Sure do... i have them in my laptop thats loading right now just for you (i hardly turn it on)

the river they came out of was soooo clear and i actually snorkel in it took some amazing footage of a few species.

Caught 1 pair who was getting ready to breed (i made sure there were no eggs/babies/fry/juvies in the area from them) yes im very careful as i dont want to be responsible for making those babies food.. the 2nd pair was about 2 meter away by this HUGE rock that somehow made a tunnel and tons of fish/catfish were using as hide out breeding place. saw a hunting group of Chrenicichlas take over it to feed on what ever they could find some what amazing. the extra female was just searching for a mate and i figured mine could use her just in case....

anyways this river was shallow at one point than it was deep 6 meters off from where we park. the river was "LOW" due to summer, you can see where it was normally and the truth is that river seemed to be mean on the rainy season..

you cant really see it on them but they will have a red breast as they mature (note to reader) fish where stress when pics from us recently catching them!

They look awesome. Im just not sure I have an aquarium open for any more fish... I have a 20 gallon with my breeding pair of oblongums, and another 20 with a single Juvenile. I was planing on using the 20 for the fry of my pair though... Dang I really dont want to setup another aquatic tank. So much more work!
