  • Tank Size: Provide a spacious tank of at least 75 gallons or more, as Uarus can grow quite large.

  • Tank Setup: Use soft sand as substrate and incorporate driftwood, rocks, and plants to create hiding spots and territories. Uarus appreciate a well-aquascaped environment.

  • Water Parameters: Aim for a pH around 6.0 to 7.5, temperature between 76°F to 82°F (24°C to 28°C), and water hardness of 2 to 15 dGH.

  • Diet: Uarus are omnivores. Offer them a varied diet of high-quality pellets, flakes, vegetables, and live or frozen foods like brine shrimp and bloodworms.

  • Tank Mates: Choose tank mates carefully, as Uarus can be territorial. They generally do well with larger, peaceful cichlids and other large, non-aggressive fish.

  • Social Behavior: Uarus are social but can become aggressive during breeding or territorial disputes. It's recommended to keep them in pairs or small groups to distribute aggression.

To maintain the highest quality, all fish undergo a one-week quarantine upon arriving at our warehouse before being made available for sale. This practice helps ensure the health and well-being of the fish we offer to our customers.

Live aquatic life is exclusively shipped on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays. If an order is placed between Wednesday and Sunday, it will be held until the following Monday, unless overnight shipping is selected. This schedule might change due to holidays or other unforeseen circumstances.


As with all live animal sales, there is a risk that they may arrive dead (DOA). If this is the case then a picture of the dead fish WITHIN THEIR ORIGINAL UN-OPEN BAG must be sent to us. 

If the fish die anytime after they are released into their tank, that responsibility falls on the owner and no refund can be provided. 

Furthermore, to qualify for the Live Arrival Guarantee, you must be present to receive the fish during the first delivery attempt. If you will not be home for delivery we suggest you arrange for the delivery service to hold your package at their facility for pickup, allowing the package to sit on your porch in extreme hot or cold weather is obviously not the best option for your new aquatic life.
