yep thats correct do you think they look genuine or a bit shady?
A lot of riverines will show some color variation depending on location. The egg spots all in a row and the bit of reddish color just behind the gills remind me of the burtoni I kept years ago. I don't see anything "shady" about your fish.

err right you are, lol. dunno why i thought it was victorian, probably just assumed because of looks. still, if anything will hybridise with them it would probably be a victorian!

sounds good :) will of course post some pics up later when he has grown a bit. did you find you had to keep 2 males together to bring out the best in your dominant one?
