sent you my email addy as well, hope you don't mind.

it is something I'm interested in. Not sure if I'd mix rams with the wild pair of discrossus filamentosus "orinoco" that I have, considering it though

I have collected rams in two locations in the lower Orinoco. I collected some large robust forms from a stream not far from Piacoa on the south of the Orinoco. The other location was north of the river close to Tucupita in shallow man made depressions that I think were for watering cattle. These were smaller but intensly colored fish in large schools that looked like corydoras swimming along the bottom.
