Aequidens metae

Postby sheila » Mon Mar 31, 2008 8:56 pm

Does anyone have any pics of adults of this species? My LFS has some larger ones in stock and although they are neat looking fish, I'm not %100 they are actually Aequidens metae
Thanks

The ones at the LFS are much darker, almost gray. I'll have to take a closer look. Can they go pretty dark if they aren't happy or if conditions aren't ideal? Or is there another acara that is really dark all over?

One of the features that I strongly recall from mine were their very unique coloring. Turquoise and orange. I've never seen a picture that seems to capture it but they were stunning!
$200 is a lot of money for such a plain brown fish. It must be really rare. I'll take 4!!

Nice pics, and thanks for the help. I really don't think that the fish at my lfs are metae at all after seeing your pics.
