PostSubject: Rio Ucayali Pics   Sat Mar 20, 2010 12:22 pm

Just thought I pop up a picture of one my my Rio's I caught out today


These little fellows are groing up fast, except for the one with the large white spots (see my ID thread), he seems
to have grown either much slower than the others, or not at all!
Also, I found that it wasn't Tim killed by the Shark, it was infact my younger one Gary. I netted him out and had a good look at him the other day, and he growing pretty big, I'd say he's nearing the 10cm mark, or just over it!

Will try get more pics soon, I'd probably update this thread as I go Smile

Thankyou! I'm definatly going to post some up after my new plants arrive! Very Happy

And yes! There's Exeter Aquatics (featured on PFK website), Theres a Bow Aquatics in a garden a little way out near where I live, a few other petstore places like 4pets (a bit pricey but often stock a lot of cichlids), The Ark (lovely place, the guy in there is awesome!) P@H (they're 'okay' enough). Also, a little way out theres a Maidenhead Aquatics in a place called Jacks patch out a Teignmouth, thats worth a visit just to dribble over the display tanks! That said, Bow is also worth that, as they have a few marine display tanks and a frigging huuuge tank behind the counter! They also stock a few plecs, but are a bit pricy. I like to get my plants in there for three reasons:
1 snail free
2 Cheap but good
3 One of the guys always gives me extra for free ;D
But please do not go to Exeter Pet and Garden, the woman in there is a complete -rudeword-, and their tanks are always poorly maintained :P

Lol, I love my city! Very Happy

Top foto Spreebok , but looking at the fish now it has relaxed down a bit I'm thinking it's another
A. Hopolgenys and not A.Rio Ucayali( which I think we have determined to be the "orange spot") don't you
just love trying to I.D these fish Laughing

High Spreebok ,see if you can post some recent pics of what we "think " we have confirmed to be Lo59 and then a recent
pic of this guy, you should have a good comparison this way and possibly get some "conflicting" (Laughing) advice as to what he is. Perseverence mate -should get you a true I.D.

Okay, I've set up the good camera next to the tank, and will keep an eye out for them! Very Happy
I'll try get all three, plus Tim, as he was ID'd as a Rio too!

( Apologies for the triple post ^^; )

Hey Kurosaki, any chance you can show me a picture of these A. Hopolgenys, plus a common name is you can. I fail at the Latin names, and when I google it I get White Seam and Snowflake BN's :P
Also, I've posted the recent photo's above, here's a few from the ID from when we ID'd them:

Small Spotted Ones (Well, I dunno which is which, but they look exactly the same, save for a few bristle diffrences)





Large Spotted One:




The game continues! xD

High Spreebok, A.Hoplogenys is the common name (real name), I've also had Mark the owner of Aggies try to tell me that the pepps
we get in OZ are Hoplogenys--"wrong".
This is what I was getting at with recent pix:
Large spotted fellow.

First of the 2 fish that were assesed as A.Hoplogenys

(Well, I dunno which is which, but they look exactly the same, save for a few bristle diffrences)
Now this is the closest pic I can find of the Rio Ucacyali /O-spot we get in OZ

Note the lack of bold white spots and the spots leaning towards an orange colour.
I can definately see a difference between Hoplogeys and Rio Ucayali-- what do you think Spreebok Question

Oh yeah another thing -- that slate cave setup scratch is it siliconed together? if it's not then I'd get on to that ,
if those slate pieces come crashing down, ooohhh I'd hate to imagine the outcome.

Cave is indeed siliconed, spent a whole evening turning the air blue when it kept falling over during curing lol!

Oh, I can deffo see the difference now! Even my eldest one (over a year old, about 7cm) still has very bright and defined spots. Plus the general shape is wrong as well, mine have more common BN shaped bodies and heads!
Is there any chance you can point to me an accurate refrence page for A.Hoplogenys, just so I can visually confirm with myself? Smile

Aaah! So we're going back to L059 again? I can see the resemblence, I guess we'll just have to wait for these guys to grow up before we can get a clearer picture! Cheers for your help Kurosaki! cheers
