Last October Brian Perkins, Fritz, and myself took a trip to a small river off of the Amazon a few hours from Iquitos, Peru. I have finally finished editing the pictures from that trip and thought I'd share some. I'm sure a lot of you have seen these on facebook (there are some that aren't on fb as well), but for those that haven't, enjoy! 

 

PS I looked but couldn't find a SANFA.org, I hope you don't mind me posting here!

#17 looks close enough to a darter, so maybe we won't boot you out.  Amazing shots.  Wide-bodied catfish are especially tricky but you really captured their image.  Is the jaw on that deep-bodied characin (Moenkhausia maybe? ) - really shaped like that (pointed) or is that an injury?  Love the blue tetra - any idea what species?

Yup it is Characidium.  There are both S. Amer and African "Characoid" families that have copied the darter body plan and lifestyle.  Some of them even climb waterfalls, like gobies.
