Pignose Puffer (Pao suvattii)


A highly adapted ambush predator found in the fast-flowing waters of the middle Mekong, the Pignose or Arrowhead Puffer spends most of its time buried in sandy or silty substrate in the wild. Its upward facing mouth and excellent vision allow it to lie in wait for other fish or invertebrates to pass overhead, striking almost instantaneously to take a bite of the unprotected underbelly with their sharp beaks. In the aquarium they are interesting if not particularly active fish, best kept in a species tank. Any tankmates are generally at risk of being eaten.

Red Spot Puffer (Pao abei)


A unique and rarely seen freshwater puffer from the Greater Mekong Basin in Thailand and Cambodia, the Red Spot Puffer (formerly known as Tetraodon abei) is typically found in shallow water habitat with significant plant coverage. Like most puffers, they use their sharp, powerful beaks to hunt and eat insects, molluscs, and crustaceans. In the aquarium, they are undemanding and can generally be kept together but as with all puffers any tankmates can be risky.

Apistogramma macmasteri ‘Tame’


A beautiful wild form of the popular Apistogramma macmasteri, this peaceful and active dwarf cichlid is found in blackwater creeks and extreme shallow waters around the Rio Arauca in Colombia. A hardy and undemanding species, males will develop vivid red and yellow patches on the ventral and caudal fins when mature.

A note on wild Apistogramma: Unless otherwise specified, wild Apistogramma are sold as unsexed individuals. We will make our best efforts to send pairs or a requested ratio of male to female but we do not guarantee sex on these fish. We recommend buying in groups to ensure adequate males and females for breeding.

L193 Black Devil Pleco (Acanthicus sp. L193)


A giant growing and extremely impressive pleco, the L193 Black Devil Pleco is found in the middle Orinoco and its tributaries in Colombia and Venezuela. With their heavy armor, sharp spines, and huge adult size, this pleco is a true monster fish and adults are suitable only for the largest aquariums. Like most of the genus, they are aggressive and not at all shy, often spending time swimming in open water. They prefer fast-flowing, well-oxygenated water and will do best in a tank with ample open space along with caves and hides to provide territory.

Zaire Green Bichir (Polypterus retropinnis)


A medium sized member of the so-called “upper jaw” complex of Polypterus, the Zaire Green Bichir is a relatively new species to the trade which after examination by scientists was determined to be the true P. retropinnis (while most specimens in the trade sold as P. retropinnis before this were actually the newly described species P. mokelembebe). Originating from moderate to fast-flowing waters in the Congo River basin in Central Africa, they are hardy and undemanding like most bichir species but should be kept with a tight-fitting and possibly weighted lid as they will attempt to jump if spooked or at night.

Guinean Bichir (Polypterus ansorgii)


An exceptionally rare, large growing Polypterus found in the waters of Guinea and possibly Guinea-Bisseau, the Guinean Bichir is distinguished by irregular dark markings, a tall dorsal fin, and 12-15 dorsal finlets extending to the rear of the pectoral fins. In most specimens, the upper and lower jaw are of equal length, although very large adults may have a slightly protruding lower jaw. In the aquarium, they are hardy and undemanding like most bichir species, but should be kept with a tight-fitting and possibly weighted lid as they will attempt to jump if spooked or at night. Due to their very large adult size they require an enormous aquarium or indoor pond when full grown.

Teugelsi Bichir (Polypterus teugelsi)


A medium sized member of the so-called “upper jaw” complex of Polypterus, the Teugelsi Bichir is found in the Cross River and its tributaries in Cameroon and Nigeria in West Africa. More slender and with a darker, more contrasting pattern than the similar P. retropinnis, this species is now being bred commercially in Southeast Asia. Like most Bichir species, they are hardy and undemanding like but should be kept with a tight-fitting and possibly weighted lid as they will attempt to jump if spooked or at night

Note on Origin: Small and Medium sized Teugelsi Bichirs in most cases are aquacultured in Asia while larger sizes are wild collected from Cameroon.

L260 Queen Arabesque Pleco (Hypancistrus sp. ‘L260’)


With their intricate black and white pattern, the L260 Queen Arabesque Pleco is one of the most striking of the Hypancistrus and has been popular in the hobby for decades. These fish originate in the clear waters of the Rio Tapajos in Brazil, where they inhabit rocky, fast-moving shallows. In the aquarium, they are hardy and will feed on a variety of sinking foods but should be given plenty of protein rich foods like Repashy’s insectivore gel diets.

L333 Yellow King Tiger Pleco (Hypancistrus sp. L333)


One of several strikingly marked black and white species from the Rio Xingu in Brazil, the L333 or Yellow King Tiger Pleco inhabits rocky areas of warm, fast-moving water. In the aquarium, they need excellent water quality and do best when provided lots of cover in the form of caves or driftwood. A carnivore, they should be fed protein rich foods like frozen bloodworms, carnivore pellets, or gel diets.

L398 Pleco (Panaqolus tankei)


A beautifully marked “tiger” pleco of the genus Panaqolus, the L398 was only recently described scientifically as P. tankei. Originating from the clear, fast-moving waters of the lower Xingu, L398 tends to be found in and around sunken trees and large patches of driftwood in the wild. Like its close relatives, it is a wood eater (xylivore) and in the aquarium should be provided with ample driftwood as well as other nutritious sinking foods like Repashy’s xylivore formula gel diet.

L134 Imperial Tiger / Leopard Frog Pleco (Peckoltia compta)


One of the most attractively patterned and sought after members of its genus, the Leopard Frog or Imperial Tiger Pleco is found in the clear waters of the Rio Tapajos and its tributary the Rio Jamanxim in Brazil. Both of these rivers are fairly fast moving but these fish are often found in relatively shallow, still water areas, usually in and around crevices in rocks. An omnivore and grazer, these fish do best when offered a protein rich diet like Repahsy insectivore gel diet or other high quality sinking foods. This species is a cave spawner and will breed in the aquarium if given the proper conditions.

L141 Ghost Pleco (Ancistomus snethlageae)


A uniquely marked species of Ancistomus, the L141, L215 or Ghost Pleco is found in rocky and sandy stretches of the middle Tapajos in Brazil, where it inhabits warm, clear, shallow waters. A bold and outgoing species, they are omnivores with a slight preference toward protein rich foods such as insect larvae or crustaceans in the wild. In the aquarium, they are a hardy species that will do best in well-oxygenated, warm water with moderate to strong current.

True Pygmy Cory (Corydoras pygmaeus) – Group of 10


One of the smallest species of Corydoras and an ideal, active schooling fish for the aquarium, the true Pygmy Cory is found in the middle to upper Amazon and Napo rivers in Colombia, Brazil, and Peru. In the wild, they are usually found in shallow white or clear water creeks with moderate current, and are a true shoaling fish which aggregates in groups of hundreds to thousands of individual fish. In the aquarium, they will exhibit this same ‘swarming’ behavior and constant activity if kept in groups of 10 or more. With their small adult size and compatibility with almost any other small fish or invertebrate, they are an extremely popular addition to planted and shrimp tanks.
