Re: spawning plus info

Hi Mike

Can you direct me to an image of A. sp. Papagei/Parrot? (I know, I need to buy
the book...).

I've got a cruzi-type that I got as 'A. sp.Galaxis'. They're great parents -
one female has until just recently been defending her brood against a trio of
Aphyosemion sjoestdii (sp?)

I'd like to positively identify them.
