Nice fish Blueblue.

Is sp "sunrise" different from A.atahualpa which was called "sunset" initially?

Having two very similar names is confusing I think.

Thanks KenL.

Well, Sunrise is equal to Sunpin, which was also called the
cf. Atahualpa "Tail-tip", or "Sunset Lyratail"...
When we compare these two, the most significant difference is that,
the male Sunrise has a double tipped caudal fin whereas the male Sunset (Atahualpa) has a round caudal fin. In addition, the coloration is also
different, Sunrise has a pale yellow (just like the color of sunrise) and blue body, Sunset has an orange-brown (just like the color of sunset) body. ^.^
