Thank you so much for your time in this thread. This ve learned a lot and will now be looking for exporters dealing with scientific names only (if I can find any in Peru) mostly just wanted to say thank you for spending your valuable time with me.Yes, an impressive list of fish.
FYI Diamente was the name under which A. alpahuayo (aka A. sp. Schwarzkinn/Black-chin) was imported. Diamente refers to the village of Diamente Azul on the upper Rio Nanay where it originated and first collected and imported by Julio Melgar in the 1980s. Interestingly the type locality listed in the scientific description ("a small nameless cocha (lake) with a small affluent quebrada (brook) approximately 29 km south of Iquitos" and the same type locality for A. cinnalabra) appears to be where local collectors introduced A. alpahuayo in the 1990s. This was because it was easier to get to.
Sadly, I doubt that you will find any. If you're not sure of the species, the best bet is to see if you can get photos. I personally prefer to buy species that I can see. I know that this isn't alway (almost never) possible.... will now be looking for exporters dealing with scientific names only ...
Not bashing fish by any means I’m all over wilds I just have a guy that helps me and only recommends when it’s time. Got sure luckyLooks selective bred but since you're sure it's wild, good on you. Nice fish, I get my fish from Orange so regardless of them having inferior genetics - they're precious to me.
