L014 Goldie Pleco (Scobinancistrus aureatus)


Easily one of the most vibrantly colored of all large growing plecos, the L014 Goldie or Sunshine Pleco originates in the clear, warm waters of Brazil’s Rio Xingu.

Amazon Leaf Fish (Monocirrhus polyacanthus)


An amazing example of mimicry in nature, the Amazon Leaf Fish both looks and acts exactly like a dead leaf as a sneaky way to lull its prey into a sense of security. When small fish venture too close, it extends its surprisingly large mouth and inhales them in one quick motion. In the aquarium, they make for an extremely unique display fish, especially in small groups. They are peaceful with nearly any fish too big to be eaten, but tankmates should be chosen carefully as fast-moving or aggressive fish can cause them stress. Although they are relatively hardy, feeding can be a challenge as they can be difficult to wean off live food fish or insects.

Black / Blue Arowana (Osteoglossum ferreirae)


Found in the blackwater Negro and Orinoco Rivers in South America, the Black Arowana is a sought after species due to its vibrant iridescent coloration and orange-trimmed black fins.

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.

Aimara Wolf Fish (Hoplias aimara)


The largest species of Wolf Fish and one of the most impressive predatory fish available in the aquarium hobby, the Aimara or Giant Wolf Fish is a fierce predator suitable only for the largest aquariums – pr perhaps more appropriately indoor ponds. Found throughout much of the Amazon and Orinoco Basins, these fish are powerful fish eaters which use their prominent sharp teeth to grab hold of prey. Despite their bulky appearance, Aimara Wolf Fish are fast swimmers and should be given ample swimming room (and a strong, tight-fitting cover). They are adaptable and generally hardy in the aquarium so long as good water quality is maintained. Due to their enormous adult size and predatory nature, these fish are only recommended for experienced hobbyists with the means to adequately house this species long term.

Dorado Catfish (Brachyplatystoma rousseauxii)


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.
