    Unreal. Like the perfect characid. Anyone know if they are still in the Hyphessobrycon taxonomic wastebin?

    I guess you are talking about either H. columbianus or H. ecudoriensis, two closely related species.

    No this is something different from the columbianus/ecuadoriensis group. Look back at Ekona's photos in the first post; it's more like a Loreto tetra or H. peruvianus.

    OK, stand corrected. That's the problem with common names. Well, AFAIK Hyphessobrycon/Hemmigrammus is still a dumping ground for many similar characids, sort of like what Cichlasoma/Aequidens was before Dr. Kullander started working on them.

    H. colombianus are not the fish identified in this thread. They are very different, but still very colorful and have interesting personalities when fully grown. I had a school that occupied the top layer of a 55 and they were a joy to keep.

    It will be more useful to speak Spanish when you, in the future, travel to South America to collect exciting fish.;)

    Well, Ian Fuller is talking at PDAS next monthly meeting I think.
    Hablo un poquito Espanol. En mi collegio, estudio Espanol para cinco anos. Tengo un GCSE en Espanol. Pero no estudio Espanol hasta veinti dos anos. Mi Espanol no es bueno.
    Donde estan las apistogrammas?

    (I have been studying Spanish for five years) ¡Bueno!

    (Where are the Apistogramma?)
    Si usted cree en el Perú, hay muchos apistogrammas en la zona alrededor de Iquitos y el drenaje de Rio Nanay.
    En el sur, en la zona de Puerto Maldonado no hay tantos ...

    Muy bueno, ha ha.
    My tenses are not great and I have a lot of vocabulary missing. I can often work things out when it is written though.
