Re: A hera



Hi again

Funny how it goes up and down with the different species in different parts of the world. I'm from Denmark and a member of SKS (Skandinavian Killi Sällskapet). I just checked the list of species 2002 and found that Aphyosemion hera is one of the most popular species among the members, only outnumberd by a few species like Chromapyosemion bitaeniatum. 

There is at the present 2 stains running here in Scandinavia

Aphyosemion hera "ARK 1-2/96"
Aphyosemion hera  "Bengui 1-2,GJS 00/29"
