A unique schooling catfish found in the acidic blackwater streams of Borneo and Sumatra in Indonesia, the Shadow Catfish is a small-growing and peaceful species well suited for aquarium life. They prefer slightly soft water but are otherwise hardy and undemanding in the aquarium. Best kept in groups of 6 or more, these catfish will readily accept most prepared foods and are peaceful towards all tankmates.
The Red Fire Shrimp is a selectively bred form of Neocaridina shrimp very similar to the popular and common Red Cherry Shrimp. Like the Red Cherries, they are remarkably hardy and adaptable, excellent shrimp for beginners. Red Fire Shrimp have a uniform deep red body coloration.
The most colorful of all freshwater gobies in the genus Stiphodon, the Neon Blue Stiphodon Goby originates from fast moving rocky streams. In the wild, it lives in small groups where individual fish stake out their own territories among the rocks. They feed on algae growth and biofilms in the wild and in the aquarium should be fed algae or vegetable based sinking foods (gel diets are ideal). They require clean, well-oxygenated water with some current and will do best at slightly cooler temperatures than most tropical fish (74-76F).
A rarely seen species of Myleus (commonly referred to as Silver Dollars in the trade), the Sailfin Red Hook or Myleus setiger originates in the rivers and streams of Guyana and Suriname. It has only rarely been seen in the aquarium hobby, but adults develop extremely elongated, deep red dorsal and anal fins as well as a reticulated or blotchy pattern on the body. These tank-bred specimens from Asia are a new and rare offering.
One of the largest growing catfish species of the Amazon Basin, the Tiger Shovelnose is an important food fish throughout its range and has been a favorite in the aquarium hobby for decades despite its huge adult size. In the aquarium, they are fairly easy to care for but keep in mind they will attempt to eat anything they can fit in their surprisingly large mouths. Juvenile fish grow extremely quickly so to realistically keep these fish long term a massive aquarium or ideally an indoor pond is necessary.

The Red Fin or Johanna Pike is a large growing species found throughout much of the Amazon basin, where it tends to inhabit soft, acidic waters. Like many large Pike Cichlids, they are territorial and can be aggressive towards tankmates so any other fish in the aquarium should be chosen with care. With their large adult size and outgoing nature, they make excellent subjects for a species tank or in a suitably large display with other South American cichlids.
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.
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.
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.
