Would probably need a better shot of their forehead to be sure, but they look like the fish called 'peruvian altum' or 'peruvian scalare.' Not a true altum, still cool fish. Thought to be a new species but that is quite a hot debate.

The forehead doesn't quite look like a true altum to me but that could be the angle and the bands deffinately don't look wide enough for the true altum.

amazing flank color ... but I like my wild angels to have those red eyes that most wild scalare have ... decent size though. Am sure they'd be more in a LFS up here at least ... though that could becuase they'd be sold as peruivan altums. :lol:
