      Hi Mike,
      Is your mailbox full? I'm trying to send you emails, but I'm only receiving delivery error messages!

      My guess is that they're domestic. Your present water values should be fine, although I would lower the conductivity a bit.

      Mike, I have 5 mail Hongsloi males bought at club auction, I have females arriving tomarrow. I already bough 1 female. I Need some suggestions or secrets to get themn to breed. The males are Lovely and would like to perpetuate their genes. I have bred other species. Perameters at around 60 on conductivity, ph around 6.5 sand with Oak leaf tanins and peat moss. thanks, chris

      Hi Johnny, I don't breed apistos for re-sale. I normally trade fish for fish. I only keep fish that aren't found in the commercial trade

      Hey Mike do you ship to California? If so what kind of apistogramma do you have for sale?

      hey
      Hello Mike, I have recently moved to Denver too and wondered if you have any species for sale - particularly Cacatuoides?

        Sorry, the only apistos I have now for sale/trade are A. wolli and A. sp. (aff. luelingi) Cristal. I haven't kept common apistos for a while lately.

      Always interested in sources of dwarf cichlids. I suggest you list species & prices on the forum for all to see.

      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?
      1. Mike Wise

        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.

      Hello Mike. Looking for an Apistogramma Exporter that will supply around 50 fish, I live in Portland, OR. Any advice?

      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!
      Thanks

      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
