    That would be great Colin – so the real one is the fish pictured here by Charles that only shows a lot of blue under flash photography while the other forms are actually blue in colour?

    Aww man Kesgrave Tropicals again! I’ve already had to warn them twice about not using pics from here and they even posted an entire, copied and pasted profile once….

    Keith O. woworae was described from Muna Island off Sulawesi but since the description was published similar-looking fish have been collected from other islands in the vicinity. As far as I understand it, these can’t be assigned to O. woworae in the absence of scientific confirmation.

    Edit: actually similar-looking fish have been collected from mainland Sulawesi only.

    Er, right?

    Other islands? Not that I’m aware of. The described one comes from the Island, the 2nd and last and only other from the mainland, clostest to the island. A keeper, that I trust, told me they are really different.

    I will try but it’ll have to wait for a bit for a reason, if that’s okay?
