Concolor Cory (Corydoras concolor)


A large growing species of Corydoras, the Concolor or Slate Cory is found in softwater streams throughout the Orinoco and its tributaries in Colombia and Venezuela. Adult fish are dark black in color with highlights of bronze and green and a tall dorsal fin. Like most Cory catfish, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature. Because of their larger adult size, Concolor Corys 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.

The Black Band or Zygatus Cory is found in white and clear water streams in several upper Amazon Tributaries in Peru, Colombia, and possibly Ecuador. An attractive and active species, they are a deservedly popular Cory in the hobby. Like most of their relatives, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature.

CW045 “Armatus” Cory (Corydoras sp. “CW045”)


CW045 is an undescribed, attractively marked and large growing species of Cory with a distinctive tall body shape and somewhat variable coloration. It is sometimes sold as C. armatus although that species is found only in Peru and is easy to tell apart from CW045. Like all Corydoras, they are an active schooling species and will do best in groups of 5 or more in the aquarium. Due to their large adult size, this species makes a great bottom feeder and dither fish for some medium to large Central and South American Cichlids.

African Arowana (Heterotis niloticus)


One of the most unique fish in the ancient family of fish known as “bonytongues”, the African Arowana is widespread across freshwater habitats throughout the continent, where they tend to inhabit shallow river or stream banks close to reeds or other vegetation. They are the only fish in their family known to filter feed, sifting through sand and murky water for food items like tiny crustaceans and worms. In the aquarium, juvenile fish will require a steady supply of small food items like live brine or microworms fed several times per day. Larger fish, starting at 2-3″ in size, are usually much easier to feed and will take to prepared foods quickly. They are fairly peaceful fish in the aquarium, and will usually not harass tankmates. Like all Arowana, they are accomplished jumpers so must be kept tightly covered at all times.

Rubber Pleco (Chaetostoma cf. formosae)


Found in the fast-flowing, clear waters of Colombia’s Rio Meta and its tributaries, the Rubber Pleco is a hardy, popular species and among the most effective plecos for diatom and other algae control in the aquarium. In the wild, they are commonly found in rocky, shallow water areas and should be provided plenty of cover in the aquarium. They are enthusiastic feeders and will readily accept fresh veggies, Repashy gel diet, and other prepared foods designed for herbivores and algae grazers.

L330 Fully Spotted Watermelon Royal Pleco (Panaque cf. nigrolineatus)


One of the most beautifully marked of all Royal Plecos, the L330 “Watermelon” Pleco is found throughout the soft, acidic waters of the middle and upper Orinoco and its tributaries in Colombia and Venezuela. Like all Panaque species, it is a specialized wood eater and requires driftwood in its diet. They should also be offered a variety of other foods, including fresh veggies and specialty diets like Repashy’s xylivore formula gel diet. The L330’s pattern varies significantly, from fully spotted to primarily striped, with the fully spotted variant being the most sought after.

Black Pacu (Colossoma macropomum)


One of the larger fish in the Amazon Basin, and an important food fish throughout most of the its range, the Black Pacu is a beautifully marked “gentle giant” suitable for only the largest private aquariums, indoor ponds, or public displays. In the wild, this fish is an opportunistic grazer, which feeds primarily on fallen fruit and nuts from trees overhanging the rivers edge habitat where they are usually found. They are a hardy species, tolerant of a wide range of water conditions – but given their huge size and equally large appetite they will require significant filtration and regular water changes. The Black Pacu will accept almost any frozen or prepared food in the aquarium but should be offered a varied diet heavy in vegetable matter.

Giant Bumblebee Catfish (Pseudopimelodus bufonius)


An attractively marked, medium sized catfish, the Giant Bumblebee Catfish (sometimes also called Jello or Jelly Cat) is found throughout the Orinoco and Amazon basins. In the wild, it tends to be found in relatively shallow, slow moving waters – often buried in leaf litter – and is an ambush predator, feeding on small fish, insects, and crustaceans. In the aquarium, they are extremely hardy and undemanding fish, feeding on most sinking prepared foods. Like most catfish, they are nocturnal, and will spend most of the day in hiding so be sure to offer several hiding places.

Red Spotted Copeina (Copeina guttata)


A unique and rarely seen characin, the Red Spotted or Pink Copeina is found throughout much of the Amazon Basin where it inhabits shallow riverbanks and swamps. A larger growing relative of the more well-known Splash Tetra, these fish are active and outgoing fish that may bully smaller or more shy tankmates. They are best kept with larger fish and will do well with dwarf cichlids or larger characins. In the aquarium, they are hardy and undemanding, but likely to jump if given the chance so keep tanks tightly covered.

Gold Clown Knifefish (Chitala ornata)


One of the larger species of knifefish, the Clown Knife is found throughout much of Southeast Asia, where it is an important food fish. It is now extensively farm raised for food and for the aquarium trade. The Gold color form is a colorful line bred variety of the fish similar to an albino. A predatory species with a surprisingly large mouth, Clown Knives 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.

Paralaubuca harmandi


A unique and rarely seen Cyprinid found throughout much of Southeast Asia’s freshwater rivers and lakes, Paralaubuca harmandi is so poorly known in the aquarium hobby that it does not yet have a common name. A loosely schooling fish usually found in shallow water areas, they are fast swimmers and extremely active in the aquarium – like most schooling species best kept in a group of 3-5 or more. With their size and active nature, they make excellent dither fish for aquariums with larger cichlids or other predatory species.

Purple Wolf Fish (Erythrinus sp. ‘purple’)


The Purple Wolf (known as ‘shuyo morado’ in its native range) is a smaller species of wolf fish found throughout the middle Amazon Basin in Peru. A fast moving and aggressive predatory fish, they are likely to attack even larger tankmates and are best kept alone or with large, fast moving fish or heavily armored catfish. Smaller specimens can be shy at first and appreciate plenty of cover, and be sure to keep their tanks tightly covered as they are prone to jump if spooked.

Red Cetopsis Catfish (Denticetopsis sp.)


This smaller growing relative of the more well-known Blue Dolphin or Blue Cetopsis Catfish is found in the rivers and small creeks surrounding Iquitos, Peru, where it spends most of the day hiding among fallen logs and driftwood. At night, or when they smell food in the water, they are incredibly fast and active swimmers, engaging in a shark-like “feeding frenzy” behavior. Unlike their larger relatives which are known for taking substantial bites out of much larger fish, these catfish seem to be much more peaceful and will coexist with most similarly-sized fish. A somewhat social fish, they are best kept in groups of 5 or more.

CW009 Green Laser Cory (Corydoras sp. “green laser”)


The Green Laser or Green Stripe Cory is one of the most vividly colored fish in its genus, with an unmistakable fluorescent green stripe arching across its back. Known only from the Ucayali and Maranon rivers in Peru, two headwaters of the Amazon, it is unknown what purpose this unusually bright streak of color serves in the wild but in the aquarium it makes for a remarkable display. Like most Corydoras they are active, peaceful schooling fish that will display their best colors and behaviors in a larger group.
