Apistogramma rupununi

The A. rupununi in this tank is the prettiest rupununi I have ever seen, spangles galore.

Acarichthys heckelli

I would love to keep a group of these little eartheaters, they get so pretty!


A voracious eater, striking pattern too! He is eating so much he is already noticeably larger.

Heros efasciatus

This was on my wish list. And I mistook it for a discus in my net! Fine specimen I got too!


Also a good eater gets a striking pattern on the tail as adults.

Brochis splendens

My only cories, not one has died in my tanks yet. Very fun little fish. They get so excited when I feed them!

Myleus sp.

This is a good eater too and one who has grown a lot since I caught it on the amazon.

Nannacara taenia

A very shy fish, but is starting to take tubifex worms. This is my first Nannacara and they are really entertaining!

Gymnotid eel

Unfortunately I don’t have a good picture of this unusual fish. It is very shy and only comes out at night. Very cool fish.
