Video of Cichlasoma Ornatum

Rumor has it that someone in our club has a group of these and is trying to BAP them

I highly doubt anyone has 'Cichlasoma' ornatum. Given where all the exports came from they have to be 'Cichlasoma' gephyrum which is a very similar species that is just as pretty. 'C'. ornatum is found in Southern Colombia and Northern Ecuador. The exports are coming from drainages in the Central and Northern parts of Colombia.

Had to give my 'C.' gephyrum to my dad as I'm moving. Hopefully he can get them to spawn. They should be approaching the right size. They are beautiful fish, I might have to take them back at some point.

Wishing our member success. They've been coming in in small numbers recently. It would be nice to be first. Glad now that I didn't spring for six wild caught myself. These are in a much better situation.
