I picked up a Mac today and wanted to know if anyone else owns any and if I can get some more info on them?I was also wondering how are they classified?Are they a varient of Spilo?They seem much thicker in body shape than a Spilo almost as thick as most Pygo's but has a body shape very similar to S. Spilo?

CF = complex form meaning they are undiagnosed ( no description made on them) because their morphology is to close to S. spilopleura to be considered distinctive. Keep in mind we are talking about internal as much as external characteristics besides some lessor characters (ie; caudal fin band and coloration). I'm sure you have seen these called S. medinai, but these are not the true Venezuelan S. medinai which have yellow eyes. The only real argument among hobbyists is that they don't understand the complexities of placing a scientific name on a fish and often times its because they overhead a statement. For example; S. spilopleura CF is similar appearing to S. medinai. Translation: It may look the same in someways but is not the same.
