We are fostering some rainbows for our aquarium society.
They bought them (and a bunch of other fish) for a special auction
on Sunday.

One of the other members has these fish (they were boughten
from a large aquarium store in another city)...Anyways, they were
boughten under the name of "Orange Rainbows"..and when we
asked the member that has them, he told us that the shop told him
that they were M. trifasciata. When I called the store and asked
for the species name, and told the manager my story, he told me
that they are NOT trifascuatas, but his order list showed them as
being M. splendidas, but he did not have a sub species.

Anyways, I dont want to see these fish being sold as tri's.
They really are a stunning fish, and I would buy them myself, but I
dont really want to keep anything "scrub" in my tanks...

If you could please go to http://www.geocities.com/namethisfish
and use the email link there to reply with, I would be forever
grateful. My email server is down, so I can only send out mail, I
cannot recieve.

Thanks, Shamus Page
