Flash Zebra Catfish (Brachyplatystoma juruense)

$99.99

A remarkably patterned, large-growing predatory catfish, the Juruense or False Tigrinus is widely distributed throughout the Amazon Basin, where it is a prized food fish. Although juvenile fish tend to be a drab dark gray with some striping, as they grow this fish will develop a striking pattern of black stripes on an off white or occasionally even cream-colored background, extending to the intricately striped tail. There is an enormous amount of variability in this species so it is extremely difficult to predict how young fish will develop as they get older. Juruense 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).

Mangal Alenquer Red Discus (Symphysodon aequifasciatus) F1

$89.99

Long considered the most beautiful of all freshwater aquarium fish, the discus remains a popular fish for serious hobbyists.

Wild discus like the Mangal red are sensitive to water quality and are best kept by experienced hobbyists, however their reputation for being challenging isn’t entirely deserved. 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. Discus are found in loose aggregations in the wild, and should be kept in groups of at least 5 in the aquarium (8-10 is ideal).
