27 years old (nearly)!! How's that for ancient! :)
Thanks for clearing the morleti issue up for me BB. I'm curious, where do you (and Hans for that matter) get all this invaluable information on species classification etc? My limited resources are Baensch 1-3, Axelrod, a couple of Tetra press books and a few misc aquarium books.
Yesterday at a store up the road from the "great" one I saw 3 "morleti", only one of them was morleti though. The other two had longer bodies and less steep foreheads. Also they lacked the dorsal stripe. They had the same body colour as morleti but had a single black spot (maybe a band) on the caudal peduncle. Were these caudipunctata do you think? They looked like Ken Childs' photo in the species section. Should I rush back there this weekend to buy them at the rock-bottom price of 1.70 pounds?
Sorry I don't have that book you asked about. I am in the process of expanding my book collection though so if I come across it I'll buy it.
