    Lovely fish mate, where did you get them?

    Which Heros sp. is it mate? Notatus? Papaterra appear to be the real deal; v. cool!

    Good question Mr Ford! It was sold as H. notatus (though I hasten to add the price tag didn’t quite match..

    Are you sure those are pappaterra? I do not recall this species having cheek spots. Do you have a country of export?

    What other species do you think it could be retro? Could this be the “real” jurupari?

    I’ll be honest – I have what I believe to be a true pappaterra in my daemon tank. Just the one, Matt found him accidentally I think then I inherited. He’s 10″ TL now so obviously mature, with the broad black stripe on his flank… but he has no cheek spots at all. It’s literally just a matte gill plate. He’s also a very different colour to the other Satanoperca fishes in the tank, and different again to the juveniles I’ve photographed here.

    There’s so little information about the Satanoperca fishes.

    Unfortunately I don’t have any info on where they were from, I just know they were ordered in as jurupari but from what I “know” about jurus, they don’t have the black band even when stressed?

    I can probably find out though, I’ll send an e-mail over now

    Oh, and, are the Heros just your standard Sevs? The colours on them outside of the heavily tannin-stained water are much more red than the photographs.

    Thinking back the leucosticta I gave you had the same patterning when they were small or stressed i.e. those dark markings in the dorsal half of the body…

    Ps – and dood I think jurupari doesn’t have cheek spots either…

    Oooh it’s all fascinating. Matt do you have any journals we could use for reference?

    I think you’re right btw:


    (Taken from westerncichlids.com.au)

    That’s S. leucosticta. I think maybe the juvis I have are leucosticta, but the big one I have in my daemon tank is actually S. pappaterra?

    Can you get some pics of the big boy mate?

    Knowing the country of origin would help greatly in identification. I have a sneaky feeling both your fish are from Guyana.

    Mind if I email your pics to people who might know?

    Nah mate I’d be delighted for you to do that, thanks.

    Just had a word with Michael, he’s gonna try and get in touch with his suppliers, see if they’ll let him know where they were collected.
