First photo try on my Fil­a­men­to­sus or Ampha. It does show red but that is iri­des­cence not actual body color, there is no reds brown col­or­ing on these fish. I will try to get some pics of them flar­ing.

Here are 3 more pics. Again the iri­descense shows red. Can’t get the fil­a­ment to show, I’ll have to come up with a lighter back­ground.

Will try to get pics in more nat­ural light.. I was using a flash­light to help, which brings out some un-​natural col­ore for pictures.

Iri­des­cence is a strange thing. My new paros(also in an ID thread) also show iri­des­cence not vis­i­ble with nor­mal light­ing but only with flash. In these it is blue, but the same idea.

As far as I know fil­a­men­to­sus has more solid red marks, not just iri­des­cence. Also, sp. Ampah has lit­tle solid colour. The fish in this topic look very sim­i­lar to your fish.

Thank you, so far the fish seem to be sp Ampah, just by lack of color as in most pics I’ve seen. They are still young but have nice fil­a­ments formed on the cau­dal and are putting on some weight now.

I would have expected to see more col­or­ing if they were fil­a­men­to­sus. Soon I will seper­ate the obivous pair I have.

With 6 fish there seems to be “sleeper” males so there is a pos­si­bly 2 more females but very hard to tell. If I take the dom­i­nant male out the ques­tion­able fish should change to more mature col­orations and finnage.

So these are my final pic­tures. The lighter back­ground has really helped. What are your thoughts on these fish.. I’m lean­ing towards spec Ampah
The pic­tures are for males and female and I believe they “show” well.

In a way if they are spec Ampah, we have a prob­lem to a lesser degree as we have with “Dess­neri” in that the 2 species of fil­a­men­to­sus and Ampah are NOT dis­tin­guished by the deal­ers.
