I received a group of about 6 of these from a local hobbyist getting out of it, and he never really could confirm the type. Well I’ve only got this one left as I’ve shared the wealth and given some of others to friends, well once I added this one to my 75 gallon she really colored up. She is living with a school of juvenile angels, macmasteri redneck, hongsloi, and a few plecos and corys. Any insight is helpful, pictures of her colored up and pictures of one of the other fish before given away

Possibly, but my A. erythrura, collected west of the Rio Itonomas, never show lateral spots on Bars 2 & 4, but only Bar 3. Has anyone see this 3-spot pattern on A. erythrua? I would also expect to see the lateral band become noticeably wider toward the posterior. Many females are hard to ID.
