Dear Kathy,
Unfortunately I don't know much about fishes. I have browsed on the intenet
for a while without any success. Beside a few sites where the taxonomy is
described, there is a lot of site for buying such a fish. I also took the
liberty of adding the address of Seaworld where you have the possibility to
ask "Shamu" questions. Maybe they have answers for you all.
