They are Azuls
Thank you for the clear explanation. I can definitely see the differences in the picture from the post. I have never had peacock bass before, so still learning. At least they won't get as big as a temensis... Which is fine by be. Again, thanks for the info!They are Azuls
On a Temensis you can see the three vertical bars, which are located in the middle between back and belly. On an Azul the bars are starting at the base of the dorsal fin. And as i see it the bars on young Azuls are not as pronounced (contrast) as on a young Temensis. On your fish (nice looking bass btw!) they appear as a kind of watermark.
See the last picture in this post to see the difference:
Something tells me that these red azuls will have unusual size and power. Tail fin looking like a temensis jet thruster..very muscular tigers blood azuls Awesome fish! Great bump update! Keep them up, very interesting and unusual color morph.www.monsterfishkeepers.com
