Sorry Shaun,
I'm not that hot on the different wild strains, they do look like wild rather than domestic fish, so I could well believe that they were Peruvian.

Hi Shaun, do they look much like the fish in this topic?

As these are "Peruvian" according to the LFS. Smile

Hi Shaun, they sure are stunners, shame I am no expert in wilds as only ever had one wild.
I'm sure we will get someone sooner or later that can help with identification, but they are real beauties!!! Very Happy
