]Hello,

In rio corso, you don't find T. helleri common varieties but more a sp. rio corso (that's what I read and I can check in the rio). The helleri look like this :
In rio chacamax

And that's the tory you find in corso :

Pictures from fish catched in 2011 by a friend of mine (Philippe). I have the chance to see the fish in the rio in 2012.

Nice :) thnx for the Photo's!
When u are at the Rio Corzo don't forget the non cichlids and plants ;) also curious for those :)

Maybe when u have bred some of those Thorichthys i can get some ;) Absolutely sure that some other dutch people are interested ;) :D (for me not at the moment, it's already crowded)

Astyanax is aeneus. You can find some catfish, characids and poecilids too.

For details I must looking for my notes but I remember Brycon guatemalensis, Heterandria bimaculata, Belonesox belizanus, Bramocharax sp., Dorosoma anale and Batrachoides goldmanni and I forgot for cichlids Theraps irregularis. And the aliens Ctenopharyngodon idella, Oreochromis niloticus(?), Pterygoplichthys pardalis. For plants: Eleocharis, Ludwigia, Najas, Myriophyllum and Pontederia. Snails: Pachychilus indiorum and Pomacea flagellata.
Crustacea: Macrobrachium and Pseudothelphusa.

These could be only one specie and there is Xiphophorus helleri/alvarezi.
Plants are not common in this type of river. Usually you can find more in lagunas (beautiful in selva lacandona).
