Vieja sp. 'coatzacoalcos' removed from the cichlid catalog

'coatzacoalcos' from V. zonata we have removed the former from our catalog, this is done until a clear diagnosis becomes available. We recognize that all species exhibit a certain degree of variability and should not confuse this with a specific differentiation (Juan Miguel Artigas Azas)
