    What's wrong with my chili rasboras?

    The brigittae/merah hybrids are documented as being sterile- but they can reproduce together. Also, merah and brigittae overlap geographically and some mimicry has been observed, also, there are possible 'undescribed' species in these collection zones. In short, its a mess.
