Dont really see a humeral spot or typical traits... but it looks like it could use extra food and some fattening up, maybe the lack of colors are from its previous diet.

Yeah its last owner definitely didnt pay much attention to it. It is very skittish and doesnt finger chase. Hopefully it comes around soon

Pellets if it will accept them, and fatty fillets like salmon would help. Occasional beef heart wouldnt hurt either.

If you dont want to buy a salmon fillet, you could try asking a restaurant or grocery that has it to save the trimming scraps.

The eye coloring / tail band is whats confusing to me... I have seen several pics of S spilopleura that look similar.

I would fatten it up, and post some pics when things become more clear.

a little late in the game -- but it is most likely a Serrasalmus eigenmanni
