Are these green terrors or blue acaras? I can get better photos if needed
Those are Green Terrors, Andinoacara rivulatus. Note the orange band on the edge of the tail. Possible male left, female right.
Here we go again. Clearly an Acara!! Just kidding. 100% GT on this one.
I think its the face thats the same. To me the dorsal and face are identical.
Oi, stop it. I only scrolled up the top bit at first, lol.
Agreed, GT.... this question I have noticed has come up lately quite a bit.....
Ive been doing some more reading onthe subject. Besides the obvious similarities of faces and fins there seems to be another issue. From what ive read the blue acara may not be one fish, but a group of similar species that go by that name. Or here may be natural hybrids in nature. We like to blame humans for hybrids, but the coywolves in my backyard would disagree. It reminds me of confusion people have had with eartheaters.
Separate names with a comma.
