Really? I was under the impression that G. megasema
had a much larger spot than what G. sp. "Tapajos II" exhibits.
About 6 years ago I imported a group of wild caught Tapajos Red Heads. Out of 8 fish, 2 were different and ended up being Tapajos II. They looked nothing like the pictures of megasema below.
Now compared to "Tapajos II"
Hmmm... this is the only pic of Tapajos II I can find. Sadly, I never took any pictures of mine.
In addition, megasema comes from the Rio Guapore river basin which is about 1000 miles from where Tapajos II is collected.
$200 is a lot of money for such a plain brown fish. It must be really rare. I'll take 4!!
