    Striped Raphael catfish

    Striped Raphael catfish (Platydoras armatulus) is a catfish of the family Doradidae. It may also be called Southern striped Raphael, talking catfish, chocolate doradid, chocolate catfish or thorny catfish.[1] This peaceful, nocturnal species is a popular aquarium fish due to its pleasant temperament and curious nature

    Agamyxis pectinifrons
    Agamyxis pectinifrons, the spotted talking catfish, spotted raphael catfish or whitebarred catfish, is a species of thorny catfish found in the Amazon basin where it has been recorded from Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia and Peru. This species grows to a length of 15 centimetres (5.9 in) SL.

    Synodontis nigriventris
    Synodontis nigriventris are mostly nocturnal, and feed on insects, crustaceans, and plant matter.[2] These fish lay eggs.[2] The young fish do not swim upside-down until they are about two months old.[5] Adults swim and rest upside down in the water. They swim faster when upside down, and are more likely to be upside down around objects or at the water bottom. The more objects around the fish, the more they tend to swim upside down.[4] When close to an object, the fish puts its ventral side closest to the object.[4] It rarely swims in the middle of the water, preferring to swim either at the bottom or at the surface.[6] By swimming upside down when it feeds,[7] it can readily catch prey at the surface from beneath

    Iridescent shark
    The iridescent shark (Pangasianodon hypophthalmus) is a species of shark catfish (family Pangasiidae) native to the rivers of Southeast Asia. It is not a shark. It is found in the Mekong basin as well as the Chao Phraya River, and is heavily cultivated for food there. The meat is often marketed under the common name swai. It has also been introduced into other river basins as a food source, and its striking appearance and iridescence have made it popular with fishkeeping hobbyists, among whom it is also known as the Siamese shark or sutchi catfish. The swai's omnivorous diet consists of crustaceans, other fish, and plant matter

    Tete sea catfish
    Tete sea catfishes are occasionally available in the pet trade under a variety of names, including Colombian (or Columbian) shark, silver tipped shark, white tip shark catfish, black fin shark, Christian catfish, Jordan's catfish, and West American cat shark. However, they are not appropriate for most aquarists because they must be acclimated from freshwater to saltwater as they mature. It requires a very large tank due to its size and active swimming habits

Apistogramma brooding females assume a bright yellow and black aposematic coloring: in A. nijsseni, unusually, a healthy, unstressed female retains this coloring. The species is popular aquarium fish amongst dwarf cichlid hobbyists,[3] though it does not often appear in the general pet fish market.

    Ram cichlid
    The ram cichlid, Mikrogeophagus ramirezi, is a species of freshwater fish endemic to the Orinoco River basin, in the savannahs of Venezuela and Colombia in South America.[2] The species has been examined in studies on fish behaviour[3] and is a popular aquarium fish, traded under a variety of common names, including ram, blue ram, German blue ram, Asian ram, butterfly cichlid, Ramirez's dwarf cichlid, dwarf butterfly cichlid and Ramirezi.[2][4][5][6][7] The species is a member of the family Cichlidae and subfamily Geophaginae.

    The Fire Coral Eel

    The Fire Coral Eel originates from the reefs of South America. It is black in color with stunning golden spots covering the entire body. Like other Moray eels, it has a very thick body and will typically hide in the rocks with its gaping mouth out in plain view.
    It requires a 125 gallon or larger aquarium with suitable shelter to conceal itself until it becomes acclimated. In time, it will have its head out in the open, or will lie out in full view. The aquarium must be equipped with a tight-fitting lid to discourage escape. Caution must be taken with this eel, as it will eat just about anything that it can catch and fit into its mouth, including fish and invertebrates.
    The Fire Coral Eel's diet consists of live feeder fish, squid, and octopus, and may eat the other fish in the aquarium.

