Need identity of a Victorian please...

You can easily find vic breeders out there with accurate names and descriptions. Vics breed like rats, and most breed at 1".

I looked at the GCCA classifieds and there are several cool looking, somewhat uncommon ones for sale.

It might be a better venue then buying fish with zero confidence.

I had discussed these back when they are were on the classifieds with Dave of Dave's rare fish.

We were pretty confident they were not Ruby Green's.

His best guess was Kyoga Flamebacks -

That being said you should not spread the fry of these or sell them as anything other that pretty victorian's.

Victorian's have a big issue around the midwest as being sold as something they are not.

I myself have picked up three different groups in our areas that turned out to be different fish.

I'm leaning towards a Ruby Green

But maybe an SP 44 Thick skin?

Sometimes the Vertical stripes on mine are washed out and then come back

But maybe an SP 35 Tomato?

I got offered a breeding trio of this Victorian for $30 but I'm not sure of what breed it is or if it's a hybrid, or if its worth it. Anyone able to help me out? This is the only picture I got of it. He originally bought them bought them as Ruby Greens but he doesnt think they are.
Thanks
