    Yeap, it's A. pertensis(or A. sp. pertensis, :biggrin: ). And it's magnificent fish!

    It's the 'real McCoy'! The type form of A. pertensis - not the more commonly seen populations of A. cf. pertensis.

    I would, but Brazil wouldn't like it ... and I'm not fond of Brazilian jails! Just ask Horst Linke and Heiko Bleher :eek: (among others).

    Not A. resticulosa; A. borellii, but can't say if it is male or female - too young/small.
