L075 Para Pleco (Peckoltia sabaji)


The L075 or Para Pleco is found in fast-flowing, rocky rivers throughout the Xingu and other Amazon Tributaries. As a medium growing and attractively marked pleco, it is a good addition for a medium to large aquarium and is generally peaceful towards tankmates. The L075 will usually coexist with other plecos as long as ample hiding places and cover is provided. An omnivore, they should be fed a varied diet of both algae/vegetable based and protein-rich foods.

African Afer Knife (Papyrocranus afer)


This uncommon and beautifully marked knifefish is found in slow moving streams and lakes throughout much of Central and West Africa. It is fairly bold for a knifefish and can be aggressive toward some tankmates, so is best suited to an aquarium with similarly-sized fish. They will appreciate some cover in the form of driftwood or aquatic plants (live or artificial).

Mekong Goonch Catfish (Bagarius cf. yarrelli)


Among the most fearsome of all freshwater predators, the “Goonch” Catfish of the genus Bagarius have long been sought after by aquarium fish keepers with enormous tanks and a love for monster fish. Several species and variants of Goonch are found throughout the Mekong River Basin in Southeast Asia, and of these the Mekong or Thai Goonch (B. cf yarrrelli) are among the most suited for aquariums. These fish inhabit powerful rapids along the middle stretches of the river, near the Thai/Laos/Cambodia Borders and are found in almost tropical temperatures ranging from 75-78F, unlike the Highlands Giant Goonch from India which is found in much cooler waters. This species also tends to have the best track record in captivity, and usually thrives in suitably large aquariums with well-oxygenated, clean water and strong current.

Panda Loach (Yaoshania pachychilus)


The Panda Loach is an attractively marked small species originating from cool, fast flowing streams in Southern China. An algae grazer and scavenger in nature, they will do best in an aquarium with some current and ample rocks or driftwood for cover and grazing surfaces. Although they will adapt to warmer temperatures for a time they will do best at cooler temperatures (68-75) long term.

Diamond Sturgeon (Acispenser gueldenstaedtii)


Sturgeon are one of the most ancient families of fish on earth, and most species inhabit large river systems and lakes in subtropical regions. The Diamond Sturgeon originates from rivers throughout Eastern Europe and Central Asia, where it is threatened by overfishing. Fortunately, it is being commercially aquacultured and our specimens are farm raised in Florida. Although they can be kept in huge aquariums (at least temporarily), their huge adult size and active swimming nature means they are really best suited for ponds. A subtropical species, they are tolerant of cool (but not freezing) temperatures and should not be kept in temperatures exceeding the low 70’s. A rare and unique fish for specialist keepers.

“New Ranger” Pleco (Pterygoplichthys sp.)


One of the smallest species of pleco known, the “new ranger” is an as-yet undescribed species originating from the Nanay River in Peru. They are an excellent algae eater, feeding on many species of nuisance algae in the aquarium (including diatoms). Although small for a pleco, they are still substantial fish and should be given ample space and cover in the aquarium. Supplement their diet regularly with algae-based sinking foods, gel foods, and fresh vegetables.

Mbu Puffer (Tetraodon mbu)


Few freshwater fish are as immediately eye catching and engaging as the Mbu Puffer, an African species of true freshwater pufferfish found in the Congo River Basin. Intelligent, personable, but also extremely aggressive, this fish is a unique display animal and has a well-deserved following among keepers of large, predatory fish. They are relatively hardy and undemanding about water conditions, but with their often underestimated razor sharp beak they will typically finish off any tankmates over time. This species is therefore best kept alone. They are enthusiastic eaters and will learn to beg for food at the front of the tank quickly – the best food items for Mbu are protein-rich frozen feeds like clam, squid, etc. Their beaks grow quickly so frozen (or live) crayfish and other hard-shelled food items are an important addition the diet to help wear down their sharp beaks.

L034 Medusa Pleco (Ancistrus ranunculus)


A unique, oddly-shaped Loricariid, the L034 Medusa Pleco is distinguished by its flattened body and prominent fleshy tentacles surrounding the nose which gives them their common name. This pleco is found in the clear, fast-moving waters of the Xingu in Brazil where it inhabits rocky shallows. In the aquarium, they prefer clean, well-oxygenated water and ample hiding places in the form of rocks, driftwood, or caves. Although both males and females have extensive bristles on the nose, mature males are easy to distinguish as the bristles grow to a huge size. An omnivore by nature, they will readily accept veggies, sinking prepared foods like Fluval Bug Bites Pleco formula, or Repashy Gel Diet.

L177 Goldseam Gold Nugget Pleco (Baryancistrus xanthellus)


The most vibrant form of all the Gold Nugget Plecos, and one of the most brightly colored of all plecos, the L177 Goldseam Gold Nugget has been a popular aquarium fish for many years. Found in the rocky, warm, and fast-flowing Xingu and Iriri rivers in Brazil, these fish require somewhat specialized conditions to thrive in the aquarium and may not be the best choice for the average community tank. They will do best in warmer (80F+), well-oxygenated water with moderate to strong current, and can be shy if kept individually – keeping multiple fish together along with ample hiding places is best. Although they will eat vegetables and algae-based foods, they also readily accept frozen bloodworms and carnivore diets.

Golden Rose Mahseer (Tor douronensis)


The Golden Rose Mahseer is one of several large cyprinids from Southeast Asia collectively known as ‘Mahseer’ – most of which are prized food fish in their native habitats. Some species in the genus grow to truly huge sizes, but the Golden Rose (also known as Semah Mahseer) is among the smallest of these, growing to the considerable but not enormous adult size of about 15″. Their large, iridescent scales and peaceful behavior in the aquarium have led some to compare them to tropical versions of koi. Although hardy and adaptable, they will do best in clean, well-oxygenated water with moderate current.

Zebra Loach (Botia striata)


With its intricate pattern and active nature, the Zebra Loach is a beautiful and interesting addition to most medium-sized community aquariums. Generally peaceful, this smaller species of loach is a social fish and best kept in groups of 5 or more – single specimens may become shy and hide. In addition to their attractive coloration, Zebra Loaches serve a useful function for planted tanks, actively hunting down and consuming pest snails.
