No, the fish I am talking about is the one just to the right of the one you posted. The one you posted is (IMO) an S. maculatus

You need to post clearer pics and be more specific what fish you are talking about. There is not wonder that almost all that replied thought you were questioning a different fish.

If people look at pics two and three, there is only one fish in those pics, so no confusion.

1 pic looks like my old natt, and then a different pic looks more like a spilo.
Thats what I was thinking also. I almost thought they were two different fish. I cant even be certain enough to give an opinion. Hopefully you get this resolved soon.

Good luck,

I'm keeping a hands off this fish until I receive samples to examine. Sorry guys. The best way to determine an approximate ID on your fish is knowing the exact locality. Then you can eliminate species that do not fit the description.

Hey frank, if I checked for those scutes that you mentioned before were characteristic along the ventral edge of S. Spilo would that help decide it's identity? (at least rule it out from being a ternetzi?)
