I agree. To give the benefit of doubt to the dealer, the common name "Peruvian Altum" may be the confusion. This is, as was mentioned earlier, just a variant of the P. scalare species, not P. altum.
I do wish common names would fall into non-use.
You might find more info in our profiles, as both species are included with photos. Knowing the oprigin of the so-called "altums" might help to convince the dealer, since the true altum is wild caught and has a specific range as given in the profile.
