    I bought 15 months ago 8 A. barlowi from Chris (Amazon Tropicals). They turn to be 4 pairs!! I believe they`re all the "blanco" (white) variant. A month ago I bought 20 (very small) A. barlowi directly from an importer. Yesterday, I observed them very carefully while displaying and I...

    ID strangest eunotus complex I´ve seen

    I bought this fish from an importer who decided to work in another job. In a tank there were 9 A. sp. "Rotpunkt", 5 A. agassizii, 1 A. panduro and the pictured fish. Taking in account the mixing of the tank, it could be a colombian o peruvian fish. First of all, the fish seems to be a...

    Excellent shape although the long trip

    I bought some days ago 4 pairs of A. barlowi and 10 juvies of Nannacara sp. "soururu" from Christian. They travel more than two weeks and, after that, they arrive home. All of them are alive and in very, very good shape. So, I thank him and his efforts in doing this possible!!!

    ID 2 -A. cf. eunotus "orange-tail" A75 again

    This pair (again, very prolific) was sold as "A. Huallaga" when they´re less than 1 inch (2 cm., actually). First I thought -because of the name- they could be A. atahualpa; but, once more, I think they are A. cf. eunotus "orange-tail" A75 (as the previous pair I showed some days ago). Pair...
