A before/ after photo of a C. bocourti I'm growing on, but presented in a slightly different way. 8)

That upper left photo is the richest, most glorious image of C. bocourti that I have ever seen. Fantastic photo Lee!

Cheers Mark,

The fish has developed beautifully, especially when displaying this dominant colour form, a real treat to see each day! :D

Jaw dropping.

Both - the fish & the photograph. I like exC. pearsei, but pattern of a good quality exC. bocourti is even nicer in my eyes.

Have you got a partner for this fish?

The others from your list are marvelous as well. The photo of exC. salvini female above her offspring with BTN in the background could well be used as a riddle, whether it's an underwater pic, or not!
Cheers

It's ironic when aquarium populations are more common to see than in their own eco systems. :? It's a real shame to hear the problems affecting mexico and Central American river systems, I hope in some cases the damage can be reversible :(

Unfortunatley the fish is a single specimen, the market for bocourti in the UK isn't particularly popular, shame as they are beautiful fish with good personality.

Thank you for the compliment, I also like the salvini photo you mentioned, one of my favourite photos! 8)

hi there Lee.....that Bocourti is amazing!!!!
I am starting to understand the terms of interspecies, etc....but is there also more than one
type of Bocourti??? Do they come from different lakes????
Anyway, how big is that fish in the photo?
(On a different note,.....as my Melenurus/Synspilum are getting larger, I can see the
resemblance and understand why they were reclassified.....So now they are all Melenurus and we
distinguish them by locality....I hope this is correct).....Thanks for your support!!.....Ivan

Lee, fantastic photos as usual. They really make me kick myself at turning down a chance at a group of these a few years back. Fantastic looking fish.
