    A. trifasciata source USA?

    Carter, no on the trifasciata, but I've picked up another species to work with. One of these days...

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    The caudal spot in A. sp. 'Rocafuerte', from my experience, tends to be more of a square and extend somewhat into the caudal fin. And, as Mike W. has pointed out in a previous post, A. sp. 'Rocafuerte' tends to have diagonal rows of dark streaks. You can see both characteristics in photos below...

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    But more connection than most A. allpahuayo? And do not female A. cacatuoides females have the same black on their chins as the female pictured here?

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    It sure could be A.allpahuayo, but I'm not seeing a clear separation between the lateral band and the caudal peduncle spot, as it diagnostic of A. allpahuayo.

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    Video shows female, and photos show both male and female, so you should be good to go with breeding them if you choose to. Looks like a good setup with plenty of leaf litter. Keep us posted!

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    It looks like wild form A. cacatuoides based on dorsal fins extensions, abdominal stripes, caudal fin shape and pattern and lateral line/caudal spot pattern. The black coloration in the fins in the first photos you posted is somewhat unique (in my experience) and thus it could be an A. cf...

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    Well you lucked out. Can you get photos of the female and maybe a better photo of the male with fins more open?

    A. trifasciata source USA?

    Anyone know of a source for good strain(s) of A. trifasciata in the US? By "good" I mean good coloration and even scalation (ie. not overly inbred and showing odd/deformed body shape). Are WC of this species imported periodically (or not)? Would like to work with them some day. Thanks in advance.

    Pair in courtship display. Notice the male's fins are not fully extended but rather folded downward during his shimmy-shake dance. Female showing brood-care behavior and coloration. I expect fry any day now.
