Chaca bankanensis Catfish (Chaca bankanensis)

$49.99

This bizarre species of bottom dwelling catfish is a classic ambush predator, closely mimicking the appearance of a dead leaf and lying in wait for prey to swim too close to its cavernous mouth. Generally found in shallow, blackwater habitats throughout Southeast Asia, their diet is primarily made up of smaller fish and insect larvae. In the aquarium, they are hardly an active species but make for a unique addition to any predator tank.

False Tigrinus / Juruense Catfish (Brachyplatystoma juruense)

$59.99

A remarkably patterned, large-growing predatory catfish, the Juruense or False Tigrinus is widely distributed throughout the Amazon Basin, where it is a prized food fish. Although juvenile fish tend to be a drab dark gray with some striping, as they grow this fish will develop a striking pattern of black stripes on an off white or occasionally even cream-colored background, extending to the intricately striped tail. There is an enormous amount of variability in this species so it is extremely difficult to predict how young fish will develop as they get older. Juruense Catfish tend to be found in fast-moving stretches of murky water, and they rely on their sensitive barbels much more than their limited eyesight to find prey. In the aquarium, they prefer dim lighting, ample hiding places, and pristine water quality (maintaining high levels of dissolved oxygen is especially important).

Dorado Catfish (Brachyplatystoma rousseauxii)

$99.99

Although many large Amazon catfish are known as “Dorado”, this species is among the largest growing and most distinctive. With its uniform metallic silver coloration and torpedo-like hydrodynamic shape, the Dorado is an impressive fish, but one suitable only for enormous custom aquariums or large indoor ponds. In the wild, this fish inhabits deep stretches of turbid, sediment rich rivers and streams, where it relies on its sensitive barbels to find and catch prey. They can be finicky eaters in the aquarium, often requiring live food at first before being weaned on to frozen or prepared diets. Like many of the giant Amazonian catfish, they are sensitive to water quality and will require massive filtration and regular large water changes to thrive. A fish for experienced, specialist aquarium hobbyists with the resources to keep them long term only.

Burmese Clouded Archer (Toxotes blythii)

$33.99$39.99

One of the true freshwater species of archerfish, the Burmese Clouded Archer is by far the most beautiful species in its genus. Found on the lower reaches of the Salween River in Southern Myanmar (Burma) along the Thai border, these fish inhabit shallow, clear waters far from the coast. As with all archerfish, this species has the remarkable ability to shoot bursts of water at insects above the water’s surface – which make up the majority of their diet. Care in the aquarium is relatively straightforward, but it is important to remember that like most archerfish they can be hesitant to feed at first, especially if kept with aggressive feeders like cichlids. Most can easily be trained onto prepared foods by offering live feeder insects and floating pellets at the same time, and clouded archers will generally wean onto frozen and prepared diets quickly. We offer specimens well acclimated to aquarium life and feeding on a variety of different prepared (non-live) items.

Humphead Glassfish (Parambassis pulcinella)

$29.99

The humphead glassfish has been a sought after oddball since its first introduction to the aquarium trade over a decade ago, and originates from the Salween River on the Thailand Myanmar. Although most glassfish in the hobby are often considered brackish water fish, P. pulcinella is one of many species found exclusively in freshwater habitat. A relatively undemanding aquarium fish, humphead glassfish can be kept in small groups and are often quite skittish as single specimens. They seem to prefer relatively dim lighting and highly oxygenated water with a moderate current. The species is sexually dimorphic, with males exhibiting a larger, more prominent hump and females growing larger and having an overall bulkier appearance.

Burmese Shovelnose Catfish (Sperata acicularis)

$29.99

A large and rarely seen predatory catfish, the Burmese Shovelnose originates from several of the large rivers in Myanmar (Burma), where it is a prized food fish. An active, open water species, they are generally found within the main river channels in their native habitat in fast-moving, well oxygenated water. In the aquarium, similar conditions should be replicated, with regular large water changes to maintain excellent water quality. Although this species feeds largely on live fish in the wild, they will readily accept frozen and prepared foods. Due to their massive adult size, we recommend this fish only to experienced hobbyists with the means to house this large species.

