Anablepsoides bondi – Photo located on killispratique.net which is Daniel Vilpoix website.  No photographic attribution was noted.

Type locality:  La Florida, Caracas, Venezuela, in a broken pipe tributary to the rio Guaire.

There is speculation that Anablepsoides bondi may be a synonym for Anablaepsoides hartii.  A. harti however is primarily found on Trinidad island in the Caribbean

It is considered a relatively easy species to propagate using floating and top mops.   Eggs should be picked and placed in a small hatching container.  Incubation runs about 14 days.  Fry are large enough to accept newly hatched brine shrimp.
