Umbee Cichlid (Kronoheros umbriferus)

$29.99$49.99

Among the largest neotropical cichlids and a fierce predator, the Umbee (K. umbriferus) is popular in the hobby due to its aggressive and outgoing nature and beautiful blue/turquoise spotting. Best kept in a species tank or with suitable large dither fish, this active open water swimmer requires a large aquarium with plenty of open space. Wild collected specimens are particularly prized for their vibrant color.

An algae grazer and herbivore, these fish are found in clear, well-oxygenated waters and will do best with some current. Due to their huge adult size, this fish is best suited for temperate ponds, and often kept with koi or goldfish.

L257 Tiger Pleco (Pseudolithoxus tigris)

$44.99

A rare and attractively marked pleco found in sandy, fast-moving stretches of the middle to upper Orinoco river in Colombia and Venezuela, the Tiger Pleco is very uncommon in the aquarium trade and hobby. Like its relatives, this pleco prefers clean, well-oxygenated water and will do best with moderate water movement or current. They should be fed a varied diet of sinking prepared foods and fresh veggies in the aquarium.  

Adonis Pleco (Acanthicus adonis)

$44.99

One of the largest and most impressive plecos, Acanthicus adonis is found throughout much of the middle Amazon and Tocantins river basins in South America. With their heavy armor, sharp spines, and huge adult size, this pleco is a true monster fish and adults are suitable only for the largest aquariums. They are slow growers however, often taking years to reach a significant size.

Burmese Clouded Archer (Toxotes blythii)

$39.99$44.99

One of the true freshwater species of archerfish, the Burmese Clouded Archer is by far the most beautiful species in its genus. Found on the lower reaches of the Salween River in Southern Myanmar (Burma) along the Thai border, these fish inhabit shallow, clear waters far from the coast. As with all archerfish, this species has the remarkable ability to shoot bursts of water at insects above the water’s surface – which make up the majority of their diet. Care in the aquarium is relatively straightforward, but it is important to remember that like most archerfish they can be hesitant to feed at first, especially if kept with aggressive feeders like cichlids. Most can easily be trained onto prepared foods by offering live feeder insects and floating pellets at the same time, and clouded archers will generally wean onto frozen and prepared diets quickly. We offer specimens well acclimated to aquarium life and feeding on a variety of different prepared (non-live) items.

 

Red Eye Lyretail Pleco (Lasiancistrus heteracanthicus)

$39.99

An unusual pleco found in parts of the upper Amazon river in Peru, the Red Eye Lyretail Pleco tends to be found in fast moving water but little else is known about its habits in the wild. In the aquarium, they are hardy and outgoing for a pleco, and will accept a wide range of foods from Repashy gel diet to sinking wafers.

Hampala Barb (Hampala macrolepidota)

$39.99

A large growing schooling fish found in clear, fast-moving waters in Thailand and Myanmar, the Hampala or Sidebar barb is a predatory but relatively peaceful barb. In the aquarium, they make an excellent dither fish for other large predatory fish and will do best with some water movement and frequent large water changes. Like many larger barbs, they can be skittish and first and will do best in a group of 3-5 fish. Some cover in the form of driftwood or artificial plants (live ones will be eaten) will help them settle into the aquarium environment.

Three Spot Eartheater (Satanoperca daemon)

$9.99$39.99

A stunning large-growing, and peaceful cichlid found throughout many of the blackwater tributaries of the Rio Orinoco and Rio Negro in Colombia and Brazil, the Three Spot or Demon Eartheater is among the most striking fish in its family. 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. These fish are exclusively found in acidic waters in the wild and generally do best in soft, warm water (pH 6.5 or below, temperatures of 80+) and appreciate the addition of tannins to their water by way of botanicals like Indian Almond Leaves or similar.
