Clearly poliaki (that fit the discription, i.e. Monea, Ekona etc...) that have the dark fins are very different to 'volcanum' but there is very little difference between 'volcanum' and the splendopleure types.
You talk of hybrid analysis. Does anyone know of this being done? I think Scheel crossed the Tiko strain of splendopleure to several BIT/BIV types (probably the loennbergi phenotypes too). IF not, I have some space and if some one is willing to make some strains available (Tiko Green, Kumba (=volcanum) and Lykoko (cf. splendopleue)) I could try and do the crossings.
