A journey to the amazon jungle turns up some beutiful and rare fish. follow along as the author takes you with him knee deep in the Rio Negro.
Almost there!!! The bank, close too where the village is.
One of the many uninvited guests.
Some of the inhabitants werent so pretty as the fish i hoped to catch…
Habitat photo. Note the splash tetra in the photo
A more precise location of where i fished
The net i used. The frame is PVC and the mesh is normal window screen.
My first fish collected at this site, Copella sp.!!!
Chocolate cichlid, hypselecara coryphaienoides juvinile. This specimen, though only 2 1/2 inches long was by far the largest specimen collected.
Finally after catching only tiny juvie chocolate cichlids i caught one that i was able to properly ID as H. coryphainoides
Satanoperca jurupari recently collected from the wild.
What a surprize! this was on my whish list for a while before a single male apeared in my nets!!! I caught it shoaling along with some acarichthys.
