Hi parofriends,

last week I found “P. deiss­neri” on the home­page of e-​pets and decided to order 2 pairs together with another species for an igl-​member. The Paros will arrive on Fri­day.
I will take some bet­ter pic­tures to show on the forum.

To my opin­ion it seems to be P. Linkei. The fol­low­ing link shows some bad qual­ity pic­tures, but on some you can see some males. What do you guys think about it?

I be back to Paro heaven.

Best regards

Hello Chris,
and wel­come here.

From what I am able to rec­og­nize from the pic­tures, you are prob­a­bly right. We can how­ever be sure they are not P. deiss­neri as these were likely never imported com­mer­cially and we are even wor­ried they could be the first paros extinct.

In fact, every­thing we know is only some kind of approx­i­ma­tion, because we know that we do not know all the laws as yet. There­fore, things must be learned only to be unlearned again or, more likely, to be corrected.Richard P. Feyn­man

Also I for­got to men­tion that once you find paros offered by shops and whole­salers, they will very often be marked as P. deiss­neri. Some­how it seems that very few peo­ple are inter­ested in chang­ing this pratice.

The more I look at it I won­der if they could be pahuen­sis. Could some­one expe­ri­enced look at it? The fish have typ­i­cal “shop” col­oration, I think I may have over­es­ti­mated myself :)

I rule out pahuen­sis. This species is struc­turally dif­fer­ent: it has a dis­tinctly longer dor­sal fin, than linkei. Right, the colour is with­out sig­nif­i­cance, since the fish are typ­i­cally frigh­t­ended in the trader’s sit­u­a­tion. But struc­ture is sig­nif­i­cant.

Good morn­ing,

I keep my opin­ion to receive linkei tomor­row. I will take bet­ter pic­tures on the week­end, if they already dis­play to get some more opin­ions from you fel­lows. After­wards we will find the right answer, I guess.
