Question Amazon Invertebrates

I dont think any exist from my research, but does anyone know of invertebrates from the amazon river or really any south american river area. Im creating an amazon biotope and am curious.

A lot of apple snails, particularly Pomacea haustrum and Pomacea maculata, can be found there but they're extremely rare in the hobby.

I believe the one in pic is haustrum. Both haustrum and maculata lay green eggs. It's not a cana as indicated by the link below. Canas lay pink eggs.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
