P. opal­lios was cre­ated by Ekona
These fish were imported by Black Water Aquat­ics in 2019 and orig­i­nated, accord­ing to the exporter, from the same area inhab­ited by P. linkei. They also appear to pos­sess mark­ings quite sim­i­lar to P. opal­lios. With these two fac­tors, it could be rea­son­ably sur­mised that these are, in fact, P. opal­lios or a very closely related form. They were small when I received them, but have been grow­ing out well. A more recent import of P. opal­lios has arrived with males show­ing some­what dif­fer­ent mark­ings, but also reported as orig­i­nat­ing from the same habi­tat as P. linkei.
