You're really on about pb, corn. Can start pictorial here with your pb pic leading.

By the way, where are you up to with the collection? Well, it's 2 orinos, 3 azuls and one rather patchy mono now i have. Will take some pic later to show.

Hey bro, nice to hear from you. Wow, you have a neat collection there!! I have five ; one orino, one hybrid (tem/ocellaris cross maybe), two tems and one monoc. But my interest now is really odd-ball fish. Payara, ATF, Wolf, Gar. Sold off my Payara recently.

Yeah, got a few freshwater barracudas, some EEs, stingrays, aros with them. Thinking of adding a few African tiger fish. Those at CF are sooo small if not can try. Ha...

Yes, its a Cichla Temensis (Speckled Pavon) or Emperor Peacock Bass in local slang.

I bought mine for $40 while it was 6". From the pic, bro DC49's fish is about 4".
