Victorian Hybrids

Postby mbargas » Fri Sep 09, 2016 3:07 pm

I've seen a number of warnings against at mixing various species of Victorians to prevent hybridization.
I've never seen any such hybrids. Anyone here seen any?

I think some believe many of the Victorians on the market are hybrids.

Are you sure you've never seen hybrids? Many of the species look so similar, if you aren't getting the fish from a trusted breeder, how can you be certain?
Why in the world are we here? Surely not to live in pain and fear!

Well, maybe I have seen them without knowing. How about the Pundamilia 'red flank'. Is it a hybrid?

Here is a pic of my more mature red flank. It is the most dominant fish in the tank:

Hi yur fish seems strange for a red flank, Im' not sure this is a good strain, and yu better avoid keeping it with nyererei or other pundamilia species
