Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      I have 3 geophagus Surinamesis and 3 geophagus jurupari... Very colorful fish when they get bigger... My avatar is a full grown geo Surinamesis with lots of color also not that hard to take care of.

      I'm going to have to disagree. If they are coming from a tank labeled as assorted SA they are not going to be surinamensis. They are a little young but most likely G. altifrons. True surinamensis are very rare in the hobby. This group of Geos is labeled as the Surinamensis complex which includes altifrons, abalios, and a whole bunch of others. When they get a couple of inches bigger I can give you a positive ID, young Geos tend not to display adult morphological characteristics.

      FYI ckcdrummer at a quick glance I believe yours G. abalios....hard to tell from small photo

      Idk if I'm seeing things, but if you pause the video at 30 sec, it looks like there is a y bar present? Possibly Dicrozoster?

      Well all I know is they look exactly like the ones I have and I have Surinamesis. And Surinamesis are the most common in my area, I see them all the time.
