I don't see anything to suggest the fish is a hybrid.

Just to point out that, synspilus is now a junior synonym of melanurus, so the latter is used to describe these fish now. :)

Cheers,

Lee.

Most synspila (now known as melanures) got some spotteds when they are young.. but some variants can hold these spotteds like those from the río sarstun and those from the rio chiapas.
I have kept a serval variants of them and i must say that not all these fish got much spotted as adults.. but your fish are synspila/melanures.
If i'm right there are some pictures of spotted synspila from my hand on the cichlidroom catelog. 8)

sorry for my english :)

Thank you for the clear up doubts. I have never seen live adults. Photos that I found on the net, have gained a bit of confusion and doubt whether it certainly is a form of "blue spotted." My fish along with the increase seemed too dark and their heads are too purple. In addition, I was surprised that only one individual had a characteristic shiny shells, I thought how it will be more of these points will come and unfortunately this does not happen.
Now I know more.

now the same fish

If possible I would like to find out which areas are found in fish that look like mine?

Why do most fish do not have a characteristic shiny points? They are from a single spawning

PS. Lee your aquariums are for many a model to create a biotope tank with cichlids from CA.

Hi

They seem similar to the spotted synspilum from Belize.

how to verify?
Is there any way to identify precise location of what may come?
I understand that distinguishes them color - is a schema, a description of what color is characterized by the region?

further, the brightest of all
