Geophagus species and type help?

    These were sold to me as geophagus serinimensis, but I'm not too trusting of any fish stores these days... Any help/thoughts would be appreciated!! :)

    A lot of Geophagus are sold as surinamensis, but most of them aren't. It will only be surinamensis if it was caught in Surinam or French Guyana. If it was captive bred it probably isn't surinamensis.

    It isn't altifrons.