Golden Rose Mahseer (Tor douronensis)

$29.99

The Golden Rose 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. Some species in the genus grow to truly huge sizes, but the Golden Rose (also known as Semah Mahseer) is among the smallest of these, growing to the considerable but not enormous adult size of about 15″. 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.

L177 Goldseam Gold Nugget Pleco (Baryancistrus xanthellus)

$39.99$49.99

The most vibrant form of all the Gold Nugget Plecos, and one of the most brightly colored of all plecos, the L177 Goldseam Gold Nugget has been a popular aquarium fish for many years. Found in the rocky, warm, and fast-flowing Xingu and Iriri rivers in Brazil, these fish require somewhat specialized conditions to thrive in the aquarium and may not be the best choice for the average community tank. They will do best in warmer (80F+), well-oxygenated water with moderate to strong current, and can be shy if kept individually – keeping multiple fish together along with ample hiding places is best. Although they will eat vegetables and algae-based foods, they also readily accept frozen bloodworms and carnivore diets.

“New Ranger” Pleco (Pterygoplichthys sp.)

$12.99

One of the smallest species of pleco known, the “new ranger” is an as-yet undescribed species originating from the Nanay River in Peru. They are an excellent algae eater, feeding on many species of nuisance algae in the aquarium (including diatoms). Although small for a pleco, they are still substantial fish and should be given ample space and cover in the aquarium. Supplement their diet regularly with algae-based sinking foods, gel foods, and fresh vegetables.

Diamond Sturgeon (Acispenser gueldenstaedtii)

$54.99$74.99

Sturgeon are one of the most ancient families of fish on earth, and most species inhabit large river systems and lakes in subtropical regions. The Diamond Sturgeon originates from rivers throughout Eastern Europe and Central Asia, where it is threatened by overfishing. Fortunately, it is being commercially aquacultured and our specimens are farm raised in Florida. Although they can be kept in huge aquariums (at least temporarily), their huge adult size and active swimming nature means they are really best suited for ponds. A subtropical species, they are tolerant of cool (but not freezing) temperatures and should not be kept in temperatures exceeding the low 70’s. A rare and unique fish for specialist keepers.

L075 Para Pleco (Peckoltia sabaji)

$34.99$59.49

The L075 or Para Pleco is found in fast-flowing, rocky rivers throughout the Xingu and other Amazon Tributaries. As a medium growing and attractively marked pleco, it is a good addition for a medium to large aquarium and is generally peaceful towards tankmates. The L075 will usually coexist with other plecos as long as ample hiding places and cover is provided. An omnivore, they should be fed a varied diet of both algae/vegetable based and protein-rich foods.

Red Cheek Goby (Lentipes armatus)

$24.99

The most colorful of all freshwater gobies in the genus Stiphodon, the Cobalt Blue Goby originates from fast moving rocky streams in West Papua, Indonesia. In the wild, it lives in small groups where individual fish stake out their own territories among the rocks. They feed on algae growth and biofilms in the wild and in the aquarium should be fed algae or vegetable based sinking foods (gel diets are ideal). They require clean, well-oxygenated water with some current and will do best at slightly cooler temperatures than most tropical fish (74-76F).

Amazon Red Tail Tetra (Aphyocharax cf. dentatus)

$6.99

A unique and rarely seen characin, the Amazon Red Tail Tetra is a larger growing species found in relatively fast moving waters of the Amazon and its tributaries. In the aquarium, they are fast moving and always in motion, best kept in a school of 5 or more fish. They can be aggressive and nip fins off smaller or slower moving species so tankmates should be chosen carefully – any long-finned species should be avoided. With their size and speed, these tetras make an ideal dither fish for medium sized South American Cichlids.