It has a unique appearance with its light gray to greenish brown body accented with scribbled orange stripes and adorned with a black tail. It is one of the larger of the dwarf angels typically growing to a length of 4 1/3 inches (11 cm), but a less demanding species with a good attitude. It is fairly active but tends to retire around the rocks or corals. It will however venture near the surface for foods when it is well acclimated.

    Black Nox Angelfish
    The Black Nox Angelfish, also known as the Midnight Angelfish, is uniformly black over its entire body.

    Black Widow Tetra

    Scientific Name: Gymnocorymbus ternetzi
    Origin: Rio Paraguay, Rio Guapore, Bolivia, Adult Size: 2 inches (5.5 cm)
    Origin/Distribution: Black Widow Tetras originate from the Guapore and Paraguay Rivers in Brazil. Originally it was only available as wild caught, but all specimens sold now are entirely captive bred, leading to a number of new man-made variations of this popular fish. Additionally, similar species have been described, including Socolof's Tetra (Gymnocorymbus socolofi) and the False Black Tetra (Gymnocorymbus thayeri). Both of these species are not as frequently available in the aquarium trade, nor are they as popular as the Black Widow Tetra. Habitat/Care: Black Widows are an undemanding species that will adapt to a range of conditions, though subdued lighting and neutral colored gravel substrate are preferred.

    Blue Gourami
    Scientific Name: Trichogaster trichopterus
    Origin: Malaysia, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam
    Adult Size: 4 inches (10 cm)
    Habitat/Care: Hailing from the tropical waters of the Far East, Blue Gouramis are one of the hardiest of the Gourami family. Their preference is for thickly vegetated waters of any type, and they can be found in ditches, canals, ponds, swamps, rivers and lakes.

    Bronze Cory
    Origin: Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Adult Size: 2.5 inches (6 cm).
    Habitat and Care: Undemanding, Corydoras aeneus tolerates a wide variety of water conditions. However, they prefer an acid to neutral pH, soft to slightly hard water, and temperatures in the middle 70's.

    Pelvicachromis pulcher
    Origin: Africa, Adult Size: 3-4 inches (8-10 cm).
    Habitat/Care: Water conditions: P. pulcher is an undemanding fish when it comes to water conditions, which is another reason it's so popular. It originates from the drainage area at the mouth of the Ethiop River, Niger delta, where a variety of water conditions exist. The water of the low-lying blackwater streams is acidic and very soft, while the delta waters are slightly brackish, more alkaline, and far harder than the streams that feed it.

    Tadpole snailfish

    Scientific Name: Nectoliparis pelagicus
    Size: to 2.4 inches (6 cm), Habitat: Deep Sea
    This tiny fish wiggles like a tadpole, with its large head and narrow tail. It's soft and flabby—loose skin covers its jellylike body. The snailfish makes a tender meal for other deep sea fishes.

    Midwater eelpout
    Scientific Name: Melanostigma pammelas, Size: to 7 inches (17 cm), Habitat: Deep Sea.
    An eelpout isn't really an eel; it just looks like one, with its long, thin body. It's frequently seen curled up into an "O"—scientists think eelpouts might be disguising themselves as a jelly to avoid being eaten. Midwater eelpouts were first discovered in Monterey Bay.

    Leopard shark
    Scientific Name: Triakis semifasciata, Size: 4 to 7 feet (up to 2.1 m), females larger than males
    Leopard sharks have a reputation for being docile toward people, says Manny Ezcurra, who has handled the Aquarium's leopard sharks since 1996. "But they're not so docile toward invertebrates and small fishes. We have to be careful about who we put in the exhibit with them," he says.

    Fanfin anglerfish
    Scientific Name: Caulophryne sp, Size: to 8 inches long (20 cm), Habitat eep Sea
    A fanfin anglerfish's glowing lure attracts fishes and other deep sea animals. For some animals, an anglerfish's light is a fatal attraction. For others, it signals a welcome feast. How does an anglerfish light its lure? It doesn't, exactly—special light-producing bacteria live inside the lure.
