      Do you possibly know where i could find apisto wilhelmi/ abucaxis? I thought you might have a lead.

      I don't have anything to sell; reserved for club talks. You'll find some interesting apistos at the ACA convention this weekend in Denver.

      Mike, i got some eunotus from you at one of the local auctions here some time ago. I am looking to make some apistos the centerpiece of a 125 planted that has been set up for a couple of months now and was wondering what interesting species that you might have. Thanks

      Hi Mike, I would like to organize webinars about apiso's. What I' d like to know is if you would like to give a presentation? And if so what subjects would you have and what would it cost. I read you give lectures... But for me your just a little bit far away :) and I hoped this would be an intersting way to share.
      Kind regards, Jacco.

      Any very small live food. Microworms are often used. What is important is that the food moves in the water.

      Hey mike, I need some help. Apart from baby brine shrimp, are there any other food that I can feed the fry when they hatch? I don't think I can find them here in thailand.

      It seem Rio tigre has a red portion than others location. The tank which my bitaeniata was kept was labeled the name Bitaeniata victoria(??) and Bitaeniata shishita so i don't know what exactly locaton.
      thank you so much for replying my answer. : )

        The Rio Shishita is just downstream from the Rio Ampiyacu & a common collecting site. Victoria could be for any of several towns.

        My A. bitaeniata is from the Río Tigre. It is a really beautiful population. I brought it back from my 2008 trip to Peru. The photo was taken in Peru. Your yellow form is a form found in many locations in the Peruvian Amazon. I don't know exactly from where your fish came. Color will vary, but color foods will bring out existing colors.

      Methylene Blue shouldn't affect the bacteria in a sponge filter, only the fungus & spores. The sponge filters are easy to fill w/bacteria.

      Mike, can email me your up to date list of apistos. Our BAP chairman here in Pittsburgh says from wht he can find out that the sp. Pebas I turned is not valid and should be Papagei. I got a new computer so I lost your email address or I would have emailed you.
      How are the Cruzeiro getting along?? Any fry yet??
