P. fenestratus "Blue Face?"

Post by chc » Mon May 03, 2010 10:15 pm

I've got a large male of this so called "Blue Face" fene. Does anyone have any background info on this fish. I've heard conflicting reports. Some say it's a man made hybrid, others say it's a real species. It doesn't look like any fene I've seen before, but it sure is beautiful.......and has a blue face.

I thought fenes had red faces?

Thanks Smitty! I know they stop by here from time to time, so I'll post a pic so they or someone else could take a shot at identifying the fish. Sorry for the poor quality, but it's a phone pic of an outdoor tank with a bunch of algae on the front pane. You'll get the idea though!

Yes Kevin... Haha! I'm pretty familiar with them!
