That's better!

I get the feeling that the species we suspect are more than one
or have a larger geographical distribution than normal have these
variations in difficulty/requirements to breed. A. pertensis may
be one, A. gibbiceps and T. candidi are others I know of having
this variation. A. agassizii must be a prime example, ranging
from easy to really hard depending on where they come from.

Best of luck
