I have a few of these fish. They where in a batch of C. ornatus but to me they didn't look right. I thaught Ornatus had more dashes then dots, as this fish clearly shows.
Since they all appeared in good health, long barbs, and active I bought the bunch..
They just made it out of quarantine ( 3 weeks ) and are taking kindly to a 4 foot tank to romp around in.

I would say aggasazii also, but I am away this weekend and replying to this on the laptop so I will check my library when I get home.

C. ambiacus, this along with C. agassiziii is one of those that the trade keep calling C. punctatus. C. agassizii has the first three dorsal rays black from base to tip.
