Red Fin Johanna Pike Cichlid (Crenicichla johanna)


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.


Glass Headstander (Charax gibbosus)


A medium sized semi-aggressive characin found through parts of the Amazon and Orinoco basins, the Glass Headstander is a loosely schooling fish that in the wild preys on very small fish and may pick on scales and fins of larger fish as well. In the aquarium, they can be nippy but will typically do well with larger fast-moving fish. They will readily accept most prepared or frozen foods.

Gold Spot Bristlenose Pleco (Ancistrus triradiatus)


One of the first of the bristlenose pleco species to become popular in the aquarium hobby, the Gold Spot or Three Ray Bristlenose is found in rocky, clear water streams along the upper Rio Meta in Colombia and Venezuela. Like most bristlenose plecos in the genus Ancistrus, they are hardy and adaptable in the aquarium in addition to being excellent nuisance algae eaters. Adult males develop extensive ‘tentacles’ around the snout which gives this complex its common name. The species is easy to breed in the aquarium when provided with good quality food and maintained in good water quality.

Orange Spot Eel (Mastacembelus liberiensis)


A medium sized species of Spiny Eel known from Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia in West Africa, the Orange Spot or Liberian Eel is found in shallow, muddy rivers and streams throughout lowland tropical areas. In the wild, it spends much of its time buried in muddy or sandy substrate, using its specialized and highly sensitive nose to seek out prey. In the aquarium, they are a hardy species but will do best with plenty of hiding places as they can be shy at first. A slow and deliberate feeder, they can be outcompeted for food by fast moving or aggressive fish so tankmates should be chosen with care. Like all eels, they will use any opportunity to jump or crawl out of a tank so a tight fitting lid is essential.

Proteus Pike Cichlid (Crenicichla proteus)


A smaller growing pike in the saxatilis group, the Proteus Pike Cichlid is found throughout Peru and Ecuador where it inhabits shallow water areas with ample cover. Despite their relatively small adult size, they are aggressive and territorial much like their larger relatives. In the aquarium, they are a hardy species and will readily take to frozen foods. They can be successfully kept in groups but should be provided plenty of cover so each fish can defend its own territory. The addition of dither fish like larger tetra species can help diffuse aggression.

Bamboo Shrimp (Atyopsis moluccensis)


An large growing and unique freshwater shrimp found throughout Southern Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia, the Bamboo, Rock, or Waterfall Shrimp tends to be found in rocky, fast-moving streams where they use their specialized fan-like front arms to filter out particulate foods from the water. In the wild they are a common but cryptic species and can be fairly shy at first in the aquarium as well. They require clean water, regular feeding of small foods like frozen brine or very small granules, and plenty of cover in the form of driftwood, rockwork, or live plants to thrive. Due to their size, they are not generally at risk with peaceful fish tankmates and are generally compatible with a wide variety of invertebrate tankmates as well. In the wild, they are usually found in groups so while a single shrimp will usually do fine on its own they may benefit from being kept in groups.


Red Spot Gold Severum (Heros cf. efasciatus)

$44.99 $32.99

A selectively bred form of the popular Green or Turquoise Severum, the Red Spot Gold or Super Red Severum displays a base orange color with intense red spotting throughout the body and face. They are hardy, large growing and relatively peaceful cichlids but can be aggressive towards others of the same or similar species. Like all severums, they typically do well with most similarly-sized non-cichlid tankmates and in a large enough tank can be kept in groups of 5 or more.

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


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.

Panda Garra (Garra flavatra)


A popular and attractive scavenger and grazer, the Panda or Butterfly Garra originates from rocky streams in Western Myanmar, where it is found in loose aggregations. Wild specimens are almost never exported, and the species has been commercially bred for the aquarium trade for year. In the aquarium, they are an active fish and useful grazer that will readily eat diatom and other forms of nuisance algae. Hardy and adaptable, they are best kept in a group of 3-5 specimens.

L190 Royal Pleco (Panaque nigrolineatus)


The L190 or Royal Pleco is a large growing Panaque and probably the most well-known of the several species and variants known as Royal Plecos in the trade. Found in the Orinoco basin in Colombia and Venezuela, this distinctively marked pleco inhabits acidic water with moderate to fast flow. Like all species in the genus Panaque they are wood eaters by nature, and should be offered plenty of driftwood in the aquarium. Specialized diets like Repashy’s xylivore formula gel premix or Sera Catfish Chips are ideal for this species.


Lapradei Bichir (Polypterus lapradei)


The Lapradei Bichir is a widespread species, found in various slow-moving shallow water habitats in much of lowland tropical West Africa. A large growing and robust species, this Bichir is capable of reaching sizes of over 30″ in the wild. Polypterus lapradei is one of several so-called “lower jaw” group of Polypterus, so named for their distinctive heavy lower jaw that protrude over the upper lip. In the aquarium, they are hardy and undemanding like most bichir species, but should be kept with a tight-fitting and possibly weighted lid as they will attempt to jump if spooked or at night.


Costae Tetra (Moenkhausia costae) – Group of 5 Fish

$49.99 $34.99

A rarely seen and highly sought-after species of schooling tetra, the Costae or Blackline Tetra is found in the shallow reaches of the Rio Sao Francisco and its tributaries in Southern Brazil. An extremely active species, they form large schools or shoals in the wild as a defense from predation. In the aquarium, their fast-moving nature and unique tail stripe pattern adds flash and movement to the middle and upper levels of the aquarium which has made them extremely popular with planted tank hobbyists and aquascapers. A hardy species, they are tolerant of a wide range of water conditions but should be kept in a well-covered aquarium as they are likely to jump. As a shoaling species, they should be kept in larger groups, with 5 fish being the minimum (more fish are better if space allows).

Three Spot Eartheater (Satanoperca daemon)


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.
