Can’t see the extra fil­a­ment in the tail (yet).

Hi Edvet,

Indeed it might be P. suma­tranus :unsure:
I like the qual­ity of your pic­tures. Keep on post­ing them.

Best regards,

The pics of Edvet don’t show P. suma­tranus but a form of the (Sumatranian)-bintan-like vari­ants.

The short (!) fil­a­ment in the tail of suma­tranus must be vis­i­ble in fish of that size; it’s 1 mm only, but here it’s not to be seen at all.

The rounded spot to be seen in some indi­vid­u­als is not con­clu­sive of suma­tranus; it is present in some bintan-​variants, too. It is much more dis­tinct and pecu­liar in sumatranus.

I’ll just keep on shoot­ing pics and we’ll see. They are partly there for giv­ing me expe­ri­ence in keep­ing and breed­ing these fish.

At least the one in the third pic­ture seems to be real suma­tranus. You can even see the red band in it’s dor­sal fin. They’re from the same batch as mine, which undoubt­edly are the real deal.
My suma­tranus didn’t have the fil­a­ment in the begin­ning, and even now it’s not always clearly vis­i­ble in all indi­vuals. Some even seem to lack it com­pletely. Their courtship dance is head up, so they really are suma­tranus.

I don’t yet exclude the pos­si­bil­ity of them being suma­tranus. Wait until they show their true colour.
