" is an omnivore. They can be fed with vegetables such as nettles, lettuce, spinach or carrots. Their diet can include meat; such as earthworms, blood worms or chopped shrimps. They will also eat prepared foods from a pet shop, especially sinking algae wafers. The best way to breed "Pterygoplichthys
" is to feed them with wide spectrum of food. With a good diet, they will grow quickly (up to 30 centimetres in one year). Adult "Pterygoplichthys
" may eat many aquarium plants.
is species of cichlid native to the Malebo Pool and lower parts of the Congo River in Africa. This species can reach a length of TL.
is a species of armored catfish native to Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela where it is found in the Orinoco and Amazon basins.
" shows all the characteristic features of its genus—a large dorsal fin with more than nine rays, prominent nasal flares and a prominent hump or crest anterior to the dorsal fin as well as a substantial base to the dorsal fin. Adult fish easily attain a length of TL and can live for more than 20 years.
In the wild these fish are found in shoals in sluggish rivers of the Amazon and Orinoco river systems, they also occupy flooded land during the wet season. During the dry season "P.
" will aestivate in burrows around 1 metre long dug into mud banks along the length of a river, egg rearing is also presumed to take place in burrow.
" has been bred commercially in fish farms in Florida and Malaysia for the aquarium trade. "P. multiradiatus" and "P. pardalis" are both known as common plecos and are widely sold as algae eaters. However, most of them grow too large to be housed in an average home aquarium. In fact, in the wild, the Common Pleco can well exceed 2 feet in length, and, as well as growing large, they also produce a lot of waste that can pollute the water.
First described and named by the French zoologist Achille Valenciennes in 1830, 'Chrysoblephus' means 'golden-eyed', while '
' refers to the bulbous forehead developed by adult males. Adults are territorial and solitary, and are found on offshore reefs at depths between 30 and 150 metres, the juveniles remaining in shallow water until mature at about 30 cm in length. Adults can grow to 75 cm long and a mass of about 9 kg, and have powerful molars used to crush food items such as redbait, sea urchin, octopus and crab.
Cuvier's dwarf caiman was first described by the French zoologist Georges Cuvier in 1807 as "Crocodylus palpebrosus" from a type locality described as "Cayenne". Since then, it has been given a number of names by different authorities: "Crocodilus (Alligator) palpebrosus" (Merrem, 1820), "Jacaretinga moschifer" (Spix, 1825), "Champsa palpebrosa" (Wagler, 1830), "Alligator palpebrosus" (Dumeril and Bibron, 1836), "Champsa
" (Natterer, 1841), "Caiman palpebrosus" (Gray, 1844), "Caiman (Aromosuchus) palpebrosus" (Gray, 1862) and "Jacaretinga palpebrosus" (Vaillant, 1898). Muller, in 1924, and Schmidt, in 1928, were the first to use the currently accepted name of "Paleosuchus palpebrosus". No subspecies are recognised.
(red roman) is a cold water, reef-dwelling endangered species of sea bream, closely related to the red Roman. This uncommon, exclusive and very expensive fish can only be found in Mosselbay, South Africa. The average price for a single fish is between 3000 and 5000 ZAR. It is endemic to the South African south and east coasts, ranging from False Bay near Cape Town to Margate on the Natal Southcoast. It is known as 'Miss Lucy' along the Port Elizabeth coast, and as 'Mighel' in the Knysna area.
"Pterygoplichthys" can be differentiated from most other loricariids due to their large dorsal fins with 9 or more (usually 10) dorsal fin rays, which gives them their common name "sailfin catfish". These fish have rows of armour plating covering the body; the abdomen is almost completely covered in small plates. Other characteristics of members of this genus include an underslung suckermouth, evertable cheek plates, adipose fin present, and an enlarged stomach connected to the dorsal abdominal wall by a connective tissue sheet. "P. anisitsi", "P. disjunctivus", "P. multiradiatus", and "P. pardalis" lack cheek odontodes, but still possess the evertible cheek plates; this was previously used as a trait to determine these fish as part of the genus "Liposarcus". Species of the "P.
" group (species formerly classified in the genus "Glyptoperichthys") are easily recognized by a large crest above the back of their skull.
This fish is extremely popular in the aquarium, due to its unusual appearance and its ability to eat algae; the bane of all aquarists. This and other related species are bred in ponds in tropical regions for the aquarium trade. In general "P.
" is peaceful towards other fish though territorial disputes arise with other plecos. Though not nocturnal they are more active at night and will spend daylight hours 'hiding' in a secluded location. Wood appears to be an essential part of this species diet—possibly as a digestive aid rather than for any nutritional value. As the fish grows big (up to 60.96 cm in the aquarium) a large tank with good filtration is required, in general these fish are tolerant to a wide range of freshwater conditions though prefer well aerated water.
