Default E. Anthonyi ID ... Santa Isabel OR Salvias (Pics)

Hello All ...
I have a group of Santa Isabels that just started breeding ... (i have a male currently transporting tads and i found 2 clutches of 20+ eggs ea.)

I currently added my other 3 females to the group today (they started breeding within an hour after adding them) and i noticed the breeding female looked different from the other females.

After some research and speaking to a few others, i suspect this female of being a "Salvias" and not a "Santa Isabel" that she was sold to me as. (I will add, this female was purchased from a completely different person than my other SIs ... so they have different lines. He got this female from Ron McGee and my SIs are Sean Stewart line)

I did not want to take any chances, so i pulled the suspect female, and euthanized all the eggs and tapoles produced by her and my male SIs.
I searched every inch of their enclosure and i am POSITIVE ive found every egg and tadpole.

I know i probably was a bit preemptive in my reaction, but
I WILL NOT ruin my name by producing hybrids whether its accidental or not.

I spoke to the person i got them from, and they swear they are almost certain that it was a SI, but like i said, im not taking any chances.

Just want all of your opinions. Thx.

Female In Question: (About 1yr old)

The other SI females: (they are about 7mo old)

Hard to tell just by pics. Source of breeder is the only real way of knowing.

Not really any way of knowing for sure without tracking the breeder.

Although after looking at it again it could go either way, since the pictures are dark it is hard to tell exactly. The only way to know is from the person they originated from.

It can be hard to tell, but my salvias and SI's are very easy to distunguish.

From my own personal experience and others ive spoken with ... SIs usually have atleast one wide stripe ... salvias have 3 thin lines. This females, while her stripes look cream and not blue or green tinted, they are all 3 thin ... and as i stated, its too close to call and not worth the risk. Id rather seperate her. Ill prob give her to a friend free of charge that i can trust to not mix her with anything else.
