BOUNCE killietalk at aka_org: Admin request of type /^sub\b/i at line 6
I looked at the Arizona site info. I want to be sure I understand
you completely. Are you saying that the taxonomists are about ready to
declare Fp. nigerianus is a separate species from Fp. gardneri, not merely a
sub-species of gardneri? As I understand it, your new label basically means
Fp. nigerianus (used to be called gardneri) Akampka. And you are basically
recommending that I do likewise with my labels. Have I got it correctly?
By the way, (I infer that you have this population too) have you had
any of the dark morphs I'm describing? I've got five out of about 40-45
fish, 3 male and 2 female. I placed the female parent with a mature (I
think) F1 male. I want to see what results.
