I know a number of fishboxers are keeping this fish so I thought you all might enjoy this article released/updated today ... beautiful little fish.

Is it bad that I actually have this article in the AFM issue it was originally released in?  Embarassed 

Wayne is a great guy, and his articles in that series are hilarious but still with great info. Anyone into SA cichlids should hunt down the appropriate one for their cichlids.  Spot On 

They are sometimes difficult to find online though, so amazing catch Donna!!

Awww...really? No of course that is not bad but surprising as the article showed the citation as today (8/1/14) and updated today. I thought it was a new article or had new information for you guys Sad

Oh, it's updated with the new names and such ... back when it first came out, sp. bucklekopf and sp. orangeflossen hadn't been described yet. So it's neat seeing the updated version. Plus the naming stuff at the end is new.

But the original article came out in the early 90's ... '91 I think. He covered every genus of SA cichlids during the series, which ran from 90-96-ish or so.

Still, as I said, very hard to find the online versions of it. Mine magazines are in storage atm, so it's nice to know I don't have to go and try to dig them out now for these guys, so it's still a great find!!!  Spot On

Yours are definitely L. araguaiae Chiisai ... L. curviceps don't have that downward turn of the lateral line onto the gill plate the way L. araguaiae do. It's the stand out diagnostic for the species.

Btw anyone found any pics of the acara as fry? I have been searching and searching and it would seem i can find good pictures of fry from any other kind of fish. Just wondering if i should be taking pictures for others.
