Motoro Stingray (Potamotrygon motoro)

$174.99

One of the most widespread species of freshwater ray in the world, the Motoro or Ocellated River Ray can be found in almost every major river basin in South America. With their distinctive yellow or orange spots, it would be hard to confuse this species for any other. Although they grow to a fairly large size, Motoro Stingrays are generally considered to be the best “starter ray” for hobbyists looking to keep freshwater stingrays (although they are by no means a fish for beginners). Like all freshwater rays, they require perfect water quality, large, frequent water changes, and a very large aquarium. Recently imported rays may take some time to wean off live foods but will readily accept chopped earthworms or nightcrawlers right away.

Sabertooth Barracuda / Payara (Hydrolycus scomberoides)

$34.99$89.99

One of the most distinctive predators of the Amazon, the Sabertooth Barracuda or Payara is found throughout much of South America, where it tends to inhabit waters with moderate to strong current.

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.
