Yes, an impressive list of fish.

FYI Diamente was the name under which A. alpahuayo (aka A. sp. Schwarzkinn/Black-chin) was imported. Diamente refers to the village of Diamente Azul on the upper Rio Nanay where it originated and first collected and imported by Julio Melgar in the 1980s. Interestingly the type locality listed in the scientific description ("a small nameless cocha (lake) with a small affluent quebrada (brook) approximately 29 km south of Iquitos" and the same type locality for A. cinnalabra) appears to be where local collectors introduced A. alpahuayo in the 1990s. This was because it was easier to get to.
Thank you so much for your time in this thread. This ve learned a lot and will now be looking for exporters dealing with scientific names only (if I can find any in Peru) mostly just wanted to say thank you for spending your valuable time with me.

Yeah sure, will get in touch if need be. From my experience, when you breed, the next generation will throw up a few winners so I'm not worried.

Looks selective bred but since you're sure it's wild, good on you. Nice fish, I get my fish from Orange so regardless of them having inferior genetics - they're precious to me.
