You were told they were from Colombia. Once when I was in Peru I saw a tank full of Zebra Plecos (L46) that I was told were "from Peru". I guess you could compare them with similar looking iniridae-group species from Colombia and see if any are the same.

@Mike Wise it is true that they told me that it was from Colombia, it would be interesting if this fish were matched with fish from the iniridae-group species from Colombia, maybe there we can find the correct id.

My experience with uaupesi-like species is that a 100% positive ID is possible only if I know the river in which they were collected and/or I had enough preserved specimens to compare meristically with the scientific descriptions. If you look at the List on TomC's site (http://www.tomc.no/page.aspx?pageid=127) I see at least 8 different forms that might be your fish.

I was reviewing the ones in the group but unfortunately none of them looks alike and some don't have photos.
