I agree that it looks alike but I seriously doubt it that species Mike. There is hardly any trade from Surinam and French Guyana where those are found.MikeRad89 said:C. saramccensis
Extremely rare species - always wild caught and imported (albeit very, very rarely).
I'm very skeptical myself, but I can't find a species that even vaguely resembles this fish.DoubleDutch said:I agree that it looks alike but I seriously doubt it that species Mike. There is hardly any trade from Surinam and French Guyana where those are found.
Besides of that I don't think this LFS (looking at the gravel) would get them cause of the enormous price those would be.
I expect it to be a look alike from another part of South America (Brasil??)
Without the location they were caught they will be hardly / not to ID.
They are awesome btw.
Any link to the species you listed? Did a quick Google search and found nothing yet. Any idea of water requirements for them? I only have one established tank and several other empty/uncycled tanks at the moment.MikeRad89 said:Don't mention that you think they're saramaccensis! They'll charge you accordingly. Just buy the fish and figure out what they are afterwards.
Worst case scenario you have a beautiful morph of a not so common species; best case scenario you have a species that's RARELY brought into the US. If you can breed them people will pay.
I expect the mentioned corys to do 20 to 40 times this price. Another sign for me it aren't those. Beauties though, but I'd only get a group of 6 (+).itsayes said:Assorted cory cat $5.99
