I have what was sold to me as a F1 Viejita now that he is grown I would like a identification if can be, I contacted the importer and he said he is the one that got the wild parents, here is the male P1010256.JPG And another one I received as a wild CacatuoidesP1010249.JPGnot from importer but through someone else.

Hi all,
I'm no expert, but that looks more like allpahuayo than cacatuoides to me
I wondered about that, but A. allpahuayo, as well as the black chin ( ‘Schwarzkinn'), should have a detached black caudal peduncle blotch and red/orange lips.

I get more of these wrong than right, so you may well be right.

cheers Darrel

It already sounds like you know much more than me. My comment was based on more superficial characteristics than you have mentioned. I'll bow out of this one I think!

No thats 100% wild cacatuoides. You can tell by the orange spot on the tail. Allpahoyo and Cacatuoides are in the same family so theyll look similar anyways but that spot shows its cacatuoides

That is true viejita. The red dorsal lappets and spot pattern are correct for viejita. Also, if you got them from Ethan, then definitely the correct fish, as they are offspring from my wild pairs that I sold to him to distribute. Not macmasteri. Collection location I received my wild fish with is "Puerto Gaitan."
