Hi Frank

The problem with wild Cr sajijca will be, they are only found in Costa Rica. And exporing wildlife from Costa Rica is illegal

One of my local fish shops,( Maidenhead Newport ), had a large wild pair of sajica, they spawned and supplied their own shops with. So at least some sajica especially from a maidenhead shop, could very well be F1.

I'll have to pop in some day and check, they were quite an old pair.

This pair was bought last year from a Maidenhead shop. I have no idea where they got it from, except that they were part of a batch from a supplier, and not a pair that a customer brought in.

I have seen the gold morph at Don Conkels did not seem like a hybrid to me. Very nice!
