1) I didnÂ´t comprehended, what do you think all in your first question. Our standards are free for everybody and for it itÂ´s approachable for download on our "angelÂ´s sites".
2) a. These standards may be so much easy. Why make some special standards for species, what are described very good in their own originally describes and these describes are full accessible?
b. Yes, OK. It tied also with chapters about these fishes in my monograph, what be printing in beginning of next year (Czech language. English in later times).
3. ItÂ´s relative easy. We know good, that scalare have clear red eyes, leopoldi have ochre - yellow eyes, altum have grey /uncolor/ eyes with small raspberry flecks and all known undescribed species, where isnÂ´t sure, if theyÂ´re scalares or some new fishes are eyes also red.
4) At us in our AutumnÂ´s "Botanical Garden" in September this year had Heiko his perfect lecture about wild angels. Yes. He know very good much things about these wild populations in nature, but he hadnÂ´t some free times make study these all fishes more years in tanks. Or not?
I have one my own proverb about this great fishman: " If he is my first "Amazonian Guru", he isnÂ´t God and only God know all".
If I began at HeikoÂ´s Czech lecture, I must remember on his hypotheses about possibility in more than no three or four, but more possible good species of angels, what are living in Amazonia. Yes, very right. I agree with him in all cases.
If did you had interests and knowledges about awake of "Peru - altum" forms and their arrival into middle Europe, you must remember for end of 80Â´s, where were came two different forms of angels from Peru. Both had same name as "Peru - altum". First of them (they were came into Czech Republic from NDR) were new fishes and some from GermanÂ´s aquarists gave them also name as P.sp. "Red Spotted" (from Peru), P.scalare "Red Spotted" and also P.sp. or P.scalare "Peru-altum". But in same time were came from NDR also new natural population of very nice and more colored than classical Brasilian scalares also from Peru - they were also called as "Peru-altum".
About first form we knew, that they were hunted in Nanay river and about second form - in some place on Amazona near by Iquitos. If first form with nice pink-red flecks were more difficult fishes for spawning, second form were easy to spawning. Much of breeders no only at us were spawned them and these fishes were traded on fish market as "Peru-altum". So came power of International market, what gave this popular name into second form. For better communication we were must began resolved both forms for so much serious names. That second form, what were made in too much thousands pieces for all world, stay name as "Peru - altum" and first rare form got better name after river where theyÂ´re live - "Nanay".
If do you look on this first form so much good, do you must see there more differences from classic lines of scalares. There may be it, that these fishes could be some special local form from scalare, but there also may be way, that theyÂ´re really some new specie. So after it we see so much serious way, call them as Pterophyllum species "Nanay" - P.sp. "Nanay" and into that time, than some qualify take be them and make some good work about them and declaring them, anyplace they belong.
And also Heiko in Prague was talk about more than six good species of angelfish. I agree with him and for it also we were constitued more than three groups of wild types. (Differences between four types are in drawing fishes in standards there).
So are our Directions prepare and open for all possible new species, what can be discover sometime in next times also.
And about "standards" what you have in your sites. I know it from first instants, when these prescriptions were began. I know, who wrote it and know this aquarist very good. I was one from first international judgeÂ´s team in 2006, when we got it and really we were got shock from it. He, who was wrote it, is very good man and I never telling his name, but he isnÂ´t Angelfish expert and if he was wrote it, he had at first knowledges more than twenty years old and at second, he was very hard ill in same time (in Prague 2006 he didnÂ´t been, because he was ended in hospital). It all had share on whole his work, what no only me but also sundry od judges called as full diletant work what have too much far way from facts.
We negotiated in these time on it, that in together work we must make really serious competition directions and H.Linke said to take my old BreederÂ´s forms system as main guidelines for this new work. In these times I and also two Czech judges were made our drafts about it, what had Dr. BydÅ¾ovsky or Mr.KolÃn translate into German language and sent to H.Linke. If we gave our drafts to both men, more than one year we gotnÂ´t some answer. If we didnÂ´t know, if whatsoever somebody sent it to Germany.
If came end of 2007 year, came behind me some experts from Czech Discus Association and also some people from other aquaristic groups, who want to take things into our hands and make be new and really serious directions for some possible competitions. So I gave altogether team, where were experts for Discus, Livebearers, Bettas and also Killfishes Internatinal Championships and over December (2007) to Februar (2008) we made our Standards and Directions what were leaned about newest knowledges from Nature and also my new BreederÂ´s forms system, what I was just finished.
If I was met in end of Februar 2008 on one aquaristic action Mr. KolÃn, I was said him about it and offered this new for use. After one week came answer, that he whatsoever misunderstand, about what it is........... In his second action - first action in ČeskÃ¡ LÃpa (2008) - he let him all judgement after these primitive directions. If do you saw it there, you must see, that there didnÂ´t been more Czech breeders. Yes. Our people know good as is Mr. Kolin connoisseur and gavenÂ´t their fishes there. How is he serious man, had possibility knew also Heiko Bleher, what do you could seen on some World discussions this Summer ........... How level have actions in PragueÂ´s Botanical Garden you can see in Heiko BleherÂ´s articles in his sites or in new article from F.Denito in new TFH issue also.
Now, after AKVÃ
