I can actually see the need for rigorous collection codes on the
many Aphyosemions, at least until the collection is sorted out
scientifically. Using the codes to keep real color morphs separate is just
fine. But when a guy looks at a pair of N. rachovii and says, "Gee, they are
nice but I just wish they had a code," I begin to get really worried about
the effect this practice is having in the hobby once someone moves from "let
me breed anything as I love killies and am so excited" to the point where
that person starts to consider him or her self a "killinut." I hear more
talks that are full of location junk and devoid of information like Monty's.
Where there is a real need and purpose, I say go with the codes all the way.
But if its just to define 10 collection points of what is obviously N.
guentheri -- why bother? There needs to be common sense applied here before
the thing becomes an elitist and ultimately destructive practice.
