    A. borrellii exhibit polychromatism within each population just like A. agassizii. Without knowing where it was collected I couldn't give you a population name. If it is a domestic bred fish then it is just 'A. borellii'. Without red on the face, it obviously isn't an Opal strain. If you have to have a special name for the fish, just describe the colors. Pretty fish btw.
