    Apisto Elizabethae

    They have been in Sydney before and an old apistophile Thomas in Sydney had some success with these fish. I can't help with the fair price question - I think it is high, but they are not common so..... Persoanlly I have access to a great shop up here in Brisbane who indulges all my needs.

    Two bigger experts han me have said female...... I think boy due to lack of defined black particularly on the ventrals and too much blue hue throughout the fish. One thing for sure - put them together and you will soon findout.

    Ap. guacamayo

    At last one I know - Apistogramma "fresa" is Apistogramma eremnopyge - but I prefer Fresa or Apistogramma "strawberry" - cause I can pronounce those words..... Great fish - mine tend to be a bit shy.

    ID Assistance please

    Steph, I feel bad having put you on to these fish that I saw them on the weekend and did think the ID was not quite right with the female in colour dress. I didn't think to let you know and am sorry. They are very nice fish and surprisingly quiet with fry towards each other.

    Water Question

    Testing my water from my rain water tank I observed the following: pH 7.2 KH 30 mg/L GH 20mg/L I cannot understand how soft water can have a neutral pH and hold it so well. Please explain? Steve

    WTB: Apistos Australia

    Kandee, Look up Fishchicks on the southside - she has all you could possibly want and can get any Apisto you want. If you can wait a couple of weeks over on the QLD forum a few of us are looking to get together on the weekend of the 16th - cup of coffee - apisto chat and then shopping.

    Apisto ID

    Hi Mike, The only ID locality ID for these fish is Columbia (narrows it down a little?) Does this question the broad black caudal stream ID? I have not bought this species but have asked the people who hae to keep an eye on the lateral line of displaying males/ females in the hope...

    Some ID's

    Hi Mike, You will have noticed that in the same order the Apsitogramma "Inka" are listed as well as the Apistogramma baenchi "diamond". This is not surprising. I have seen one of the lists they order from and they have multiple names for the same fish. I take it that as these are wild fish...

    Great idea - thanks.

    Slow growth rate must have something to do with it - you gotta be dedicated to breed them, whereas anyone will breed cacatoides.
