Pete on monster fish keepers has gorgeous tapajos. Think he only sells in 6 or 12 though.

They can be a bit pushy, but overall are pretty relaxed. I just don't like the nuchal hump as adults, part of the reason I'm selling my 2
Is it just the male that gets the hump or both.

To my knowledge, just the males, although females can develop a smaller one. Either way, I have never liked nuchal humps on any fish lol

Skip the balzani and go for satanoperca. Much cooler looking fish IMO!

Plus they do better with higher temps, the gymnos will still prefer lesser temps

Was at the lfs today and they can order the satanoperca's from a local breeder. So unless any one has any other suggestions Ill be getting these at the end of the month.
