How goes everyone,

Just a quick question on Apistogramma Cacatuoides.

Picture # 1
We had a larger Male, that was sold as a double red. But some people say he was a triple red??

Picture # 2
Sold to us recently as a triple red. Much more coloration, but the analfin not as defined as the male sold as a double red.

Can someone tell me the difference lol, are they both triple's ?
Is it the extra coloration like the blues and yellows what makes the triple a triple?

Thanks in advance,

Having red color on the unpaired fins is what makes it double or triple. Two fins, double. All three fins, as both of these fish show, is Triple Red. Just not a very good one.

So stronger color, stronger genes?
