I need some pointers on confirming an ID on a commercially imported
fish I got hold of two days ago. I have two trios of what appear to be
Fundulopanchax arnoldi (yes! - maybe...). Can anyone give me pointers on
doing a visual ID on the fish? (Yes, I know I have no location - it's
commercially imported). I'm looking at a filamentosum type fish, with
very little blue in the body but yellow (brown-tinged) in the fins and
red on the body. They're young fish, four days off the plane, so
surprises could await me as they develop, but they're already, in
subjective terms, quite beautiful.
The fish come from a trustworthy enough source in Nigeria. I understand
fish from the same commercial collecting site have been accepted by DKG
people as arnoldi, but I prefer, as much as I can, to double-check. I
can't afford to pickle any for science... It seems too good to be true,
but if I'm fooling myself, I don't want to inadvertantly deceive anyone
else should I manage to breed the fish.
The deltaense from the same source are without a doubt deltaense - man,
they're nasty and neat-looking.
Any info would be appreciated.
