This is just my venting---: I read a lot about cichlid keepers respecting the sanctity of natural speciation and I fully, fully agree. My problem is with sellers of cichlids who have to add glitzy names to fish they want to sell. I saw a classified ad where something like "Cardinal Jewelbox Cichlids" were listed for sale. There was no other ID. At the very least fish should have their genus and species included; something like Africanus lesii "Cardinal Jewelbox" (pardon my bogus example) should be used. To me the use of only glitzy names reeks of "HYBRIDS" and if I am taking the time to write about it, it must really bug me. I won't buy a fish if I don't believe it is a naturally occuring species and I hope others will join me in this.
I am posting this in taxonomy because I think it best fits here/.
tanks, tanks everywhere-and nary a tank to spare!!!
