Yes, it's the return of "What's This Fish!". In March of 1999, we made a trip to the Amazon near Manaus, Brazil, and brought back a number of Apistos and other fish. Shown below are lots of in-tank photos at about 1 week after we brought them home. We have our ideas about the ID of these fish... what are yours?
(We also have other pictures of caught fish during the trip, plus collecting
locations and other goodies... in due time we're hoping to have them
into some sort of article/presenation on the main site). - Erik and Kathy
