    Algodon II is an old 'garbage can' name that included at least 3 species often thrown together by exporters. Your fish appear to be A. cf. ortegai (Pebas), aka the paratype form of A. ortegai (a genetically completely different species; the describers messed up!) and formerly known as A. sp. Pebas.

    Thank you Mike
    I actually looked at some past replies you have posted and saw that you said argodon II is junk. I figured if anyone would know you would. Thank You!
    I recently had them spawn too and they are wigglers as of tonight so I'm pretty excited!
