CORY CATFISH

Busy Bodies for the bottom of your tank.

Often found in shoals in large community tanks, they are beautiful additions that bring personality to the lower levels of the tank. Cory catfish are petite: between one and four inches in length. Because they are small and graze at the bottom of the tank, they don’t get in the way of quicker, larger fish in other regions. They are not aggressive and pose no threat to smaller fish. Cory catfish suck up food with their mouths and will not bite other fish intentionally or by accident. They are social in nature and are happiest when kept with at least three members of the same species.

PLECOS

So many cool kinds to choose from.

Bristlenose Plecos (sometimes called the Bushy Nose Pleco or Bristlenose Catfish) are incredibly unique and fun creatures that are quite popular in freshwater tanks. With their unique appearance and penchant for keeping algae at bay, Bristlenose Plecos (Ancistrus Cirrhosus in the Loricariidae family) are a great addition to any aquarium. They’re particularly popular among novice fish owners. These little critters are very easy to care for and can help improve the quality of the tank. Plus, they’re fun to watch! Some kinds of plecos that we carry in-store are as follows: Golden Vampire, Snowball Pleco, King Tiger Pleco, Orange Seam Pleco, Gold Nugget, clown Pleco, Super red Bushynose, Long Fin Gold Bnose, Blue Eye BNose, and more.  Call the store for an updated inventory.

 

 

LOACHES

So many cool kinds to choose from.

Loaches are a fun addition to any tropical freshwater aquarium. Generally, they are peaceful scavengers that spend their time rooting about for tidbits of food on the bottom. Many loach species actually prefer to be kept in schools, and some species will literally pine away with loneliness if kept alone. Popular loaches that we usually have in stock are Clown Loach, Kuhli Loach, Horseface Loach, Weather Loach, and Yoyo Loach.
