I never heard of this species, but it sounds to me like he is right up there close to the Bay Snook and Dovi. Well, atleast close to it. Wink If you can Sebastian, post a pic. I'd love to see it.

Well, barred Midas, amarillo, chancho, xiloaensis and even hogaboomorum look very similar in aquarium environment.
