$149.99 $99.99

A stunning and extremely rare Anostomid found throughout Guyana, Suriname and possibly Northeastern Brazil, the Jewel Spotted Anostomid or Hypomasticus megalepis is a medium sized, peaceful characin. Like most of their relatives, they are a loosely schooling fish but show little aggression towards conspecifics and unlike many of the more well-known species of Leporinus or Anostomus, they do not have a tendency to nip fins. This species has a relatively small, somewhat delicate mouth for their size and prefers smaller food items like sinking granules or frozen bloodworms.

Panda Angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare)


A distinctive line bred form of the common Angel (Pterophyllum scalare), the Panda Angel is a popular variant due to their striking black and white pattern. Like all angels, they do best in a large, tall, planted aquarium with plenty of cover. As a cichlid, they can be moderately aggressive towards one another (especially as adults) but generally do well in a large enough group, usually 5 or more. Most other non-cichlid tankmates will be left alone but they will hunt and eat very small fish or invertebrates. Angels are somewhat sensitive to water quality so care should be taken to avoid large fluctuations in water conditions and partial water changes should be performed regularly.

Xingu Peacock Bass (Cichla melaniae)


Once rare in the hobby, the Xingu Peacock Bass, as the name implies, originates from fast-flowing waters of the lower Rio Xingu in Brazil, where they are popular food and sport fish. They are now being bred commercially in both Asia and their native Brazil for the trade. Adult C. melaniae are a powerful, heavy-bodied fish which display a vivid, almost uniform yellow coloration with a small horizontal broken bar of black spotting. Like all peacock bass, Xingus require very large aquariums and should only be kept by experienced hobbyists. Xingu Peacock Bass are powerful predators, and will eat any fish that can fit in their large mouths. They are best kept in small groups with similarly sized cichlids although aggression and territoriality can become an issue as they reach maturity.

Hairy Puffer (Pao baileyi)


A unique ambush predator found in the Middle Mekong drainage in Thailand, Laos, and possibly Cambodia, the Hairy Puffer gets its name from the ring of small fleshy tassels that surrounds its head. In the wild, they tend to inhabit extremely fast-moving waters, including powerful rapids, but spend most of their time partially buried in substrate where they wait for prey to swim above them. In the aquarium, they are best kept in a species tank as they are likely to attack most tankmates. This species has been successfully kept in pairs and bred in an aquarium setting.

Two Saddle/Weitzmani Cory (Corydoras weitzmani)


A rare and once nearly impossible to find species of Corydoras, the Two Saddle or Weitzmani Cory is a medium-growing species found in the Madre de Dios region of Southern Peru. Like all Corys, it is a schooling species and is best kept in groups. In the wild, they use their sensitive barbels to sift for food particles in the sand and should be kept on fine substrate in the aquarium. This species is hardy and undemanding but does prefer slightly cooler temperatures than some other tropical fish (71-76F).

Peruvian Flag Cichlid/Festivum (Mesonauta mirificus)


An attractive, relatively peaceful medium-growing cichlid, the Peru Festivum or Flag Cichlid is found throughout the Nanay and Itaya rivers in the Peruvian Amazon. Like most of its relatives in the genus Mesonauta, they tend to be found close to the water’s surface in slower-moving areas with lots of overhanging vegetation and often live alongside Angels. In the wild, a large amount of their diet is made up of fruit and nuts that fall into the water from overhanging trees but will accept almost any prepared or frozen foods in the aquarium.

Thermometer Knifefish (Gymnorhamphichthys hypostomus)


A strange elongated knifefish found through much of the middle Amazon, the Thermometer Knife is a sand dweller, spending much of its time buried in fine sand with just its head visible above the surface. They use their long, sensitive snouts and sensitivity to electrical impulses to find small prey items like worms, insect larvae, and crustaceans buried in the substrate. In the aquarium, they are hardy fish but can easily be outcompeted for food by faster or more aggressive tankmates so are best kept in a species tank or with other peaceful, slow moving species. Like all knifefish, they are primarily active at night but will occasionally emerge during the day to forage and explore. Although two species in the genus Gymnorhamphichthys are often referred to as “thermometer knife”, G. hypostomus is the more commonly seen species in the trade.

Two Toed Amphiuma (Amphiuma means)

A strange, primitive species of aquatic salamander, the Two-toed Amphiuma is found in shallow, swampy habitat throughout much of the Southeastern US. Eel-like in appearance and behavior, they have 2 tiny front limbs, no rear legs, and largely useless eyes, instead using their lateral line and sense of smell to navigate and find prey. They should be kept in a fully aquatic setup with hiding places like driftwood or caves, and like all amphibians they require excellent water quality. Tanks should be tightly covered as they can climb or jump out if allowed to.

Albino Sterlet (Acipenser ruthenus)


The  rare and impressive albino form of the Sterlet Sturgeon (A. ruthenus) is new to the aquarium and pond hobby, having been line bred by specialized farms in Europe.

A hardy fish, like most sturgeon they prefer clean, well-oxygenated water and cooler temperatures and are quite comfortable with temperatures as low as the low 50’s.

Peru Sailfin Tetra (Crenuchus spilurus)


A beautiful tetra from the acidic blackwaters of the Rio Nanay in Peru, the Sailfin Tetra is a medium-sized species that makes for an impressive display fish as an adult. Both sexes have the namesake large dorsal fin, but mature males will have an extremely elongated, brightly colored fin. In the wild, they tend to be found in small groups in shallow waters, usually in areas with substantial cover in the form of leaf litter, fallen branches, or other vegetation. In the aquarium, they can be shy at first but will quickly become more bold if given plenty of cover. A great and showy fish for densely planted or hardscape tanks.
