Re: Help ID Beautiful Little Dwarf Pikes

I guess C. nothophthalmus as they come from Brazil but could also be C. sp. aff. notophthalmus "Orinoco", the male is too young to see the extensions of the dorsal fin, but the red in the female dorsal is quite caracteristic. OK, but the clearly show a caudal spot and as far as I am aware one of th...

Sorry, not C. notophthalmus. Caudal spot and lack of extensions on the front of the dorsal make them a very colourful population of C. regani

Re: A. nijsseni or panduro

Looking at the males, one of the biggest difference is the dorsal fin. With A. nijsseni the upper edge of the dorsal is flat, with A. panduro the front part of the fin will show extensions on the individual rays.

Re: Heros severus... m or f ??

One way to determine sex is the red color on the side. On females it does not go higher than middle of the fish, while on males it can reach up to the the lateral line. Based on this I'd say you have a male. Also males in adulthood get spots on the cheeks, but far less than other Heros. David Spott...

Re: Question...

As E. canarensis is a fresh water fish and E. maculatus is normally looked upon as a brackish water fish then you have 2 species here with very different water type requirements so I wouldn't even consider mixing them.

Re: Danakilia dinicolai, a new species from Eritrea.

Thanks Philippe. What a beautiful and interesting fish. I really hope some of these made it back alive......... The male does have a stunning nuchal hump!!

Now you see that is what I always thought but Kullander (2003) placed P. dumerilli as a junior synonym of P. scalare and I haven't seen this placement challenged anywhere?
