Silver Arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum)

$14.99$159.99

One of the larger predatory fish found in the Amazon Basin, the Silver Arowana is part of an ancient family of fish known as the bonytongues. A highly adapted surface feeder, Arowana are usually found close to the water’s surface in heavily overgrown areas with lots of cover. They are incredible jumpers, with adults able to leap several feet out of the water, and need to be kept in securely covered aquariums. Due to their enormous adult size, the Silver Arowana is recommended only for dedicated aquarists who can accommodate these giants in either a large custom aquarium or even an indoor pond. Specimens offered for sale are acclimated to aquarium life and feeding well on frozen and prepared foods.

Gulper Catfish (Asterophysus batrachus)

$39.99$89.99

With its prehistoric appearance and exaggerated, oversized mouth, the Gulper Catfish is hard to mistake for any other species. A voracious predator, they are amazingly able to consume fish even larger than they are. In the wild, they tend to inhabit deeper stretches of blackwater rivers, and their eyesight is relatively poor – relying instead on their sensitive barbels and sense of smell to find prey. Gulpers are relatively adaptable in the aquarium, but as a scaleless fish can be somewhat sensitive to water quality. Although they can be finicky eaters at first, they will quickly learn to accept frozen, protein rich feeds and even pellets.

Amazon Leaf Fish (Monocirrhus polyacanthus)

$19.99$34.99

An amazing example of mimicry in nature, the Amazon Leaf Fish both looks and acts exactly like a dead leaf as a sneaky way to lull its prey into a sense of security. When small fish venture too close, it extends its surprisingly large mouth and inhales them in one quick motion. In the aquarium, they make for an extremely unique display fish, especially in small groups. They are peaceful with nearly any fish too big to be eaten, but tankmates should be chosen carefully as fast-moving or aggressive fish can cause them stress. Although they are relatively hardy, feeding can be a challenge as they can be difficult to wean off live food fish or insects.
