Type locality is ‘Goedverwagting, a plantation on the Coast of Demerara, Guyana’ but this species is widely-distributed throughout rivers of Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana, plus the eastern Amazon drainage in Amapá and Pará states, Brazil.

It’s also reported from the rio Madeira, lower and middle Amazon as far upstream as the lower rio Negro, and Río Orinoco in Venezuela.

Though wild fish are still exported on a regular basis, many of those seen on sale in the aquarium trade are farmed commercially.

Wild populations vary in colour pattern depending on origin, and some populations have previously been described as distinct species
