Geophagus id please.

Post by Tom Williams » Wed Dec 19, 2007 4:04 am

Any ideas what these are, i bought them as labelled wild geophagus Surinamensis but i know that this is unlikley and also they have the black cheek stripe. Shope in the UK label things really badly. I think they are lovely but want to put a name to them.

Thanks

This fish is Geophgaus dicrozoster, sometimes you also can find Geophgaus abalios with them
