    There are three species of peacock bass on the Agua Boa: the butterfly, spotted/temensis and azul. Like their namesake, the spot on their tail fins resembles the eyes on a peacock's tail feathers.

    Multiple species are available at Agua Boa: payara, catfish, arowana . . . yet peacock bass are the most prized.
