L260 Queen Arabesque Pleco (Hypancistrus sp. ‘L260’)


With their intricate black and white pattern, the L260 Queen Arabesque Pleco is one of the most striking of the Hypancistrus and has been popular in the hobby for decades. These fish originate in the clear waters of the Rio Tapajos in Brazil, where they inhabit rocky, fast-moving shallows. In the aquarium, they are hardy and will feed on a variety of sinking foods but should be given plenty of protein rich foods like Repashy’s insectivore gel diets.

L193 Black Devil Pleco (Acanthicus sp. L193)


A giant growing and extremely impressive pleco, the L193 Black Devil Pleco is found in the middle Orinoco and its tributaries in Colombia and Venezuela. With their heavy armor, sharp spines, and huge adult size, this pleco is a true monster fish and adults are suitable only for the largest aquariums. Like most of the genus, they are aggressive and not at all shy, often spending time swimming in open water. They prefer fast-flowing, well-oxygenated water and will do best in a tank with ample open space along with caves and hides to provide territory.

Shipping Note: Due to their large size and sharp spines, large, extra large, and jumbo sized Black Devil Plecos are not eligible for our flat rate shipping option. We strongly recommend shipping these fish via air cargo whenever possible. Please contact us for more info or for a shipping quote.

Red Spot Puffer (Pao abei)


A unique and rarely seen freshwater puffer from the Greater Mekong Basin in Thailand and Cambodia, the Red Spot Puffer (formerly known as Tetraodon abei) is typically found in shallow water habitat with significant plant coverage. Like most puffers, they use their sharp, powerful beaks to hunt and eat insects, molluscs, and crustaceans. In the aquarium, they are undemanding and can generally be kept together but as with all puffers any tankmates can be risky.

Pignose Puffer (Pao suvattii)


A highly adapted ambush predator found in the fast-flowing waters of the middle Mekong, the Pignose or Arrowhead Puffer spends most of its time buried in sandy or silty substrate in the wild. Its upward facing mouth and excellent vision allow it to lie in wait for other fish or invertebrates to pass overhead, striking almost instantaneously to take a bite of the unprotected underbelly with their sharp beaks. In the aquarium they are interesting if not particularly active fish, best kept in a species tank. Any tankmates are generally at risk of being eaten.

Jardini Arowana (Scleropages jardinii)


The Australian or Jardini Arowana is a large and attractively marked species hailing from the ancient family of fishes known as ‘bonytongues’ and related to the more commonly seen Silver Arowana. These fish are found throughout Australia, New Guinea, and parts of Indonesia where they tend to inhabit shallow, slow moving waters. Less of a strict surface dweller than their South American cousins, the Jardini Arowana is a powerful swimmer and can be territorial and aggressive toward tankmates. Although it is one of the smaller species of Arowana, it will still reach a substantial size and requires a very large aquarium.

Tetragonopterus argenteus


A larger growing characin found throughout much of the Amazon and Orinoco basins, Tetragonopterus argenteus is relatively uncommon in the aquarium hobby.  With their size and bold demeanor, these tetras make an ideal dither fish for medium sized South American Cichlids. Their tank should be kept tightly covered as they are easily spooked and likely to jump out if given the opportunity.

Red Line Lizard Tetra (Iguanodectes geisleri)


A unique and rarely seen characin from the Orinoco and Negro rivers in South America, the Red Line Lizard Tetra is a medium sized schooling fish that inhabits shallow, warm, acidic waters. In the aquarium, they will do best when kept with other similarly peaceful blackwater dwellers like cardinal tetras, eques pencilfish, or marbled hatchets. Like most tetras, they prefer to be kept in a small group or school of at least 5 individuals.

True Armatus Payara (Hydrolycus armatus)


The largest and most sought after species of Payara or Sabertooth Barracuda, the Armatus Payara is found throughout much of South America, where it tends to inhabit waters with moderate to strong current. With their unique, flattened body shape, they spend most of their time hanging motionless against the direction of the water flow, waiting for prey to drift by. They use lightning-fast reflexes and their namesake saber-like teeth to grab hold of their prey, which can be fish up to half their own size. In the aquarium, payara often require live foods – at least at first – and do best in well-oxygenated water with plenty of water movement.

Albino L191 Dull Eye Royal Pleco (Panaque nigrolineatus)


A rare and one-of-a-kind albino variant of the L191 Royal Pleco, this stunning fish was collected in the Putumayo region of Colombia and is one of very few albinos of this species ever imported to the US. The fish pictured is the actual fish for sale. Like all Panaques, they appreciate driftwood in the aquarium and should be provided with a varied, primarily vegetable based diet.
