    Recognise these Matt?

    These were taken yesterday. They’ve settled in nicely, dunc bought 10 Cardinals to go with them (though he reckons he’s probably gonna buy a few more). Really coloured up too.

    They’re not scaredy-cats like dunc’s daemon, they’re always at the top of the tank waiting to be fed when you go near them!

    Indeed, they are gorgeous creatures /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” /> Tried to get a picture of him but too much reflection off the glass, will have to give it a bash when it’s dark.

    Btw – wondering if these might be Geophagus abalios (link to example pic here)?

    Nice pics! Yes Tom and I thought they might be G. abalios, or possibly G. dicrozoster. Bloody lovely things, whichever they are. I miss them but glad they’re in good hands!! Show us a pic of the set-up!

    Abalios is a possibility, dicrozoster isnt.
    So hard to ID these creatures as you all know!

    They look in top health

    Alright Neal!

    Dicrozoster

    Thats just my thoughts, you can never be 100% sure without knowing exactly where they were caught

    No black marking just infront of the gills, abalios have large heads, dicrozoster are more streamlined

    thats one of the kids favourite words !! no more above the anal fin from memory the 2 stress bars meet about half way down the body and form a Y – its the next set of stress bars after the central spot i think but its very visable (just not on the photos as the fish there are very relaxed) when there a little stressed

    Sounds like dicrozoster definitely isn’t a possibility for your fish then Dunc. I can’t recall ever seeing that kind of marking when I had them…
