Habrosus Pygmy Cory (Corydoras habrosus) – Group of 10


One of the smallest species of Corydoras, the Habrosus or Salt and Pepper Pygmy Cory originates in slow moving shallow waters along the Llanos region of the Orinoco Basin in Colombia and Venezuela. This highly social species is usually found in large groups and should be kept in schools of at least 10 in the aquarium. Like most corys, they use their barbels to find food in fine, sandy substrate and will do best under similar conditions in the aquarium. Ideal for planted or shrimp tanks due to their small size and peaceful nature.

Glowlight Danio (Celestichthys choprae) – Group of 5


A vividly colored and hardy species of Danio originating in the shallow waters of Myamnar’s rivers and lakes, the Glowlight Danio has become a favorite in the hobby in recent years. An extremely active schooling fish, they do best in groups of 10 or more and prefer plenty of open space for swimming.

Rummynose Tetra (Hemigrammus rhodostomus) – Group of 10


A hobby classic, the Rummynose Tetra has been popular with generations of aquarium keepers due to its high contrast coloration, peaceful nature, and active schooling behavior. Their characteristic red “nose” is a good indicator of water quality as it will be most vibrant when the fish are healthy and in warm, slightly acidic water. Unfortunately, inbreeding and hybridization of this fish in the aquarium trade have caused many tank raised specimens to lose some of their best color; we offer carefully acclimated wild collected specimens that exhibit vibrant coloration. Best kept in groups of 10 or more fish, they make ideal inhabitants for medium to large planted tanks.

Wild Green Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon simulans) – Group of 10


A smaller but equally colorful relative to the popular Cardinal and Neon Tetra, the Wild Green Neon inhabits shallow, acidic waters along the Rio Negro and Orinoco in Brazil and Colombia. A peaceful schooling fish, they are best kept in groups of 10 or more, and will display their best coloration in warm, soft water in the aquarium. The addition of tannins to their water by products like Indian Almond Leaves or the use of natural driftwood will also help promote their most vibrant colors and behaviors. A great species for the smaller planted aquarium.

Amazon Otocinclus (Otocinclus cf. macrospilus) – Group of 5


One of the most popular aquarium algae eaters (and for good reason), the Oto Cat or Otocinclus is a small, schooling suckermouth catfish found throughout much of South America. There are several species commonly imported for the aquarium trade, but of these the larger, more robust species found in the Colombian Amazon (O. cf. macrospilus) is probably the hardiest and best choice for most aquariums. Safe for all planted tanks and compatible with any peaceful tankmates, the Amazon Oto will feed readily on diatom and other forms of nuisance algae in the aquarium but should be supplemented regularly with sinking veggie-based foods, gel diet, and fresh vegetables like zucchini or romaine lettuce.

Violet Spotted Woodcat (Centromochlus cf. reticulatus)


A unique and beautifully patterned driftwood catfish found in the Nanay and Amazon rivers in Peru, the Violet Spotted Woodcat sports a pattern of reticulated spotting on a background of pale violet, which can vary based on water conditions. Like most of its relatives, it
spends most of its time hidden among submerged logs and tree roots, emerging at night to feed. In the aquarium they are hardy and undemanding, but seem to do best in small groups.

Orange Zebra Oto (Hypoptopoma sp. ‘Peru Orange’)


A beautifully and distinctively marked relative of the common Otocinclus, the Rio Orange Zebra Oto inhabits Peru’s upper Rio Nanay, where it spends most of its time grazing on submerged driftwood and vegetation. An ideal algae eater for most community or planted aquariums, they will eat filamented algae and diatoms from most surfaces, including the aquarium glass. Like most of their close relatives, they are best kept in groups.

Black Ghost Knifefish (Apteronotus albifrons)


A long time aquarium favorite, the Black Ghost Knifefish is a distinctive and unusual fish originating from the Amazon and its tributaries. A nocturnal and generally shy fish, like all knifefish they use a weak electrical discharge to sense their surroundings and find food. Although slow growing, they can reach the impressive size of 14″ or more and tend to prey on smaller fish as they grow. Black Ghost Knifefish are intelligent, often learning to eat from their owner’s hands or even to allow themselves to be “pet” once adapted to aquarium life.

Natterer’s Knifefish (Sternarchogiton nattereri)


This extremely rare species of knifefish is found throughout much of the middle Amazon, where it inhabits mats of floating vegetation in low to moderate flow areas and feeds primarily on insect larvae. Adult males of the species develop a jaw full of huge, protruding teeth and were once thought to represent another genus and species entirely (Oedemognathus exodon). Males are thought to use these teeth in territorial disputes against other adult males, although the species is generally peaceful toward one another so long as they are provided with ample hides and cover.

Rio Nanay “Peru Altum” Angel (Pterophyllum scalare)


A distinctive regional variant of freshwater Angelfish, the Rio Nanay Angel is also called by the trade name “Peru Altum” although it is not the true Altum Angel from the Orinoco basin of Colombia and Venezuela. One of the characteristics that distinguishes this naturally occurring form of angel is its reddish or pink spots which become more prominent with age. A beautiful and unique fish, they prefer warm, soft, acidic water and are relatively undemanding in the aquarium.

Royal Clown Knifefish (Chitala blanci)


An uncommon and distinctive species of knifefish from Southeast Asia, the Royal Clown Knife is found in fast-moving waters of the middle Mekong. A predatory species with a surprisingly large mouth, they can easily eat fish up to 1/3rd their size in many cases. Despite their predatory nature, they are peaceful towards nearly all tankmates too big to be eaten.

Longfin Green Dragon Ancistrus (Ancistrus sp.)


A recently developed and sought after strain of the popular Bristlenose Pleco, the Longfin Green Dragon Ancistrus displays unmistakable greenish coloration paired with extremely long, flowing fins. Like all Bristlenose Plecos, they are exceptional algae eaters, grazing on diatoms and other nuisance algae in the aquarium. They are also plant and invertebrate safe, making them a unique and colorful addition to planted or aquascaped tanks.

Celestial Pearl Danio / Galaxy Rasbora (Danio margaritatus)


One of the most beautifully patterned nano fish in the aquarium hobby, the Celestial Pearl Danio, Galaxy Rasbora, or simply “CPD” as it is often known in the hobby originates in the shallow waters of Myanmar’s streams and lakes but are now commercially bred. The Celestial Pearl Danio is a peaceful schooling fish ideal for smaller aquariums and is extremely popular with aquascapers and planted tank hobbyists due to its vivid colors and small adult size. Hardy and undemanding, they will readily accept most flake or small granulated foods.

Atromaculatus Cichlid (Mesoheros atromaculatus)


An uncommon and smaller growing cichlid from the coastal drainages of Colombia, M. atromaculatus is one of the less aggressive species of its genus (although it is still very much a cichlid). In the aquarium, they are hardy and undemanding and will generally pair off as they grow. Provide ample cover as they will become territorial as adults.
