    Figured I’d make a topic here and contribute with my pictures of this new and interesting species.

    Here’s a male:

    And heres a dominant female:

    The stripes that are visible on the females body are actually quite visible on the males too, depending on the mode of course. Which is something I find quite interesting. Haven’t really seen that before.

    Here it is:

    Hm, so there is an undescribed species from Tangkiling? I always thought that was just a foerschi.

    Btw, did you get any wiser on how to tell mandor and foerschi apart yet?

    Well according to the Linke article it is a separate, undescribed ‘species’ based on the female patterning as above, the shape of the caudal fin in males and body colouration. Stefan also believes this is so but also expressed some reservations about whether this group should be separated at all because they’re all so similar.

    According to the article the main differences are:

    B. foerschi; caudal fin rounded and unpointed with predominantly blue/green colouration in the body.
    B sp. ‘Tangkiling’; caudal fin rounded with a slight point and more red/brown colouration in the body.
    B. strohi; extended rays in the upper part of the caudal fin with an iridescent border.
    B. mandor; extended central rays in the caudal fin with darker, but less intense, blue/green body colouration.

    Saw the thread on petfrd as well. I’m just going to stick my neck out and say the fish in the OP is closer to B. foerschi than anything from the coccina complex.
