Leopard Candiru Catfish (Ituglanis amazonicus)

$24.99

A beautifully marked member of the pencil catfish family – more commonly known in the Amazon as Candiru – many of which are parasitic in nature, attaching themselves to the inside of the gills or other surfaces of larger fish and feeding on blood. In the aquarium, most of these species will readily adapt to a more conventional diet, and the Leopard Spotted Candiru accepts most sinking frozen or prepared foods. A shy species, they will typically hide during the day and emerge at night to explore and search for food.

Spider Kelberi Peacock Bass (Cichla kelberi ‘spider’)

$99.99 $74.99

With distinctive golden coloration and a much smaller adult size than other peacock bass of the genus Cichla, the Kelberi is among the most popular of these large predatory cichlids in the aquarium hobby. Originating from the rivers of Southeastern Brazil (including the Tocantins), these fish are popular food and sport fish in their native range. The so-called ‘Spider’ variant is a selectively bred color form developed in Asia which can be distinguished by their intricate, spiderweb-like pattern of spots and lines as adults. Like all peacock bass, Kelberis require very large aquariums and should only be kept by experienced hobbyists. They are powerful predators, and will eat any fish that can fit in their large mouths, so tankmates should be chosen with care.

L090c ‘Ojo Chico’ Papa Lyretail Pleco (Panaque bathyphilus)

$49.99$89.99

Found in the fast-flowing white water reaches of the lower Napo and middle Amazon rivers in Peru, the L090c or ‘Ojo Chico’ (‘small eye’ in Spanish) is an uncommonly seen species of Panaque distinguished by its large lyre-shaped tail and long caudal streamers. Juvenile Panaque schaeferi are often  improperly identified as L090 ‘Papa Lyretail’ as young fish of both species look similar but P. bathyphilus can be distinguished by a more ornate pattern, smaller eyes, and reddish tail fin. Reaching a size of about 14″, this fish is suitable for large aquaria and unlike some species of Panaque retains its attractive pattern and lyre tail through adulthood. Like their relatives, they are adapted for a diet consisting primarily of driftwood in the wild and should be offered plenty of driftwood in the aquarium. They will readily accept fresh veggies and specialty prepared diets like Repashy’s Morning Wood in the aquarium.

Red Shoulder / Rotkeil Severum (Heros cf. efasciatus)

$49.99$59.99

The Red Shoulder, Red Head, or “Rotkeil” Severum is a distinctive naturally occurring variant of the species known as Heros cf. efasciatus found throughout parts of the Middle Amazon and its tributaries. This strain has been popular in the aquarium hobby for many years due to its vibrant reddish-orange coloration and distinctive orange eyes. In its native range in Peru, it is referred to as “corbata” which has given rise to another common name for this fish – the “necktie” severum (so named for the stripe of red-orange extending from the gill plate to the top of the dorsal fin). While it has been bred commercially for some time, wild fish often display the most intense colors. Like most of their relatives, these fish are fairly peaceful for a large cichlid, and will usually coexist well in a mixed cichlid community composed of similarly sized semi-aggressive fish.

While we will make our best efforts to select male/female pairs for customer orders, sexing small- and medium-sized wild Apistogramma is not always exact and we do not guarantee a particular sex ratio. We recommend buying these fish in larger groups if a particular ratio of males to females is desired.

Ceja Ray (Paratrygon aiereba)

$329.99 $199.99

One of the more unusual looking freshwater rays, the Ceja or Manzana Ray is widespread throughout the Amazon and its tributaries, where it is usually found in sandy, moderately shallow waters with some current. They are specialized live fish eaters, using their oddly shaped disc to trap and eat entire schools of smaller fish. In the aquarium, they will almost always require live feeders as a diet but it is possible to wean them onto frozen feeds with time and patience. Due to their enormous adult size and challenging food requirements, this species is realistically only suitable for very large indoor ponds and should be kept only by highly experienced hobbyists or professional aquarists.

This species is not eligible for our 24 hour guarantee. We guarantee live arrival only.

Fowleri Cory (Corydoras fowleri)

$29.99

One of the larger and more impressive species of Corydoras, the Fowleri or Fowler’s Cory can be distinguished by its heavy body, long snout, distinct black patterning and iridescent green coloration. Found in shallow, sandy and rocky stretches of Peru’s Rio Ampiyacu, they do best in aquariums with plenty of open space and moderate current. In the aquarium, they are hardy and make an excellent addition to the lower levels of a medium sized community aquarium or with more peaceful South American Cichlids. This species seems to prefer slightly cooler water temperatures and should not be kept long term at temperatures much above 78F.

Tiger Silver Dollar (Metynnis fasciatus)

$19.99

One of the more distinctively marked species of Silver Dollar, the Tiger or Barred Silver Dollar originates from the waters of the Rio Tocantins and other nearby rivers in Eastern Brazil.
