It is some type of vieja, that eliminates a few hundred species for ya, I think it is a vieja maculicauda(blackbelt)

lol, I was there 2 weeks ago. I think I found interest in the same fish. Let me search my photos.

Well, maybe not the same fish, but same exhibit. I wish there was more species in that large tank.

My first guess was also a black belt but I have never seen one this nice so if that's what it is I am looking to find a good strain if not any more guesses on it? Dustin B

Alright got my answer from a person in Belgium. It is a vieja regani. I did some research and found more pics and its pretty much the exact same fish. From talking with them this is a great fish when with other fish of the same size but just like most central Americans it hates others of the same kind and just kills each other so I guess its try to find them grow them and egg crate them. If I find them I will let you know. Dustin B.

Regani are definitely cool, but Dustin you should see the colors on my 3.5" long Vieja Synspilum's.
