 (10+ being ideal) and a well established group will make for an impressive display in any nano aquarium. With a maximum size of just over 1″, tankmates should be similarly sized and equally peaceful. An excellent species for a shrimp or invert aquarium.

Peppered Cory (Corydoras paleatus)

$3.99

One of the most commonly kept species of Corydoras in the hobby, the Peppered or Paleatus Cory originates from watersheds in Southern South Amercia but has been captive bred on a huge scale for decades and wild specimens are almost never imported.

This species is an excellent community aquarium fish and will do well with nearly any non-aggressive tankmates.

Half Moon Betta Male (Betta splendens)

$11.99

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 half moon or moontail variant is a popular strain with an elaborate full tail which creates a half-moon shape when extended . 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.

Red Scat (Scatophagus argus)

$19.99

A popular brackish water aquarium fish, the Scat occurs in three distinct color forms (green, silver, and red) which were once thought to be different species but are now all considered to be variants of the extremely widespread S. argus. Found along nearly every coastline of the Indo-Pacific region, scats are amphidromous, which means they regularly move between freshwater in marine habitats. Although they are sometimes marketed as a freshwater fish (and can be kept as such as juveniles), scats will do best in brackish or marine aquariums. The ruby scat is the least common color variant of S. argus, and is typically found in estuaries and mangrove forests.  Although juvenile scats can tolerate pure freshwater for a while, they will need to be transferred to a brackish or full marine aquarium later in life. A social fish often found in large aggregations, they do well in groups of 5 or more.

Red Pigeonblood 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 Pigeonblood, which is known for its ornate pattern of red reticulation on a white body. 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.

Florida Gar (Lepisosteus platyrhinchus)

$59.99$74.99

The Florida gar is one of the more common species in its family, found throughout the temperate and subtropical waters of the Southeastern United States. Like all gar, they are predators, feeding on fish, frogs, and vertebrates. In the wild, these fish can reach 3 feet or more in length, and should be considered only suitable for the largest custom aquariums or large ponds. With its range in warmer regions, this species is more tolerant of tropical temperatures than many of its relatives but still prefers water on the cooler side than most aquarium fish.

True Pygmy Cory (Corydoras pygmaeus) Tank Raised – Group of 10

$34.99

One of the smallest species of Corydoras and an ideal, active schooling fish for the aquarium, the true Pygmy Cory is found in the middle to upper Amazon and Napo rivers in Colombia, Brazil, and Peru. In the wild, they are usually found in shallow white or clear water creeks with moderate current, and are a true shoaling fish which aggregates in groups of hundreds to thousands of individual fish. In the aquarium, they will exhibit this same ‘swarming’ behavior and constant activity if kept in groups of 10 or more. With their small adult size and compatibility with almost any other small fish or invertebrate, they are an extremely popular addition to planted and shrimp tanks. Our new tank raised Pygmy Corys are much hardier than wild collected specimens and will adapt to aquarium life easily.

L106 Orange Seam Pleco (Hemiancistrus guahiborum)

$17.99

A small growing pleco found in the Rio Ventuari and its tributaries in Venezuela, the L102 Orange Seam Pleco is named for the vibrant orange trim along the outer edges of its dorsal and caudal fins . In the wild, they are found in warm, acidic, fast-moving waters and will do best in similar conditions in the aquarium. A hardy and easy to care for pleco, they will do well with most tankmates but should be given plenty of cover in the form of driftwood or caves so they can establish territories. This species will eat a variety of sinking, gel, and fresh foods in the aquarium, and should be offered a varied diet high in protein.

Siebold’s Cichlid (Talamancaheros sieboldii)

$10.99

A rarely seen Central American Cichlid found along the Pacific slope of Panama and Costa Rica, the Siebold’s Cichlid is a colorful and territorial rheophilic or river dwelling species. Like many of its close relatives in Central America, this species is threatened by habitat degradation and competition from nonnative species. In the aquarium, they are an aggressive, boisterous fish that requires plenty of open swimming space as well as lots of cover. They are sensitive to water quality so frequent large water changes should be considered essential to long term success with this species.
