    I was give these as Rio Xingu but can find little info on them, do these look like them? I'm not sure but are both of these female? Sorry for the crappy pict. but my camera P1010031.JPG P1010023.JPG P1010022.JPG P1010021 (1).JPG P1010018.JPG P1010017.JPG P1010016.JPG is pretty basic.

    Thanks Yukondog. Again difficult to tell what they might be. Possibly two females. Are they A. cf. agassizii 'Xingu'? I cannot say.

    Thanks Ekona, I'm going to find a pair of agassizii and may try and put one with them and see what happens.

    Your photos are simply not good enough for an ID or sexing. Also note that the Rio Xingu Agassizii (A. cf. aggassizii BBCS Xingu) is almost certainly a different species from they typical A. agassizii from farther up the Amazon.
