Theo Modder says : Hoi Ben, this one looks more like a Royal Acara.
Check it out ?
You must have there some wonderful fishingspots though, with all these aquariumfish.

Ben Cantrell says : Hey Theo. I‘m not sure, I still think Black Acara. The head shape doesn‘t look right for Royal Acara. Do you have any good guides or websites for ID?

Theo Modder says : Hoi Ben,
I‘m not sure too.
Check for the black acara

Theo Modder says : Sorry, checked out too soon.
And for both chiclids
Note the round fin edges of dorsal and anal fins of the Black, and the pointed fins of the Royal.
The dots on the middle of the body and tail point out to the Royal chiclid, but I am not too sure about the snout.
But anyway an owesome species to catch in the wild !

Ben Cantrell says : Thanks Theo, I‘ll keep investigating. All these aquarium fish came from south Florida. They live in the same waters as the alligators!
