PredatorPiqued PredatorPiqued your fish absolutely is not an armatus. I see a beat up, unusual looking tatauaia. Pics aren't the best though, I'd like to see more.

These are some more pictures I'm not sure what it is your looking for. Also when you say "unusual" what's unusual? As for the tail fin, he was involved in a scuffle when I dropped 1 feeder in and 3 fish collided and he was grabbed.

It's 100% tatauaia.

It just looked unusual, which was an artifact of the pictures. Idk exactly how to describe it. I'm also a big German shepherd fan, and a bit of a snob about bloodlines. When I see a German shepherd that's from trash lines or even sometimes a good dog that's just photographed at an odd angle, it looks unusual.

Kinda the same thing at play here. Your initial pics were all at odd angles, and when combined with the bump on its nose, it looked unusual.

I appreciate your time anyways and informing what you can. What ever species he is I love em, I'll take the tat lol. I figured his nose was fine considering when I got him it's always looked like that slightly bumped out.

Could you guys give me the key identifications your looking for that determines the species of payara though? I'm curious what it is your looking at

Fish has the gold tint to it's body that I recall seeing on the tats that I've kept but never on any of my armatus.
