It could well be, this is not a common species in fact I don't think I've ever seen one.

If the ID is correct, maybe Iamfish's images could be added to the Cat-eLog?

The ID checks out (checked against the Fly River book), so I will add the pics, thanks for the heads up!

Sorry I have not been great about updating my fish. I have these pictures as well from a few months after I got him, if any of these would be better. I will try to get some new pictures of him tomorrow and will talk about my experience with him after keeping him for over 2 years now.
