Default Rio Nanay sold as WC Suriname AGAIN!

Hi Folks,

It was brought to my attention recently AGAIN that there have been some imports of WC Rio Nanay being sold as WC Suriname. I just saw some of these recent imports a moment ago. I've kept both strains for many years. As far as I'm concerned, I'm 100% sure the recent imported so called WC Suriname are merely Rio Nanay. They are NOT Suriname at all.

This is not the first time such mislabelling of the fish has been done (see below threads). The LFS that carries these WC Rio Nanay simply said that they are labelling it according to what the importer has told them. Regardless, I just hope that hobbyists are aware of what they're buying.

Hi Bro,

Thanks for your WARNING!!

Anyway, those interested looking for Suriname. Few weeks ago, I saw at AquaOne, a full tank of juv. F(1.5" to 2" size) F1 Suriname.

These are certainly 100% the real SURINAME strain, you can check it out yourself.

Hi bros, maybe this will help. http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/sh...light=suriname

There are many old threads posted by me previously with pics etc for reference.

I'm not sure about the pricing for these Rio Nanay that were sold as Suriname. But I would presume there is a premium on Suriname for the importer to label as such.

Honestly, as long as buyer is happy with their purchase then it doesn't matter whether it is Suriname or Rio Nanay. The issue is buyer needs to know what they're buying to begin with.

This thread contains some old pics of my Rio Nanay in the past. http://www.arofanatics.com/forums/sh...ht=wild+angels

In the past, these Rio Nanay were sold as Spotted Peruvian or Peruvian Altum. They usually come into our market during the Altum season, which is now.

Some pics of juvenile Suriname from an old thread. Blue speckles and yellow spotting are obvious even when fish is young (about one inch body length). This is something you won't see in Rio Nanay.

Hi bro,

I also just saw it today too in the west area.

Confirmed, this is not Surname!!! because it's body is just plain .....without blue sparkling below gill area and yellow spots on its body.

Body Shape kind of similar to. Suriname.
