The attributes you mention are variable among populations, and localities. There is no real cut and dry way to distinguish where certain P. nattereri orginate from because of that variability, but we can at least narrow it down by known areas of collection if the dealers knows where they were collected.

With these so-called Super Reds, these pertain to the reticulated pattern of the fishes body spotting. Its not limited to just one population but spread out among all of them. However, some populations have more than others.

Welcome to karyotypic evolution.
