Altum, leopoldi and scalare...

Where does the "false" altum fit into the Pterophyllum genus?

Also, could you ask your friend if he's willing to compare notes via e-mail?
My techniques are outlined on Erik Leung's e-quaria.com, and I'd provide the
specific link if I could get through to the server this morning.

And since this is the Apisto List, if the two of you _are_ willing to trade
notes, then contact me off-list to continue.

As I am having to rebuild everything from the ground up here ("Great balls
o' fire...isn't that _my_ house the fire company's working on?"), I thought
to end my five year "drought" and get back into Altums again. But because of
this "rebuild", my on-line time is a little spotty. I'm glad I got the
chance to read things today...
