    Bought these as Nanacara Taenia - don't think so. But what are they?

    I know pictures are not good. Female seems to show some of the Taenia striping at times.

    I think they are Taenia. I have some of the Guyana form and they get the bars like your pictures #1 and #2. Picture #3 is probably a female.

    Thankyou Afra,

    I have seen pictures of the tania where the male kinda stays red horizontal stripes and goes dark around the head and had that form before - that is why I was concerned.

    He has two probable girls wth him so always seems to have show colours on......
