Spotted Damba Cichlid (Paretroplus maculatus)

$29.99

A rare species of Madagascan Cichlid, the Spotted Damba or Damba Mipentina is a large growing, bold and active species found in slow-moving rivers and lakes in Northwestern Madagascar. In the wild, they are critically endangered due to habitat destruction and competition from introduced species like Tilapia, but tank-bred specimens are available from time to time in the hobby. Like some of the other members of its genus, P. maculatus is often found in shoals in the wild, and will do best in a group of 5 or more. Aggressive and often extremely territorial, they are best kept in a species tank or with other robust, large tankmates that are not at risk of being picked on. Spotted Damba are voracious eaters, and should be fed a varied diet including some algae or vegetable based foods.

Choco Red Hump Eartheater (Geophagus cf. steindachneri ‘Choco’)

$14.99

One of the smaller species of South American eartheater, the Choco Red Hump Eartheater is similar to the more commonly seen G. steindachneri from the Magdalena basin but may represent either a regional variant or distinct undescribed species. This variant displays striking yellows, with mature males showing vivid iridescent blue and red as well. A hardy and adaptable species, they tend to take prepared foods better than some of their more delicate relatives but like all Geophagus prefer a fine sand substrate to sift through. A social fish when young, they can become aggressive and territorial when they are large enough to form pairs and spawn.

Burmese Upside Down Catfish (Mystus leucophasus)

$22.99

The Burmese or Asian Upside Down Catfish is a unique, medium-growing species of Bagrid found in the rivers of Myanmar in Southeast Asia. As the name implies, this unusual fish spends most of its life swimming upside down, with its mouth and ventral surface facing up towards the water’s surface, where it actively seeks out insects, crustaceans, and smaller fish as prey. In the aquarium, they are active, constant swimmers and tend to school in large groups as juveniles while adults are more solitary. With their unique swimming behavior and deep black coloration interspersed with blueish speckles, they make a fascinating addition to a community of similarly-sized fish but aggressive tankmates should be avoided.

Blue Mahseer (Neolissochilus stracheyi)

$29.99

The Blue Mahseer is one of several large cyprinids from Southeast Asia collectively known as ‘Mahseer’ – most of which are prized food fish in their native habitats. The species is one of the more medium-sized Mahseer, reaching a maximum size of around 20″ in theaquarium. Their large, iridescent scales and peaceful behavior in the aquarium have led some to compare them to tropical versions of koi. Although hardy and adaptable, they will do best in clean, well-oxygenated water with moderate current. Mahseer make excellent dither fish for large predatory species and rarely bother tankmates.

Thai Silk Flowerhorn (Cichlasoma hybrid)

$59.99

An active, medium-growing and beautifully colored cichlid, the Thai Silk or Titanium Flowerhorn is a man-made hybrid cichlid developed over years of line breeding. With their uniform, vivid powder blue coloration and distinctive hump that males develop as they reach maturity, this strain of Flowerhorn is deservedly popular in the hobby. Unlike some flowehorn strains, the Thai Silk are not overly aggressive and can be kept with other cichlids or one another in an appropriately large aquarium (with caution).

Premium Assorted Male Peacock Cichlid (Aulonocara sp.)

$19.99$29.99

One of the most popular groups of all African Rift Lake Cichlids, the Peacocks of the genus Aulonocara are large, bold, and vividly colored fish that inhabit the rocky shoreline areas of Lake Malawi. In the wild, these fish are found in loose aggregations, with males taking up and defending territories among the rocks. In the aquarium, they are aggressive and territorial, and ideally should only be kept with other Rift Lake Cichlids or larger Synodontis catfish species. Their aggression can be tempered by keeping them in large groups with lots of caves or rockwork for cover. Peacock Cichlids are largely herbivores and should be fed a diet high in algae or vegetable matter. Although hardy and very adaptable, they will display their best coloration in hard, alkaline water. This premium assortment consists of both wild type and line bred strains including Sulphur Head, Lemon “Jakes” (A. jacobfreibergi), O.B., Dragon Blood, and others.

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.
