      Hi, Mike.
      We are a company of Amazonian ornamental fish and we have many species of Apistogrammas.
      I would like to offer on this forum. Are you interested?

      Dear Mike, I was previously in contact with Tom C about apistogramma cruzi true species. Mark and Tom sent me some and I reproduced them few years ago.
      I am at the moment trying to find one or two female of that species (I lost them when I had my first boy).
      Today I am trying to reproduce Apistogramma True Cruzi but I have no female anymore. Do you still have those fishes? Do you know anyone keeping those fishes?

        I'm sorry but I have never kept the true cruzi. As far as I know the only time it was collected recently was by Tom, in 2011 I believe. Extras that Tom didn't keep were sold to an exporter by his collector/guide and sold commercially under the name A. Christoff. It just is too hard to collect regularly for commercial sale. AFAIK all true cruzi are offspring from this collection.

        Thanks a lot for your answer Mike! And If you hear about true cruzi you know I am interested ;-) kind regards. Damien.

      Locally, no, but this is a common apisto. Have you checked Wet Spot's web site?

      I am looking for speakers for our club, Greater Portland Aquarium Society, for next year. We meet the second Sunday of the month at 3:00. I am just starting to set the line up, so dates at this point are pretty open. Would you be interested/ available for giving a talk. If so let me know which dates would work best for you. Short fight from Denver!

      Hi Mike,
      Mike I live in Bermuda. Do you know anybody that exports small orders of Apistos & South American Dwarf Cichlids to Bermuda? Any help would be appreciated. Also I read that you have an authorised translation of Die Buntbarsche Amerikas by Ingo Koslowski, Great book but only in German would love to get a translation for my kids. Thanks for your time, your outstanding reputation precedes you. Cheers, Jay

      Hi Mike,

      there is a discussion going on on Facebook about the top two fish from this thread http://www.apistogramma.com/forum/threads/id-please.18714/
      Most people believe it's A. (cf.) personata. However, according to the collector the location is Rio Inirida and thus not one of the known locations of (cf.) personata. Would be very interesting to hear your thoughts about this!

      Thanks and best regards,
    20. jj_ferg
      Hi Mike, my husband & I enjoyed your talk at CCAC tremendously! So much so, in fact, that we now have a female A. baenschi in quarantine from our club auction. I need advice on the best places to find an appropriate mate for her, as I understand from Lief Johansen that stores aren't the best sources. Thanks! Jenn
