 I  have  a  pair  of  the  fish  show  in  the  attached  picture.   It  is  about  1.25  inch.   Does  anyone  know  what  is  the  name  of  this  species?
 
 Thanks,
 Jai

 I  was  wondering  if  it  is  a  Severum  or  any  other  species.

 My  first  thought  when  I  saw  it  was  some  kind  of  Discus  kin.  
 It  could  be  Uaru  but  all  the  pics  I  have  seen  of  Uaru  are  of  a  grey  upper  body  with  black  lower  half.

 The  behaviour  of  the  fish  definitely  doesn't  appear  to  be  that  of  discus.
 
 Searching  through  the  web  I  found  this  picture  of  Uaru  cichlid...remains  to  be  seen  if  the  fish  I  have  is  the  same

 Juvenile  Uaru  amphicanthoides.  Don't  keep  them  in  planted  tanks.  Severums  and  Geophagus  are  good  companions  for  them.  They  would  need  a  large  tank  with  excellent  filteration.
 Trevor:  I  have  a  pair  but  I'm  not  sure  I  want  to  breed  them  right  now...too  many  fishes  at  home  now  Sad

 They  are  not  easily  available.  I  have  seen  them  in  the  300-500  range.
