RE: Fish ID

Thanks everyone! I'll wait a few months like you suggested and see if his
tail spades out or not. I'll let you guys know what happens.

I'm pretty sure that photo #5 is of a young male A. agassizii. A. pulchra
usually exhibit a lace like series of light colored spot, especially in the
upper lobe, in the tail fin. They don't show the white submarginal band
the tail that is characteristic of A. agassizii. Give him a few months and
if the tail doesn't start becoming spade shaped. BTW the photo in the
book labeled as "A. cf. pulchra" (S03805-4) is more like a young A.
than the Rio Madeira or Rio Branco forms of A. pulchra.
