Hasselt’s Leaf Catfish (Silurichthys hasseltii)


A rare, cryptic catfish or sheathfish found throughout parts of Southeast Asia, the Haeelt’s Leaf Catfish or Asian Leaf Cat inhabits slow moving stretches of river and blackwater swamps in parts of Java, Peninsular Malaysia, and possibly Singapore. Little is known of their habits in the wild, but they mimic fallen leaves and appear to be primarily nocturnal. In the aquarium, they prefer soft, acidic water and will do best in a setup designed to mimic their wild habitat. A shy species, they will do best with other shy or slow-moving tankmates as they can easily be outcompeted for food by fast or aggressive fish.

Senegal Bichir / Dinosaur Eel (Polypterus senegalus)


The Senegal, or Common Bichir is the most widespread species of Polypterus in Africa, inhabiting shallow waters across a huge geographic area. This species is also the most common in the aquarium hobby and has been commercially bred in Asia for years. In the aquarium, they have been popular for many years due to their eel-like body shape, predatory nature, and unique appearance. A hardy fish, the Senegal Bichir or Dinosaur Eel as they are sometimes known require a large tank due to their adult size but are otherwise undemanding.


Pygmy Talking Catfish (Physopyxis lyra)


One of the smallest species of catfish known, the Pygmy Talking Catfish is a unique and uncommonly imported Doradid found throughout the middle Amazon and Essequibo basins. In the wild, they are a cryptic species which inhabits leaf litter and driftwood piles in warm, extremely shallow water. In the aquarium, they are a hardy and unusual addition to a nano or small fish community aquarium. A scavenger and opportunistic feeder, they will accept most sinking frozen and prepared foods for very small fish.

Green Tiger Barb (Puntigrus pentazona) – Group of 5 Fish


A classic aquarium fish and one of the most popular species in the hobby, the Tiger Barb is an attractive, fast-moving schooling fish best kept in groups of 5 or more. They can be considered a semi-aggressive fish but typically if kept in a large enough group they will ignore other tankmates. A hardy and adaptable fish, the Tiger Barb makes an excellent addition to most medium to large community aquariums and a great dither fish for many Central and South American Cichlids. The “Green” variant is a selectively bred strain that displays a unique green body coloration instead of the typical black stripes.

In the wild, they inhabit slow moving streams and creeks with sandy substrate and soft, acidic and often tannin-stained waters, usually among aquatic plants or fallen branches. A hardy and adaptable fish in the aquarium, they are popular with aquascapers due to their small adult size, active nature, and distinctive markings. Like most schooling rasboras, they are best kept in groups of 10 or more and will thrive with most similarly-sized peaceful tankmates.

Emerald Cory (Brochis splendens)


A large growing and colorful armored catfish, the Emerald Cory or Emerald Brochis has a wide range throughout much of the Amazon basin. Like most Corys, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature. Because of their larger adult size than most of their relatives, this species makes for great bottom feeders or dithers in aquariums with medium South or Central American Cichlids or other predatory fish which aren’t large enough to try to make a meal of them.


L137 Blue Eyed Red Fin Pleco (Hypostomus soniae)


A colorful, medium growing Hypostomus species found in the clear waters of Brazil’s Rio Tapajos, the L137 or Blue Eyed Red Fin Pleco makes an excellent aquarium fish for a large community or predator aquarium.

A rarely seen species of Myleus (commonly referred to as Silver Dollars in the trade), the Sailfin Red Hook or Myleus setiger originates in the rivers and streams of Guyana and Suriname. It has only rarely been seen in the aquarium hobby, but adults develop extremely elongated, deep red dorsal and anal fins as well as a reticulated or blotchy pattern on the body.

Neolamprologus hecqui – Group of 5 Fish


A medium sized and robust shell-dwelling species of cichlids found in Africa’s Lake Tanganyika, N. hecqui or Hecq’s Lamprologus makes for a unique display fish due to their vivid pattern and bold, fascinating behavior. In the wild, these cichlids inhabit dense fields of empty snail shells at the bottom of the lake, where each fish will stake a territory in an individual shell and defend it from others. In the aquarium, they are hardy and adaptable but prefer alkaline water and should be provided with shells or similar structure for them to establish territories in. One of the more territorial species of shell dwelling cichlids, they should be given ample space and may bully smaller tankmates.

An uncommon, medium-growing “shark” (actually a member of the barb family), the Borneo Redfin Shark is typically found in acidic, black water streams, rivers, and pools throughout Borneo. A hardy and peaceful species, they will do well in a wide range of water conditions but will show their best coloration in warm, soft water. In the aquarium, they are best kept in groups of 3 or more and will generally do well with other similar schooling fish.

Giant Checkerboard / Hercules Cichlid (Crenicara punctulata)


A rarely imported dwarf cichlid found throughout parts of the Amazon and Essequibo River basins in South America, the Giant Checkerboard or Hercules Cichlid is a colorful and entertaining species ideal for a small to medium planted or mixed species community aquarium. Like the more common Checkerboard Cichlid (D. filamentosus), these are a social dwarf cichlid, often found in large groups in the wild. They tend to stay close to the bottom level of the aquarium and will do best with sand substrate and plenty of cover in the form of driftwood, live plants, rockwork or caves.

Garnet Tetra (Hemigrammus pulcher)


An uncommon but nicely marked  tetra, the Garnet, Pretty, or Black Wedge Tetra is an ideal community fish for a medium to large aquarium and makes an excellent schooling fish when kept in an appropriate sized group.
