A unique predatory fish found throughout South America, the Hujeta or Silver Gar is not a true gar but related to tetras and other characins.

They are fairly hardy fish, and will thrive in a variety of water parameters. Hujeta Gars are surface-dwelling fish, and will jump if given the opportunity so a tight fitting lid is essential.

A stream-dwelling cyprinid found in the shallow, rocky waters of China and Taiwan, the Longfin Banded Hill Trout is a unique and rarely seen schooling fish. Adults develop elongated fins and vibrant yellow and blue coloration, making them an attractive dither fish for medium to large cichlids or as centerpiece fish for a planted aquarium. They prefer slightly cooler, well-oxygenated water and enjoy moderate to strong current in the aquarium, so the addition of one or more powerheads or circulation pumps is recommended.

Humphead Carp (Bangana behri)


This unusual cpyrinid is found through the Mekong and its tributaries in Southeast Asia in fast-moving waters. While juvenile fish are not particularly distinctive, as these fish grow they develop a large, distinctive hump on their forehead (similar to the nuchal hump seen on cichlids). A grazer and omnivore, they will readily eat hair algae and diatoms, making them a useful as well as impressive addition to large predatory fish tanks. Best kept in groups of 3 or more.

Clown Loach (Chromobotia macracantha)


With their vibrant coloration and active nature, Clown Loaches have been a staple in the aquarium hobby for years. A schooling fish, they are best kept in groups of 5 or more as smaller groups of fish will be shy and rarely display their active, almost comical natural behavior. Clown Loaches inhabit a variety of different habitats in their native Indonesia, and will adapt to most conditions in the aquarium. As a carnivore with a fast metabolism, they should be fed often with a variety of prepared and frozen foods to ensure they are well-fed. Although they can grow fairly large, they are slow growers and it may take years for them to reach their full adult size.

Aba Aba Knifefish (Gymnarchus niloticus)


One of the more unique species of knifefish, the Aba Aba is found throughout much of Africa, where it inhabits shallow, slow moving bodies of water. While juvenile fish are often found in small groups, adults become solitary large predators which like most knifefish use a specialized organ to detect the weak electrical currents generated by other fish. In the aquarium, they tend to be extremely aggressive, often attacking tankmates at night. This combined with their huge adult size makes them best suited for a species tank.
