I believe they are called red head tapajo. They get fairly large. What size tank do you have them in?

No problem. You're tank is small for the three of them at adult size. What size are they now?

I had one of these awhile ago. They are beautiful fish. If u have sand as your substrate, u can see them sifting through it.
