Local Fish


Hi folks. Looking for some neat fish for your planted tanks? Check these out. All have been through quarantine, and are ready for their new homes. Pickup only. Please email me to set up a time to stop by, or you can meet me at my job in Brooklyn.


Hansen's Tetra (Hasemania hanseni):$4.00 ea.
A fish from Brasil that you don't see too often. Reaches about 1.5” in length.



Savanna Tetra (Hyphessobrycon stegmani): $5.00 ea.
Another Brasil species.Colorful, peaceful, Reaches about 1.5” in length.


Ocelot Danio (Danio tinwini): $3.00 ea.
Reaching about 0.9" in length, this small Burmese Danio is perfect for small planted tanks. A schooling species, it's best kept in groups of six or more.


Celestial Pearl Danio (Danio margaritatus): $4.50 ea.
Another Burmese species, perfect for the planted tank as in nature it inhabits permanently flooded grasslands that support the growth of Elodea, Egeria and Blyxa (to list a few). Reaches 0.8" in length. Best kept in small groups.


Blue-banded Barb (Barbus fasciolatus): $5.00 ea.
An African species, hailing from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Reaches about 2.5". It's a shy species, but will show itself once comfortable with its surroundings. Best kept in small groups.


Golden Checkered Barb (Pethia canius): $3.00 ea.
A northern India native, this barb does well in a planted tank, although it may pick on soft-leaved plants. Often identified as Pethia gelius, but there are enough differences in morphology and patterning to warrant keeping it as a distinct species.

Stiphodon atropurpureus: $60/pair
These fish are from Taiwan, and will live in sub-tropical conditions. They inhabit clear streams and mainly feed on epiphyte and biofilm on rocks. Reaches about 2" in length. Good jumpers, so their tank must have a well-fitting top.

Peacock Gudgeon (Tateurndina ocellicauda): $10 ea.
These fish are captive bred in Indonesia. Reaches about 3". Peaceful, and tends not to bother tankmates.In nature, they form schools that hover over the bottom.

Stiphodon percnopterygionus: $45/pair
These fish are from Taiwan, and will live in sub-tropical conditions. They inhabit small, clear streams with rocky bottoms usually covered with dense mats or clumps of algae. Reaches about 1.5" in length. Good jumpers, so their tank must have a well-fitting top.

Sumatran Neon Red Goby (Stiphodon sp.): $10.00 ea.
A social goby that does well in small groups. Peaceful with other species.They inhabit clear streams and mainly feed on epiphyte and biofilm on rocks.

Sumatran Blue Neon Goby (Stiphodon simoni): $13.00 ea.
A wide-ranging species, these hail from Sumatra. They inhabit clear streams and mainly feed on epiphyte and biofilm on rocks.



Sparkling Pencilfish (Nannostomus nitidus): $20/6
This is a pencilfish you don't often see in the US hobby. Reaches about 1.5" in length. Does best in a heavily planted tank in groups of six or more.


Bumblebee Goby (Brachygobius nunus): $10/6
Reaches about an inch in length. Although it's found in brackish conditions in nature, it does equally well in full freshwater providing the pH doesn't drop too low. Does not appear to be nippy towards tankmates, but should be kept in groups of six or more. These fish are from India.

Mini Moth Catfish (Hara jerdoni): $4.00 ea.
What can I say? This is one cute catfish. Reaches 1.2" in length. Provide lots of hiding places. Even though it's a small fish, it's not a difficult feeder and will accept a good variety of prepared foods.


Burmese Mini Moth Catfish (Hara sp.)
Looks similar to Hara hara, but a bit more robust.



Moth Catfish (Hara hara): $5.00 ea.
With a face like that, how can you pass this one by?

Corydoras pygmaeus: $2.00 ea.

How often do you get pygmy cories and what quantity do you have now? I swore myself off doing anything until after finals

I'll just say that Frank is awesome. The fish I get from Frank are robust and vivid, he obviously cares about them. And you will turn green with envy when you see his fishroom.

I probably have about 15 left. I can get them on a fairly regular basis this time of year.

Hi Frank. Are these fish from the Taiwan order?

Would you also be able to separate male from female for our purchases?

I have not listed any of the new gobies from the latest Taiwan order. They are still undergoing quarantine and treatment. The only gobies I can sex are the atropurporeus and zosterophorum. The others will be hit or miss, especially the Schismatogobius ampluvinculus which are really small.

Probably best to PM me. Not sure what the rules are.

OK, I'm off to work. I'll be back around 1 am tomorrow.
