Nosferatu labridens & bartoni

I want to share with you my most recent trip, this time I decided to go to La Laguna de la Media Luna, I was looking for Nosferatus labridens & bartoni and I wanted check the status of these populations and my objective was met in full, the species that we could found were:

Nosferatu bartoni

Nosferatu labridens

Cichlasoma carpintis

And most likely some hybrid

Thanks for sharing, I certainly enjoyed looking at those photos.

By the way, is it only me or H. carpintis does not do that well in Media Luna? In most pictures they look rather skinny and with a bit popped out eyes.
Cheers

Well, I have finished editing the video and think it will be good enough, the truth is that the camera does not give much to get good videos, so I had to make do with what there is, I hope you like it.

Last time I visited Media Luna, the vegetation was nearly completely absent in the channels and the water was no longer crystal clear. Seems the locals turned it into a large swimming park. What is the current situation?
Thanks,
Don

Unfortunately the situation is quite the same, but labridens and bartoni steel fight to sobrevive at this place

Thanks much for the update. Such a pity... I remember my first visit there in mid 1980's and how wonderful and beautiful it used to be with all of the Nymphaea and crystal clear water! Glad to hear that bartoni and labridens are hanging in there.
Best,
Don
