Mexican Dwarf Orange Crayfish (Cambarellus patzcuarensis ‘orange’) – Group of 3

$39.99

The Orange Dwarf Crayfish is a selectively bred form of a tiny dwarf species native to crater lakes in Mexico. While the wild form of this crustacean is normally an unremarkable grey or brown, this form has become extremely popular in the hobby due to its vibrant orange coloration. Ideal for planted or nano aquariums, they are plant and fish safe, and unlikely to harm any tankmates. As a scavenger, they will feed readily on most frozen or prepared sinking diets.

Giraffe Catfish (Auchenoglanis occidentalis)

$39.99

A gentle giant found throughout much of West and Central Africa, the Giraffe Catfish is a hardy and adaptable species with a distinctive spotted pattern. In the wild, it inhabits shallow, slow-moving areas of rivers and lakes where they use their large barbels to sift for food in the sand and mud. In the aquarium, they are undemanding and make excellent tankmates for similarly peaceful large fish.

Chocolate Cichlid (Hypselecara temporalis)

$19.99$39.99

An interestingly marked Cichlid found throughout much of the Amazon Basin, the Chocolate Cichlid (also sometimes known as Chameleon Cichlid) has been popular in the aquarium hobby for decades. As the name implies, they are largely a chocolate brown color but able to quickly change their colors and patterns into shades of green, tan, black, and red. Adult fish have vivid red colors around the face and gill plates. A fairly peaceful cichlid, they make an excellent addition to most large Central/South American Cichlid communities and will typically not bother any non-cichlid tankmate large enough not to be eaten.

Giant Bumblebee Catfish (Pseudopimelodus bufonius)

$34.99$39.99

An attractively marked, medium sized catfish, the Giant Bumblebee Catfish (sometimes also called Jello or Jelly Cat) is found throughout the Orinoco and Amazon basins. In the wild, it tends to be found in relatively shallow, slow moving waters – often buried in leaf litter – and is an ambush predator, feeding on small fish, insects, and crustaceans. In the aquarium, they are extremely hardy and undemanding fish, feeding on most sinking prepared foods. Like most catfish, they are nocturnal, and will spend most of the day in hiding so be sure to offer several hiding places.

L239 Blue Panaque Pleco (Baryancistrus beggini)

$36.99$39.99

A uniquely colored and small growing species of pleco, the L239 or Blue Panaque is not actually a member of the genus Panaque but instead is grouped in with the Gold Nugget Plecos and their close relatives. Found in the soft, acidic waters of the Orinoco and its tributaries, these are a hardy, relatively peaceful pleco. In the aquarium, a varied diet including plenty of vegetable-based foods is ideal.

Granulated Catfish (Pterodoras granulosus)

$39.99

A huge armored catfish found throughout many of the larger rivers of South America, the Soldier or Bacu Catfish is a unique scavenging species which feeds on detritus, dead fish, invertebrates, and even fruit in the wild.

Fahaka Puffer (Tetraodon lineatus)

$29.99$39.99

One of a few species of giant freshwater puffers from Africa, the Fahaka or Lined Puffer is found in freshwater rivers and lakes throughout East and Central Africa. In the wild, they use their powerful beak to feed on crustaceans, mollusks, and even other fish. In the aquarium, they feed readily on most meaty foods and will readily take bites out of their tankmates as well. An intelligent and fascinating fish for an appropriately large aquarium, Fahaka Puffers are best kept in a species tank on their own.

African Afer Knife (Papyrocranus afer)

$39.99

This uncommon and beautifully marked knifefish is found in slow moving streams and lakes throughout much of Central and West Africa. It is fairly bold for a knifefish and can be aggressive toward some tankmates, so is best suited to an aquarium with similarly-sized fish. They will appreciate some cover in the form of driftwood or aquatic plants (live or artificial).

