I was curious and did a little research. To save others the trouble, here's what I found.

Zoogoneticus tequila


Native To:. Rio Teuchitlan, Mexico
Adult Size: 2 – 2.5 inches
Optimum Temperature: 66 – 71*F
Optimum pH: 6.8 – 7
Optimum dGH: 12
Feeding: Flake, Frozen, DIY, and live foods are accepted. Vegetation should be a large part of their diet.

Usual Swimming Level(s): Mid to Lower Levels
Temperament: Aggressive, should be kept in a species only aquarium
Basic Care: A large densely planted aquarium with plenty of hiding space should be available.
Reproduction: Every 55 to 60 days 10 to 15 fry are born. Fry should be separated from the parents.
Remarks: Last found in 1990 by Derek Lambert, officially described by Shane Webb and Robert Rush Miller in 1998. Named for the Volcano Tequila near the collection site, not the plant.



Characodon Lateralis


Native To: Headwaters of Río Mezquital, Pacific Slope of Mexico
Adult Size: 1 inch
Optimum Temperature: 71 – 75*F
Optimum pH: 7 - 8
Optimum dGH: 14

Feeding: Flake, DIY, and Live foods are all readily accepted. Vegetation should be a large part of their diet, however live foods are preferred.
Usual Swimming Level(s): Mid levels of the aquarium.
Temperament: Very Aggressive.
Basic Care: Should be kept in a large species only setup, well planted with plenty of rocks and hiding places.
Reproduction: Every 55 to 60 days 10 to 20 fry are born.
Remarks: Should not be kept with C. Audax, as hybridizing will occur.
