I know that an angelfish species that resembles the true altum has been bred with
some regularity.  When I told a couple of "authorities" about Rich's spawn of an
altum, they were skeptical that he had spawned the true altum -- until they saw
the photo.

So from what I hear, a spawning of the true altum is still a rare occurence.  But
I'm not in a position to argue it.
