Spotted Pictus Catfish (Pimelodus pictus)


A long time favorite in the aquarium hobby, the Spotted Pictus or Angelicus Catfish is a medium sized, active, schooling catfish found throughout much of the Amazon and Orinoco basins in South America. In the wild, they usually inhabit shallow water with medium to fast-moving current and typically shoal in large groups. A hardy aquarium fish, they should be given plenty of open space for swimming and are best kept in groups of 6 or more. They make an excellent addition to larger aquariums with peaceful South or Central American Cichlids.

Bandit Cichlid (Guianacara geayi)


A medium growing cichlid found in the soft, acidic waters of Guyana and Suriname, the Bandit or Geayi Cichlid is named for the distinct stripe covering both eyes. In the aquarium, they are active, interesting fish which will often sift sand through their gills like an eartheater as well as rearrange decor like plants or leaf litter. They are somewhat aggressive despite their relatively small adult size and will typically hold their own with similar or larger moderate to aggressive cichlids. Bandit Cichlids will typically get along in groups of 5 or more as long as ample space for territories and structure in the form of driftwood, caves, and plants is provided. They are a hardy and entertaining aquarium fish that will adapt to most conditions.

Dot Dash Leporinus (Leporinus steyermarki)


An uncommon and attractively marked species of Leporinus, the Dot Dash Leporinus is found throughout the Orinoco Basin in Colombia and Venezuela. It is found in a variety of habitat types, from fast flowing waters to shallow blackwater swamps. Like most of their close relatives, they are best kept in groups of 3-5 or more as they are a social fish. While they can be prone to nipping fins on slow moving tankmates, they make excellent dither fish for medium to large South American Cichlids or other fast moving larger fish.

L255 Spotted Medusa Pleco (Ancistrus sp.)


A colorful and uniquely-shaped Loricariid, the L255 Spotted Medusa Pleco is distinguished from similar species by the bright white spots covering most of the body. Like its close relative the L034, it is found in the clear, fast-moving waters of the Xingu in Brazil where it inhabits rocky shallows. In the aquarium, they prefer clean, well-oxygenated water and ample hiding places in the form of rocks, driftwood, or caves. Although both males and females have extensive bristles on the nose, mature males are easy to distinguish as the bristles grow to a huge size. An omnivore by nature, they will readily accept veggies, sinking prepared foods like Fluval Bug Bites Pleco formula, or Repashy Gel Diet.


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.

True Spotted Gar (Lepisosteus oculatus)


The Spotted Gar is a rare species of true gar. It is native to the temperate and subtropical waters of North America. Like all gar, they are predators, feeding on fish, frogs, and vertebrates.

Kuhli Loach (Pangio kuhlii) – Group of 5 Fish


A longtime hobby favorite, the Kuhlii Loach is deservedly popular due to its unusual eel-like shape and active, social nature. In the wild, they are found in a wide range of habitats, from peat swamps to shallow stretches of large river and can be found in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. In the wild, they usually inhabit soft, slightly acidic water with a fine sand or mud substrate and in areas with ample leaf litter and other cover and during the day are usually found burrowed in or close to the substrate. In the aquarium, they are hardy fish but prefer plenty of cover and will be most active and happiest in groups of 5 or more.

Marbled / Abramites Headstander (Abramites hypselonotus)


A unique, larger growing characin found throughout much of the Amazon basin, the Marbled or Abramites Headstander is an active schooling fish that makes for an impressive display in a medium to large aquarium.

In the aquarium, they will do best in groups of 5 or more (smaller groups will be prone to nipping at each other) and when kept with other similarly sized, fast moving fish. They make an ideal dither fish for medium to large South American Cichlids and have the added benefit of grazing on nuisance hair algae on rocks or decor.
