Don I love your pics and your fish - please enter some of these in the non-piranha POTM comp


also I get slightly differant scientific names as you have


Myleus gurupyensis


Myleus schomburgkii - Black-barred meyleus

and I have no clue as the the last species.

I'm not saying that I'm right and you are wrong here, as I am most likely wrong, but I thought I would share what I have these down as, I also have Myleus rubripinnis rubripinnis down as being a red hook, but not with these orange spots, more like in this pic



also I am a big fan of silver dollers and you seem to have quite a collection, I would really appriciate it if you could post about them in the non-piranha forum

Thanks for the comments...

Innes, I'm barely starting to get interested in Myleus species, so you might be correct. I purchased those three 6" specimens as Myleus rubripinnis rubripinnis (probably because of the red hooked anal fin) but there seems to be other subspecies of rubripinnis out there and their look varies greatly. Some with brilliant orange blotching (If you remember fishpost.com imported some of those a few months ago) and I've seen pics of some with black spots also.

As far as schomburki vs schomburgkii, I'm sure you know what I meant. I just misspelled it.
I was trying to show that there are two different variants from two different locales. Thanks for correcting me though...


As for the unidentified species... Brian thinks that it might be Myleus pacu.

well whatever they are I really want some, please keep me informed as to what you find out about these species as I have never been able to find too much about them - not that I looked in great deal, but I did look a bit.
