Senegal Bichir / Dinosaur Eel (Polypterus senegalus)


The Senegal, or Common Bichir is the most widespread species of Polypterus in Africa, inhabiting shallow waters across a huge geographic area. This species is also the most common in the aquarium hobby and has been commercially bred in Asia for years. In the aquarium, they have been popular for many years due to their eel-like body shape, predatory nature, and unique appearance. A hardy fish, the Senegal Bichir or Dinosaur Eel as they are sometimes known require a large tank due to their adult size but are otherwise undemanding.

Myersi Pygmy Hatchet (Carnegiella myersi)


The smallest species of Hatchet and a unique addition to a specialty community or aquascaped tank, the Myersi Pygmy Hatchet is primarily found in slow moving shallow waters in the Peruvian Amazon. In the wild, they tend to inhabit clear, warm, slightly acidic water and unlike other hatchet species spend much of their time below the surface mid water column. A social, schooling fish, they will do best in groups of 5 (ideally 8-10) or more in the aquarium and require excellent water quality and peaceful tankmates.

Pygmy Talking Catfish (Physopyxis lyra)


One of the smallest species of catfish known, the Pygmy Talking Catfish is a unique and uncommonly imported Doradid found throughout the middle Amazon and Essequibo basins. In the wild, they are a cryptic species which inhabits leaf litter and driftwood piles in warm, extremely shallow water. In the aquarium, they are a hardy and unusual addition to a nano or small fish community aquarium. A scavenger and opportunistic feeder, they will accept most sinking frozen and prepared foods for very small fish.

Panduro Apisto (Apistogramma panduro) – Wild


The Panduro or Pandurini Apisto is one of the more attractively colored Dwarf Cichlids in the hobby, with mature males displaying a unique sky blue coloration. A hardy and relatively peaceful species, they are ideal for smaller aquariums and do best with ample cover in the form of plants, driftwood, and small caves.

Note on wild-collected Apistogramma sp.:
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.

Emerald Cory (Brochis splendens)


A large growing and colorful armored catfish, the Emerald Cory or Emerald Brochis has a wide range throughout much of the Amazon basin. Like most Corys, they are peaceful, hardy, and best kept in groups due to their schooling nature. Because of their larger adult size than most of their relatives, this species makes for great bottom feeders or dithers in aquariums with medium South or Central American Cichlids or other predatory fish which aren’t large enough to try to make a meal of them.

Snub Nosed Payara (Cynodon gibbus)


A smaller growing relative of the Payara or Sabertooth Barracudas found throughout much of South America, the Snub Nosed Payara is a highly adapted predator typically found in waters with moderate to strong current. With their unique, flattened body shape, they spend most of their time hanging motionless against the direction of the water flow, waiting for prey to drift by. They use lightning-fast reflexes and their namesake saber-like teeth to grab hold of their prey, which can be fish up to half their own size. In the aquarium, payara often require live foods – at least at first – and do best in well-oxygenated water with plenty of water movement.

L095 Orange Cheek Pinecone Pleco (Pseudorinelepis cf. genibarbis)


A large and distinctive pleco found in tributaries of the middle Amazon in Brazil, the L095 or Orange Cheek Pinecone Pleco is a rare and sought after species in the hobby. In the wild, it is usually found in sediment rich white water rivers close to large piles of driftwood or submerged logs. In the aquarium, they are hardy and adaptable, and unlike other large plecos they tend to get along well with others of the same species.

L354 Big Spot Polka Dot Pleco (Spectracanthicus sp. ‘L354’)


A rare and distinctively marked pleco from Brazil’s fast-flowing Rio Xingu, the L354 or Big Spot Polka Dot Pleco inhabits rocky shallows in the wild. Like most plecos from this river, they prefer warm, soft, well-oxygenated water. In the aquarium, they should be given plenty of shelter in the form of rocks, caves, or driftwood. A peaceful species, they will typically get along well in groups.

One Spotted Eartheater (Satanoperca lilith)


A large, peaceful cichlid found throughout middle Amazon tributaries including the Rio Negro and lower Tapajos, the One Spotted or Lilith Eartheater is among the more rarely seen members of its genus. In the wild, they inhabit, warm, shallow, acidic waters over areas of sandy substrate. Like all eartheaters, they are adapted to ingest mouthfuls of fine sand substrate and sift out small food items like insect larvae and crustaceans. In the aquarium, they tend to do best in groups and will coexist with a variety of similarly peaceful cichlids or other fish species, and they are generally safe even with much smaller fish.
