Titan Pleco (Panaque titan)

$219.99

A rarely seen and, as the name implies, a huge growing species of Panaque, the Titan Pleco or Titan Panaque is found in upper tributaries of the Eastern Amazon in Ecuador and Colombia (possibly Peru). A robust and relatively hardy fish, they primarily inhabit fast-moving whitewater stretches of river and prefer well-oxygenated water with some current in the aquarium. Like all Panaque species, it is a specialized wood eater and requires driftwood in its diet. They should also be offered a variety of other foods, including fresh veggies and specialty diets like Repashy’s xylivore formula gel diet.

Tigrinus Catfish (Brachyplatystoma tigrinum)

$199.99

A remarkably patterned, large-growing predatory catfish, the True Tigrinus catfish is found throughout the middle Amazon in Brazil and Peru, where it is a prized food fish. Juvenile fish are grayish at first, developing their distinct striping pattern as they grow. Tigrinus 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).

Tiger Moray Eel (Gymnothorax polyuranodon)

$199.99

One of the only species of Moray Eels to inhabit true freshwater environments, the Tiger Moray (G. polyuranodon) is a rarity in the hobby due to the remote areas it inhabits in West Papua, Indonesia. A hardy and adaptable fish, it can tolerate freshwater to almost full strength marine conditions if acclimated carefully. In the wild, they feed primarily on crustaceans and small fish, and like most Morays tong feeding is often the best way to get them used to frozen foods. They are a remarkable escape artist and any tank housing these fish should be completely escape-proof.

Black Wolf Fish (Hoplias curupira)

A medium sized and widely distributed species of Hoplias, the Black Wolf or Curupira is found in a wide range of habitats throughout the Amazon Basin. With its stocky build and dark color, it is popular among predatory fish keepers and although less aggressive than some wolf fish species tankmates (if any) should be chosen with extreme care.

Red Eye Red Spot Green Discus (Symphysodon aequifasciatus) – Wild Nanay

$129.99$179.99

Long considered the most beautiful of all freshwater aquarium fish, the discus remains a popular fish for serious hobbyists. Regular, large water changes, a protein-rich varied diet, and warm water temperatures (78-84) will create ideal conditions for discus to thrive. Wild discus like the Red Spotted Green are more sensitive to water quality and are best kept by experienced hobbyists. They will do best in soft, slightly acidic water and may take weeks or even months to display their optimal colors in an aquarium but will reward patient aquarists with spectacular coloration and natural behaviors. These specimens originate from the Rio Nanay in Peru and have been selected for good body shape, red eyes, and full red spotting throughout the body.

Costae Tetra (Moenkhausia costae)

$22.99$179.99

A rarely seen and highly sought-after species of schooling tetra, the Costae or Blackline Tetra is found in the shallow reaches of the Rio Sao Francisco and its tributaries in Southern Brazil. An extremely active species, they form large schools or shoals in the wild as a defense from predation. In the aquarium, their fast-moving nature and unique tail stripe pattern adds flash and movement to the middle and upper levels of the aquarium which has made them extremely popular with planted tank hobbyists and aquascapers. A hardy species, they are tolerant of a wide range of water conditions but should be kept in a well-covered aquarium as they are likely to jump. As a shoaling species, they should be kept in larger groups, with 5 fish being the minimum (more fish are better if space allows).

Vulture Catfish (Calophysus macropterus)

$44.99$169.99

The Vulture Catfish is a common species throughout much of the Amazon, typically in shallow waters where it often scavenges on discarded fish from fishing boats and villages.

$27.99$169.99

A powerful and large growing predator, the Orinoco Peacock Bass is found throughout the Orinoco and Meta river drainages in Colombia and Venezuela.

Nanay Dorado Catfish (Brachyplatystoma rousseauxii)

$99.99$159.99

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. 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.

Silver Arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum)

$14.99$159.99

Specimens offered for sale are acclimated to aquarium life and feeding well on frozen and prepared foods.
