    This guy came in with a batch of tetras from Colombia. He's grown up a bit in the last few months and while he doesn't show any color, he's got markings on his face and caudal fin and distinct fin features that should hopefully help identify it. Any help is appreciated.

    He has deep black bands from his eyes to his chin that are the width of his eye. A lateral line is present from the base of the caudal fin to his eye. In certain moods, vertical bands are present starting from the base of the dorsal fin and going to the lateral line. The caudal is lyrate and the dorsal has extended rays 2-4 approximately.
