A.sp papagei / Parrot

Wow - that is gorgeous. And it certainly ain't the one I've got! I really have
to buy the Romer atlas. I was thinking that my fish was just A. cruzi, and I'm
more certain now. I was just wondering as I bought it as A. sp. galaxis when
they were fry. However, I will try to borrow a digital camera and get some pics
out. I'm a little stretched at the moment though, cos I'm moving in 5 weeks.

With regards to the A. sp. pulchra 'Wilhelmi', my face is a little red there. If
anyone remembers, I had put the Apistogrammoides in with them. Well, it turns
out that the Apistogrammoides had nematodes. So I'm treating the entire tank
with Tramisol.

I'm praying all turns out ok.
