Altolamp ID Cont

I trust the LFS I got them from to have received them from a reliable source, but I wouldn't doubt they could have been mislabeled. All of the species profiles I've seen for yellow calvus are white bodied, dark barring, and yellow tinted fins, whereas these are yellow bodied, with dark barring, and yellow fins. Even when they lose all of they're dark color, whether it be turning the lights on, or just losing it for a minute or two, they just go yellow not white.

I might try and ask for the supplier information, send some pictures, see if maybe he has some insight on what they sent, or even a collection point.

Thanks Pam!

Hi Paul,

That is the place to start, perhaps they can shed some light on it?
