Re: Does anyone know what this is? #11
Trouble is that as TheDragonLord says, an awful lot of these n sale in the UK are hybrids mislabelled as pure-breds of one species or the other. Other than where they are wild-caught from a reputable source it's more likely they are hybrid than not. It doesn't really matter as long as you like him, but would be a problem if you were breeding them as you'd need to be certain of what you had then to sell on the young.

Irrespective of the label he's more likely to be S. lucippinis or a hybrid with lucippinis in him as true petricolas are very rarely available, despite the labels in the shops.