Cuban Cichlid (Nandopsis tetracanthus)

$36.99

A large growing and aggressive Cichlid found in freshwater lakes and streams on the island of Cuba, the Cuban Cichlid is uncommon in the hobby but popular with cichlid keepers. With their high contrast black-and-white pattern, large adult size, and outgoing nature, they make for impressive display fish as adults. In the aquarium they are hardy and undemanding, but tankmates should be chosen carefully due to their aggressive nature. Other large Central American cichlids or hardy dither fish like Triportheus or Silver Dollar species are generally the best options.

Marble Sailfin Catfish (Leiarus marmoratus)

$27.99$34.99

A large-growing, active, and beautifully marked catfish, The Marble Sailfin Cat originates in the Peruvian Amazon. With their distinctive spotted pattern, huge dorsal fin, and extremely long barbels, they are a beautiful and active fish in the aquarium. With an adult size of around 24-28″, however, they require an enormous aquarium or pond as an adult. Tankmates should be chosen with care as they will eat any fish small enough to fit in their huge mouths.

Peters Elephantnose Fish (Gnathonemus petersii)

$34.99

One of the most unusual of the Mormyrids (a family of weakly electric fish found primarily in Africa), Peter’s Elephant Nose is found throughout much of Western and Central Africa, where it inhabits slow moving, shallow waters usually over muddy or sandy substrate. Their namesake snout is used to root through substrate to find small prey items. In the aquarium, they can be a somewhat finicky eater at first, but will usually accept frozen bloodworms, mysis, and other similar foods. Ideally, these fish should be kept singly as more than one Elephant Nose in the same tank are likely to fight. They should also be kept with peaceful tankmates to avoid bullying or the fish being outcompeted for food.

Habrosus Pygmy Cory (Corydoras habrosus) – Group of 10

$34.99

One of the smallest species of Corydoras, the Habrosus or Salt and Pepper Pygmy Cory originates in slow moving shallow waters along the Llanos region of the Orinoco Basin in Colombia and Venezuela. This highly social species is usually found in large groups and should be kept in schools of at least 10 in the aquarium. Like most corys, they use their barbels to find food in fine, sandy substrate and will do best under similar conditions in the aquarium. Ideal for planted or shrimp tanks due to their small size and peaceful nature.

Royal Farlowella (Sturisomatichthys aureus)

$34.99

A unique, stick-shaped Loricariid found throughout the Pacific coastal drainages of Panama, Colombia, and Ecuador, the Royal Farlowella can be found in a variety of habitats including fast-flowing streams and slow blackwater creeks. They are often found heavily camouflaged on or near stands of driftwood and in the aquarium should be given plenty of cover as well as open areas of substrate. A grazer and omnivore, they will do best when offered a varied diet of herbivore and carnivore diets such as Repashy gel diet, Fluval Bug Bites pellets, frozen foods and fresh vegetables.

Azul Peacock Bass (Cichla piquiti)

$24.99$34.99

With distinctive blueish gray coloration as adults, the Azul or Piquiti Peacock Bass is among the most popular of the large predatory cichlids in the aquarium hobby. These fish are popular food and sport fish in their native range. Like all peacock bass, Azuls require very large aquariums and should only be kept by experienced hobbyists. Azul 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.

True Pygmy Cory (Corydoras pygmaeus) – Group of 5

$32.99

One of the smallest species of Corydoras and an ideal, active schooling fish for the aquarium, the true Pygmy Cory is found in the middle to upper Amazon and Napo rivers in Colombia, Brazil, and Peru. In the wild, they are usually found in shallow white or clear water creeks with moderate current, and are a true shoaling fish which aggregates in groups of hundreds to thousands of individual fish. In the aquarium, they will exhibit this same ‘swarming’ behavior and constant activity if kept in groups of 10 or more. With their small adult size and compatibility with almost any other small fish or invertebrate, they are an extremely popular addition to planted and shrimp tanks.

Albino Threadfin Acara (Acarichthys heckelii ‘albino’)

$29.99

A new, selectively bred form of Acaricthys heckelii, the Albino Threadfin Acara or Threadfin Eartheater is a vibrantly colored variant, displaying red eyes and a deep red-orange body which increases with age, especially on males. A hardy and relatively peaceful South American cichlid, they will mix well with other eartheaters or medium- to large-sized peaceful cichlids.
