Those fish are my geophagus jurupari, beauties none the less.

I have been corrected, i was misinformed that these were geophagus steindachneri when i purchased them. I still love them and will keep them in this tank...for now.

Actually, I believe they are Satanoperca Leucosticta as the real geophagus jurupari does not have any spots or stripes and is very rare in the aquarium trade (looks like yours have striped faces). Many people still sell any type of eartheater as jurupari and it's not correct.
Can you get any better pictures of them??

i'll try tomorrow, they're quite flustered from the move.

But after looking at pictures and comparing the two species these are most certainly Satanoperca Leucosticta, the have stripes on their faces, a horizontal stripe running the length of them in the right light and vertical stripes in the right lighting as well. That is most certainly what these are, I'll still upload more pictures tomorrow when they're a bit more settled.

I thought so... but it was tough to tell with just that one little pic... beautiful fish though! I love em...

I couldn't sleep last night so I decided to start cycling my old planted 20 gallon dwarf cichlid breeding tank

The log is hollow but yet, it is an awkward shape so i took the best picture to show it hollow as i could

after it cycles this will most likely be filled with some Apistogramma species, hopefully Apistogramma Inca if i can find them somewhere.

I'm heading off to my LFS right now after testing the water parameters and everything in the 55, 75 and nano reef is within range. Lets see what i can find :ssuprised:

Back from the store! i had only a little over $100 to spend so this is what i picked up.


I added 4.5 lbs. of live rock and a small star polyp frag, as well as getting a new light fixture, much more powerful than my old one so i could properly grow corals.

And a common pleco for my 55gallon, i plan on having a much larger freshwater tanks for arowanas soon so i might as well put this guy to some good use before i set up his new home =)
