Xingu Apistogramma (Apistogramma agassizzi ‘Xingu’)


A colorful and rarely seen dwarf cichlid, the Xingu Apistogramma is found in shallow areas of the fast-moving clear water Rio Xingu in Eastern Brazil. Like most Apistogramma species, they will do best in a tank with peaceful tankmates like small tetras or dwarf rainbows – or in a species tank if breeding is to be attempted. The Xingu Apistogramma requires excellent water quality and regular partial water changes will ensure they thrive in the aquarium.

A note on wild Apistogramma: Unless otherwise specified, wild Apistogramma are sold as unsexed individuals. We will make our best efforts to send pairs or a requested ratio of male to female but we do not guarantee sex on these fish. We recommend buying in groups to ensure adequate males and females for breeding.

Mekong Goonch Catfish (Bagarius cf. yarrelli)


Among the most fearsome of all freshwater predators, the “Goonch” Catfish of the genus Bagarius have long been sought after by aquarium fish keepers with enormous tanks and a love for monster fish. Several species and variants of Goonch are found throughout the Mekong River Basin in Southeast Asia, and of these the Mekong or Thai Goonch (B. cf yarrrelli) are among the most suited for aquariums. These fish inhabit powerful rapids along the middle stretches of the river, near the Thai/Laos/Cambodia Borders and are found in almost tropical temperatures ranging from 75-78F, unlike the Highlands Giant Goonch from India which is found in much cooler waters. This species also tends to have the best track record in captivity, and usually thrives in suitably large aquariums with well-oxygenated, clean water and strong current.
