      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,

      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

      Hi Mike, I'm new to this forum and was looking for some advice.
      Recently purchased a kubensis cichlid male. I was wondering if I would be able to house a pair of cockatoos with the kubensis without problems. Would the kubensis compete with the male cockatoo for the female seeing as they are so similar or would they just ignore each other? Tank is 1x3 foot planted, thanks

        I think you mean "Kribensis", the Common Krib. They do not make good tank mates because they communicate aggression/submission differently. This often leads to one killing the other.

      I definitely understand. The price I pay for not being able to make the meeting I suppose!

      Many slides are pics from my friends who let me use them in programs, but not distribute them. Hope you understand.
    15. Aquatic_Adam
      I just wasn't sure if you had a slide show or not. Its not a big deal, I just didn't want to miss out! Thanks anyway :)

      Sorry to hear you can't make it to the talk. I really don't know how this would work.

      Hey Mike! I know you are going to be speaking at the AAAA this upcoming month. I really wanted to be there to hear and talk to you but sadly I will not be able to make it. After the event or before, do you think I could see your presentation? I am always looking to learn. Thanks!

      You can send photos to my personal email ([email protected]). I'm pretty sure your fish are the Orange-tail eunotus.
