Inca Stone Fish (Tahuantinsuyoa Macantzatza)

$29.99$99.99

An attractive, medium-sized South American Cichlid, the Inca Stone Fish is found in somewhat remote areas of the middle and upper Rio Ucayali in Peru. Superficially similar to the well-known Gold Saum and Green Terrors in the genus Andinoacara, these cichlids are unique enough to have been placed in their own genus, named for the Quechuan language word for the vast Inca empire, “Tahuanitsuyo” or “Tahuanitsuyu”. In the wild, they inhabit rocky, fast moving waters and are a hardy and adaptable species in the aquarium. With a maximum size of just under 6″, they are much smaller than some of their close relatives and a pair will generally be comfortable in a medium sized aquarium. Although they will breed in the aquarium, they can be challenging to spawn and remain an uncommon species in the aquarium hobby.

Emerald Dwarf Rasbora (Celestichthys erythromicron) – Group of 5 Fish

$29.99

A popular and attractively marked dwarf cyprinid, the Emerald Dwarf Rasbora is technically not a rasbora at all despite its common name and is in fact a member of the Danio family.

Banded Darter Characin (Characidium cf. fasciatum)

$4.99$9.99

One of many species of similar looking, tiny characins found throughout much of South America, the Banded Darter Characin (Characidium cf. fasciatum) makes a fascinating resident for nano or biotope themed aquariums. As their name suggests, these fish have a reduced swim bladder and spend most of their time perched on or just above the substrate, “darting” instead of actively swimming in most cases similar to a goby or blenny. In the wild they inhabit a variety of habitats but are usually found in areas with moderate to fast current and prefer well oxygenated water. A hardy and interesting fish, they are social and should be kept in groups.

Reticulated Hillstream Loach (Sewellia lineolata)

$12.99

Easily the most spectacularly marked of all the hillstream loaches, the Reticulated Hillstream Loach or Reticulated Butterfly Sucker is found in fast-flowing, rocky rapids in Central and Northern Vietnam. Perfectly adapted for life in fast moving waters, their heavily modified pectoral and anal fins form a suction-cup-like ventral surface that allows them to not only attach to almost any surface but actually move forward against strong current and even climb up sheer rock faces and waterfalls. Due to their specialized nature, they require fast, cool, well-oxygenated water not above 76F and strong current in the aquarium. They will readily feed on biofilms, algae, and certain prepared foods like Fluval Bug Bites Pleco Formula or Repashy Gel Diet. A social and outgoing species, they will thrive in groups of 5 or more and have successfully been bred in the aquarium.

Because of their small adult size and shy nature, the Scarlet Badis or Scarlet Gem is best kept with similarly sized, extremely peaceful tankmates.
