    My lfs has some of these, they aren’t labeled as they were given them by their distributor that went out of business. They have a bit of green along the lateral line and only pick on each other. They don’t even acknowledge the her fish in the tank.

    Very close…I think the fish in the picture is not as tall as that one. Discherodontus halei is one I found while researching which I have not confirmed.

    I actually posted this same ID on another forum but no confirmed answer.

    Hmm thought I had a pic of D. halei but nope, just a habitat shot. The image by JJ on Fishbase is inconclusive, too.

    Andy, shouldn’t H. lobatus have dark spots on the upper part of the body?

    If I may be so bold as to show one of my pics of D.halei , there are more pics on the thread Discherodontus halei 2 !

    Matt I dunno about the spots on H.lobatus , I’m not certain but reasonably convinced Sharkdudes fish is a Henicorhynchus lobatus ?

    I think I better go back and get better pictures. I took that one with my phone. Next time I’ll be sure to use my camera. I’m not entirely convinced of th H.lobatus because of its mouth, it doesn’t seem as pointy as my fish.

    If you get a close look at your fish I wouldn’t mind betting it has an underslung mouth ?

    Could perhaps do with another pic or two

    Of the Henicorhynchus’s I think yours seems closest to Lobatus ,Caudimaculatus is similar but has a black blotch on the caudal base !

    If yours is indeed H.lobatus it apparently attains a size of 10 cms !

    Whilst on the subject of Henicorhynchus ,I’d love to find a nice group of H.lineatus

    Here are some better pics. You where right Andy the do have under slung mouths. They also have faint spots in the middle of their body and at the caudle. The spots almost disappeared once i started taking pics howver.

    Hi Matt, personally I’d rule out Siamensis as it looks too chunky ?
