Quite frequently I have been noticing what the Oahu petshops are calling
"red bosmani". They don't look anything like M. bosmani more often than
not they look like a M. trifasciata X Glossolepis sp. hybrid. Any ideas as
to a possible id for these fishes. Also I have run into a few M. bosmani
that do appear to exhibit a bit more red pigmentation. Are these "strains"
or again the result of hybridization?
