A. compressiceps or calvus?? ID?
Picked this guy up as A. compressiceps (which I think it is), but can't find a perfect match. I know hybridguy has the same fish (he bought it as a calvus)... has some white spots on it's side/tail area, yellow fins, and blue lips. Looks much more gorgeous in person, but these pics should be good enough for a 100% Id. Anyone??Thar she blows!!!

If you will look at the photos of the alt. comp. that i posted a few days ago, you can see the difference in the 2. look at the mouths and head area.

Crispy i'm thinking that is a comp you have there bud, calvus have
a lot more spots and not as many stripes as that, I stand to be
corrected but I would definitely say you have a comp.Mike!

I guess anything is possible, they are very hard to tell the difference.But these do look a little different in person.

Can you post a clearer pic?
Expecially of the head?
Judging by what I see I suspect it is a Comp.
A clearer shot could confirm.
Nice fish though!!"Rules NEVER apply to all of your fish..."
