Cichlosoma istlanum?

Post by slarsen6 » Thu May 10, 2012 1:58 pm

Recently collected a few cichlids as part of a research project and was hoping to confirm my identification. These were collected from the Balsas river basin. I concluded it was C. istlanum and would appreciate additional input. Thanks.
