Well, — I am no expert :) … thats for sure, — but I can always give my best opin­ion.

I think they resem­ble p.alfredi — have a look at the species arti­cles.

But then again, — even if they resem­ble, doesn’t mean they are for cer­tain. There are still many vari­a­tions, and species that are close to p.alfredi.
But I say so because of the wide red band in the tail, the short dor­sal fins, the rim around the fins.

But the colours are still a bit mak­ing it dif­fi­cult, I sup­pose they are not com­pletely nat­ural colours ?

oh, and by the way, — I man­aged to com­pletely delete a post I wrote ear­lier in this topic, — just wanted to be clever admin, which totally failed. But it wasn’t any­thing really impor­tant :)

Hello Helene,

thank you for your reply. To my mind you are one of the experts ;-)

As I can see it’s really hard to find a con­sent.
I took the pic­tures with flash and changed the prop­er­ties to get a near-​natural result.
The red you are writ­ing about is more like a brown or dark wine red. The color on the pic­tures is like in real.
On the pic­tures of Alfredi I only find strong red in the tail fins. The sec­ond inner white-​blue line is almost miss­ing on my Paros. The red in the dor­sal fin is miss­ing or rather is just exist­ing as a lit­tle part in the brown I talked about.
The yel­low touch near the head and in some white parts of the tails is also real.
With­out flash the brown looks like black and is hard to rec­og­nize.
I’m won­der­ing about the red eyes.
To my mind it’s not alfredi, but I’m not a expert :-)

Chris

Just an update to the species.
Mar­tin H. wrote to me that it should be P. cf bin­tan.
I have 12 fishes now with around 4 or 5 males.

I will put 2 pairs into my 300l tank with Sp. vail­lanti, betta coc­cina and boraras to observe their behav­ior in a big­ger habi­tat with dif­fer­ent zones.

If there is some­body inter­ested in a pair in berlin, just write me.
