Pundimillia sp. Crimson Tide or hybrid?

Postby GVSailor » Wed Jul 27, 2011 10:59 pm

I purchased these fry as P. sp. Crimson Tide from a friend. The father was a wonderful specimen and looked just like he should. As the fry have grown up they have started to look much different than the father. Is this normal for juvies, or is this likely a hybrid?

I don't know...something about the head shape doesn't look quite right.

Here is a more recent picture. I can't tell if he is going to grow out of it or if something isn't quite right.

His coloring looks alright in that one. Maybe his head shape just looked strange from the angle before.
