    Are you sure this is a sp papagei ?
    Doesn't looks like one to me.

    I'm getting better at it!:redface:
    for me it was the bleu behind the head that gave it away.

    Well, this fish is known as A. sp. Algodon in the local fish market;
    As discussed before, Algodon is also known as A. sp. Papagei/parrot,
    A. sp. Nanay. I personally believe that it belongs to the same species
    as A. sp. Pebas even though some people believe that Pebas and Papagei
    belong to the same Pebas-complex but represent two different species...

    hehe.. it really looks like maltessers ^_^

    Hmm, it is another kind of aqua-soil, which has a similar
    function as the ADA aqua-soil (Japan) while this one is produced locally
    in Hong Kong and the price is slightly lower than that of the ADA's.
    On the other hand, this "maltessers"-soil does not melt easily and
    this feature is its major advantage.
