I agree with Joe that this has a lot of similarity with the R."holmiae" I
used to keep in the '70's which seems to now be considered a colour type of
R. igneus(R.holmiae aff Surinam.) The yellow margins on the caudal were
however very pronounced in the fish I kept. The picture on your website
doesn't seem to have these markings and I wonder therefore if it is the
same fish. It does look to be in the hartii/igneus/etc grouping.
Do you have any idea of its provenance? Does your supplier know where & when
he aquired the species. Is there is a long history attached to it or did you
come across it in a dealers tanks?
The attachment is a copy of a photo from an article published in the early
70's & shows the caudal clearly .Is this your fish?
