I got a couple of pics of the Pearl Danio's that are in my Y. splendida tank:

They are spawning all the time and the splendida are certainly feeding well on all the eggs.

Hmmm, they look more like roseus mate, it's unusual for albo's to have that much colour in the anal fin.

I think this fish is a Czech hybrid between albolineatus and roseus. Used to come up on some of Tom's lists. Great pics btw Mark. /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />

Beautiful fish Mark!

I don't think it's roseus, rather a variant albolineatus ("Pulcher" springs to mind?). A hybrid is a strong possibility though. I think there is also another species that is almost identical to roseus? Just can't think of the name.

Cheers

The most colourful form of wild albolineatus that I've seen is this one pictured by Mr Choy which doesn't really match Mark's fish and was mooted as possible 'pulcher':

Then there's sp. 'blue red stripe' but this doesn't look the same either. I think the 'tweediei' is a less colourful form? Mark's fish looks closer to roseus to me...

I think that picture of Mr choy's albo just shows how variable this fish is, looking at Peter Cottles page for albos , that last one looks more like roseus but not. I'm still convinced it's a brightley coloured albo or a hybrid (most likely the latter /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" /> ) But then again the colour in "tail" area does look similar to my old roseus. but the orange/red line on the anal fin is separate from the body in Marks fish, not in my roseus.

I'm still convinced they are albos though. But still stunning whatever they are! /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Can't be an albo if it's a hybrid buddy. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> You're right about that pic on Pete Cottle's site mind; looks real similar to roseus with the orange belly and all...

By the way, have you got your Aphanius yet??

Edit: Andy why did you two not buy any?

These were just bog standard pearls when I got them but they have been eating the Hikari discus granules and tetra pro crisps that the splendida are eating and their colours have really come out, it also helps that they are pretty much constantly spawning.
