Thanks! Could you keep multiple varieties of the auratus or does it depend?
Your not supposed to. Unless you have 20 years in the hobby and don't have to ask the question then it's not advisable.

They aren't 'varieties'. They are genetically distinct, sometimes locale-specific morphotypes. They should not be kept together, in part because they will cross-breed and yield unidentifiable mutts that will, with 100% certainty, find their way into the hands of other keepers, and continue unidentified into the larger hobby, making future morph determinations impossible.
