Collected some near the Peru/Ecuador border in 2012, but didn't bring any of them home. They are much like other populations found all over South America. The species is discussed in many books.

Do you have any links handy? I already have them, they seem to be doing well, color has changed drastically since placing them in my tank. Quite social, far more curious than apistos I've kept. More like a ram.
