Red Banded Leporinus (Synaptolaemus latofasciatus)


A rare and vividly colored characin found throughout several major river systems in South America, the Red Banded Leporinus is a loose schooling species similar to the more well-known banded Leporinus (L. fasciatus). In the wild, they tend to inhabit moderate to fast moving acidic waters. With a maximum size of only 5-6″, they are a smaller and more manageable species for most aquariums than some of the larger Leporinus and Anostomus species but general care and behavior in the aquarium is similar.

L114 Leopard Cactus Pleco (Pseudacanthicus cf. leopardus)


A beautifully patterned cactus pleco known only from a tributary of Brazil’s Rio Negro, the Leopard Cactus Pleco inhabits warm, acidic blackwater areas in the wild. In the aquarium, they are hardy and adaptable, but will do best in relatively soft water and when given plenty of driftwood or other hides. A mainly carnivorous species, they should be offered protein-rich foods like Repashy Gel Diets or Fluval Bug Bites.

Dorado (Salminus hilarii)


A large predatory shoaling fish, the Dorado is an important food fish throughout its range in the Southern Amazon and Paraguay river basins where it is found in a wide variety of habitats. Typically found in clear, fast-moving, well-oxygenated water, these fish are powerful, active swimmers and require an enormous tank or ideally an indoor pond to maintain adult fish. A fast and aggressive fish by nature, tankmates should be chosen carefully.

Centipede Knifefish (Steatogenys duidae)


A peaceful and cryptic knifefish species, the Centipede or Sierra Knife is found throughout much of the Amazon basin where it is found in shallow water areas, usually among leaf litter. They feed on insect larvae and crustaceans in the wild but in the aquarium usually take to frozen foods very quickly. A social species, they are best kept in groups in the aquarium and should be provided with plenty of cover in the form of driftwood and leaf litter.

Albino Red Pacu (Piaractus brachypomum ‘albino’)


One of the larger fish in the Amazon Basin, and an important food fish throughout most of the its range, the Red Belly Pacu is a beautifully marked “gentle giant” suitable for only the largest private aquariums, indoor ponds, or public displays. In the wild, this fish is an opportunistic grazer, which feeds primarily on fallen fruit and nuts from trees overhanging the rivers edge habitat where they are usually found. They are a hardy species, tolerant of a wide range of water conditions – but given their huge size and equally large appetite they will require significant filtration and regular water changes. The Red Pacu will accept almost any frozen or prepared food in the aquarium but should be offered a varied diet heavy in vegetable matter. The Albino morph of this fish only recently entered the market from commercial farms where they are raised primarily as food fish.

Orange Congo Puffer (Tetraodon miurus ‘orange’)


A unique true freshwater puffer found throughout much of Central Africa’s Congo River Basin, the Orange Miurus or Orange Congo Puffer is a uniquely adapted ambush predator best suited to a species-only aquarium. In the wild, they tend to inhabit fast-moving stretches of water with sandy substrate, where they bury themselves with only their upward-facing eyes and mouth visible. They wait in this position for potential prey items to swim overhead, and then dart upwards, using their sharp beak to tear into their prey (which can include much larger fish). In the aquarium, they will display this same behavior which is why tankmates, even larger fish, are not recommended. A relatively hardy fish, they do best in clean, neutral or slightly alkaline well-oxygenated water with some current. Most Congo Puffers are a tan or beige, but the much rarer orange variant is unmistakable and sought after in the hobby.

Myersi Basketmouth Cichlid (Caquetaia myersi)


A unique predatory cichlid found in Western Amazon tributaries, the Myersi Cichlid or Myersi Basketmouth is one of several closely related species which use their long, extendable jaws to ambush and inhale smaller fish. In the aquarium, they are hardy and will readily accept prepared foods but care should be taken to ensure smaller tankmates aren’t at risk of being eaten. A typically territorial cichlid, they are not overly aggressive in most cases and make a unique addition to a mixed species cichlid community tank.

Peru Black Cory (Corydoras semiaquilus)


One of the larger and more impressive species of Corydoras, the Peru Black Cory is similar to the more well known C. fowleri but have more solid black coloration throughout the body. Found in shallow, sandy and rocky stretches of Peru’s Rio Tahuayo, 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.

Wild Oscar (Astronotus ocellatus) – Ilha do Marajo Locale


A wild form of the aquarium hobby classic, the Oscar found at the mouth of the Amazon around the ‘Ilha do Marajo’ (Marajo Island) is distinctly patterned and among the reddest wild forms in the hobby. As with all Oscars, these are a large growing and predatory fish that require large aquariums as adults. Feeding a varied diet of high quality prepared and frozen foods will help ensure their best colors as they grow.
