English subscripts for Stelzig's comments and commentary in English for Andreas Stelzig film of Altum collection

This has to be the best "in the wild" Altum footage so far!

Here we always speak of Inirida or Atabapo/Ventuari type. I see that Simon also has a tank labeled as Orinoco. I am not very good at picking out the differences, but it is something that caught my attention.

To label an altum tank as Orinoco most likely means one of two things. Either Simon is not sure which tributary the fish in that tank came from or, they may come from the actual mainstream Orinoco, near the mouth of a tributary (this will most likely occur near the peak of the dry season, when the fish look for waters that are not too shallow). I simply believe Simon knows they are from the Orinoco basin (all true altums are), but does not have enough information as to what tributary the fish in that tank came from (Inirida, Atabapo, Ventuari, Sipapo, Catañapo, etc.). There are many more tributaries and subtributaries of the Orinoco that have P. altum, but the major producers are the ones we most hear about.
