The members of the VAKC are maintaining the Blue strain of this fish which
is designated as Pachypanchax Omalonotus Nossi Be Isle. The fish in my
tanks are Blue but I think that we also have some in the Club with yellow or
orange markings. I suspect that the Strain is the same, but the locality
has different colors within. I will confirm this at our next meeting on 13
Dec and report back. Bill Stone Sends.
