Crocodile Goonch Catfish (Bagarius suchus)


A rare species of the famed Goonch Catfish of Southeast and South Asia, the Crocodile Goonch is found in the rocky rapids of the middle Mekong in Thailand, Laos, and parts of Cambodia. With their elongated body and broad sensory barbels, these catfish are highly adapted to life in the rocky, fast-moving waters they inhabit in the wild. The Crocodile Goonch is among the smaller members of its genus but still reaches a substantial size, approaching 2 feet as adults. In the aquarium, they should be kept in similar conditions to the wild, with clean, well-oxygenated water and strong current. Rocks and other hides should be provided and they will generally do best with low or subdued lighting.

Thinbar Datnoid / Northern Thailand Tigerfish (Datnioides undecimradiatus)


The beautifully marked Thinbar Datnoid or NTT (Northern Thailand Tiger) is one of the more sought after species of the genus Datnioides in the hobby. Found in the Mekong basin in Northeastern Thailand, Laos, and parts of Cambodia, this species generally adapts well to the aquarium and makes for an impressive display specimen. They prefer clear, well-oxygenated water and are sensitive to water quality, so regular water changes are important to keep them thriving.

Nandus Leaf Fish (Nandus nandus)


A cryptic and unusual ambush predator, the Asian Leaf Fish or Nandus nandus is found throughout much of South and Southeast Asia, especially in and around coastal river systems where they inhabit both fresh and slightly brackish waters. Their body shape, coloration, and behavior allow them to mimic dead leaves and get close to unsuspecting prey items like small fish. In the aquarium, they are generally peaceful with tankmates too large to be eaten but due to their shy nature should not be kept with fast-moving or aggressive species.

Tabla Barba / Slobbering Catfish (Brachyplatystoma platynemum)


A large, distinctive predatory catfish found throughout much of the middle Amazon, the Slobbering Catfish is also sometimes known as Tabla Barba, a local name for the fish in its native Peru where it is an important food fish. Growing as large as 36″ or more in the wild, this fish is not as active as some of its open-water swimming relatives but still requires an enormous aquarium as an adult. A powerful predator, they can require live foods at first but can usually be weaned onto meaty frozen foods like krill or silversides. They require excellent water quality and will do best with moderate to strong water movement in the aquarium.

Sturio / Zorro Catfish (Platystomatichthys sturio)


One of the more unusual-looking Amazonian Catfish, the Sturio or Zorro Catfish is found in relatively fast-moving, turbid waters in the wild, where it uses its elongated and highly sensitive barbels to find prey. In the aquarium, they require well-oxygenated water and do best with plenty of water movement. Although predatory, they are fairly peaceful towards any tankmates too big to eat.

Common Pike Cichlid (Crenicichla sp. “belly crawler”)


One of the smaller species of Pike Cichlids, the so-called “belly crawler” is found in rocky, fast-moving waters throughout Colombia’s Rio Meta drainage. Like most species of Crenicichla, they are territorial and predatory but due to their relatively small adult size can often be kept in mixed species cichlid community tanks. This species is also more easily weaned onto frozen and prepared foods than some of its larger relatives.

Geophagus abalios


This colorful eartheater from the ‘surinamensis’ group of the genus Geophagus originates from the acidic, soft waters of the Orinoco Basin in Colombia and Venezuela. A peaceful cichlid, they generally do well in community cichlid aquaria with sandy substrate and lots of open swimming space. Like all eartheaters, they are highly specialized bottom feeders, using their downward facing mouths to inhale mouthfuls of fine substrate and then sifting it through their gills in order to pick out small invertebrates or other tiny prey. In the aquarium, they will accept a variety of sinking foods but will do best when offered a combination of small sinking granules and frozen foods like bloodworms, mysis shrimp, or spirulina enriched brine.

Umbee Cichlid (Kronoheros umbriferus)


Among the largest neotropical cichlids and a fierce predator, the Umbee (K. umbriferus) is popular in the hobby due to its aggressive and outgoing nature and beautiful blue/turquoise spotting. Best kept in a species tank or with suitable large dither fish, this active open water swimmer requires a large aquarium with plenty of open space. Wild collected specimens are particularly prized for their vibrant color.

Chinese Red Perch (Siniperca chuatsi)


A rare and colorful predatory species from the rivers and lakes of Central China, the Red Perch or Mandarin Perch sports beautiful red and yellow markings and an intricate pattern that becomes more pronounced with age. Care in the aquarium is similar to that of the datnoids or tigerfish, but Chinese Red Perch are able to tolerate much cooler temperatures as they originate in temperate areas.

Boesemani Rainbow (Melanotaenia boesemani)


One of the most popular rainbowfish in the hobby, the Boesemani Rainbow originates from remote lakes in Irian Jaya, Indonesia but has been bred for the aquarium trade for many years. A peaceful, loosely schooling species, this rainbow is ideal for most medium-sized community aquariums and is especially popular for planted tanks. For the best behavior and color, we recommend keeping these fish in groups of at least 5 or more.

Hognose Brochis (Brochis multiradiatus)


One of the largest species of Cory Catfish, the Hognose Brochis is found in shallow streams and lakes in the Eastern Amazon and Napo rivers in Peru and Ecuador. It is distinguished by its extremely long snout, which it uses to forage for food in sandy substrate, and by its bulky, heavily armored appearance. Like most Corys, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature. Because of their size, Hognose Brochis make for great bottom feeders or dithers in aquariums with medium South or Central American Cichlids or other predatory fish which aren’t large enough to try to make a meal of them.

Spotted Flathead Catfish (Platysilurus mucosus)


A rare, smaller growing predatory catfish from the Amazon, the Flathead Spotted Catfish is found throughout much of the middle Amazon, where it inhabits murky, fast moving waters. In the trade it is often mislabeled as P. malarmo, which is only known from Venezuela. With a maximum reported size of around 8-10″, this fish is much more suitable for the aquarium than some of its larger relatives.

Vulture Catfish (Calophysus macropterus)


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. Despite its relatively small mouth, it has a powerful bite and is thought to actively attack weak or injured larger fish in nature. In the aquarium, it has a well-deserved reputation for being aggressive and so it should only be kept with hardy, fast-moving tankmates.
