Nate, I never discussed with you the issues with the possible S. maculatus, nor have I discussed the issues as to why Frank is involved and receiving specimens. You and I have never talked about it. You're speaking from 3rd hearsay, and I suggest that you stop. You don't know what you're talking about. I will say that it is to hopefully put a species name on the fish to better serve the hobbyist. I will also say that the fish is rather interesting. Pedro is somewhat obligated to keep quiet on the situation (at least I would hope so) until something proves out scientifically.

There is alot of work that goes on behind the scenes concerning identifying fish. Let me point out that I don't know 100% what species it is, but hopefully, that will be decided in the coming months.

Hope that helps a little.

Frank told you wrong, I never spoke to you, I said when you brought in the "ruby red spilos which you and Ron began selling them as later said that you worked with Frank or something or another and then you posted on Pfish they were Maculatus, or at least thats what you sold them as. That is all I ever meant to say, Frank likes to put words into peoples mouths for them

Wes, no, they are the same fish from the same river.

Nate, I read what you wrote in the glass scratching thread and responded to it. Frank didn't tell me anything.

Personally? Nate bores me. Here is the link to S. maculatus for those that wish to read what Nate is yapping about. S. maculatus. I don't know anything about George's fish other than discussing S. maculatus and his providing me photos, but I do know what Clay and I discussed and the fishes we talked about are the S. maculatus. You may note I also divert S. maculatus link to S. spilopleura. The rest is in Nate's huge imagination/ego and would take a lifetime to try and figure out.

Yes, I originally called them ruby red spilos. They are similar to spilopleura. However, after running a few pics by Frank, he said it was a possibility of S. maculatus.

However, I again point out, that these conversations never took place with you, so again, you're talking from whatever outside observations you think you have made.

Also, I'm not sure how that applies to scratched glass.

Frank seriously doesnt understand what I am talking about

George had in fish he sold as Ruby Spilos and they were a ruby color

Clay sold fish as ruby spilos they were a yellow orange and looked just like the fish Pedro has in my opinion, the fish clay had was later called Maculatus after talking to Frank, and since Ron and Clay worked together or something, they both called them Maculatus

there is not imagination or ego envolved

and Clay I only read what you posted, I never said I spoke to you directly

Nate, nobody understands what you're talking about because half the time you don't make any sense. And the other half it's so ridiculous that we can hardly fathom why you're saying it. Everyone knows you didn't talk to Clay, it's painfully obvious. Whatever other conversations you had were obviously extremely limited because you don't have the first clue of the actual subject matter.

Having to put up with you was enjoyable for a while, stirred up the mundaneness of every day posting, but now you're beyond irritating. Seek therapy or something, good grief you're even more neurotic than normal.

Btw, to whoever was chastizing me about the uni/engineering thing, not sure why you were offended by that. It'd be like me getting offended for someone saying something about my field. I've no doubt some good engineers come out of that school, but it's not one I hear about when top eng courses are mentioned. I come from an engineering town, one that'd rival most ivy league schools. Was in fact enrolled in mech. eng. for a while until I decided it wasn't something I wanted to do as a career. Certainly not because I couldn't do it (far from it). But anyways, my point is we hear all this "I'm in engineering blah blah" crap, and frankly it scares the sh*t out of me that a person like Nate is going to be a PEng., well allegedly anyways. If this level of arrogance and unwillingness to learn and listen are any indication of his normal behaviors, well let's just say that engineers are supposed to be more analytical and thoughtful in their work, not a bunch of unconfirmable data and wishful thinking. Hell, we're still seeing the S. niger BS crop up now and then, soon we'll be having piranhas that can dislocate their jaws that like to play tic-tac-toe on the glass.
