I have an idea of what they are but they were sold to me as something else and I recently spoke to someone who told me that they should be what they were sold as, but I truly don't think they are. I had this feeling when I first saw them and bought some anyway, just in case I might be wrong. So, what do you think they are? Input from the Geophagus/Gymnogeophagus gurus would be much appreciated. Smallest are 1", largest just about 1.5".
In the tank they are much plainer than this. An overall dull yellow with some faint dull brown barring, spot on the body and bar running from the eye to the mouth. Most color they have is the blue under the eye.
Thant is exactly what I was thinking. They were sold to me as "Gymno. sp Catalan". I was quite sure they were Thorichthys x Cryptoheros when I first saw them but I purchased them anyway. I later had a talk with someone who says he knew the person who supplied these fish to the shop where I bought them and he said they should be F1 Gymno. "sp. Catalan" as he had obtained some from the same person, but not through the shop. This person's fish were indeed sp. Catalan. My fish are most certainly not. I figure they were not supplied by the same person or they may have been mixed up at the shop.
