    A question about Black Rams commercial names

    What would you call that Ram (commercially)? it seems to have some black genes, but nowhere near the pitch-blackness that some show. Together with him, in the same shipment, there were others much darker, but smaller, maybe stunted fish which I presumed that can be correlated (more black - a...

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    btw I'm pretty much certain I will simply never breed this particular fish! for the reason of it's proper ID being hard to know, not knowing location, etc. I will probably just keep it or swap for something else if someone has interest and I need to remove him to use the tank space to breed the...

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    I meant crossing OUT from the list of possible species for identification for this apisto, referring to prior conversation here in this thread!! sorry my bad for not being good at english!

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    Got it! I will research the list and see if I can get closer to a conclusion with time... Based on the previous picture I uploaded, Frank had the opinion that maybe I could cross regani-complex from the list of possibilities. I think the new picture gives much more detail. I will link to a quick...

    yes, I think it may be reticulosa. but I'm certain I will never breed this fish. the erythrura on the other hand I'm waiting for my local store to bring some so I can hopefully find at least one female

    Help with ID (apistogramma mendezi? paucisquamis?)

    the photo exaggerates a bit the silvery because I edited a bit to make the markings on the apistos more clear! but yeas, it is hastatus

    Help with ID (apistogramma mendezi? paucisquamis?)

    These arrived at the local fish store with no identification. I'm wondering if any of you guys can ID them. Seems to be all males to me. My guess was mendezi, but maybe paucisquamis? something else? What do you think? location unknown but certainly Brazilian

    Here is an update on those guys. A little tricky to get good photos because my water is very tinted, which interfere with lightining and color. but here it is

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    I was already planning to get some apistos, on the look for something different (I like the wild fish as opposed to line bred)! So this was perfect It will be a very nice way to start! I just got to hunt for some females for this guy and wait for him to mature a little more

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    I live in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro) and since I wrote this thread I acquired information saying erythrura was actually received in some other stores in town, likely from the same shipment the store I live close by received it. So it certainly will be possible to find it! just have to dig a little...

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    in practical terms, for the intent of breeding, I see it will be nearly impossible to find a pair for the supposed cf. reticulosa, plus even if I get my hands on similar looking fish I won't be sure if they are the same thing, making a risk for hybridization. For the erythrura, sometimes it is...

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    complementing: as I know the fish was collected in Brazil, maybe eunotus complex is unlikely as I see the only one documented to be found in Brazil is A. sp. D16. But I can't find how A. sp. D16 looks or much information about it. I think the regani complex, in the other hand, have many...

    Help with apistogramma Identification

    Thank you very much! If I understood correctly, it is said that A. erythura can be found at Rio Pacaás Novos ocurring in sympatry with A. cf. reticulosa "(Mamoré Blue)". That being said, knowing those fishes are collected specimens and I'm almost certain came from the same shipment, it might...

    dither fish question for Dicrossus filamentosus

    Quick update: I removed the neons and the Dicrossus went for another try! female is current guarding the nest, in different location. male seems to be fairly intimidated by her agressive displays against him and keeping good distance. Wish me luck!

    Despite my username, which seemed appropriate, I am totally new to apistos! but dedicated and I'm loving to read all I can about it. This two were given to me free, not having identification at the store they were in, and I could not resist the kind offer. I hope you guys can help me with both...

    dither fish question for Dicrossus filamentosus

    I will wait for the store to see when they have some nannostomus and make the change, but for now I think I will setup a spare tank for those neons and leave the pair alone. In addition, lately I noticed the male have been showing more discontent for the presence of the neons, trying to keep...

    dither fish question for Dicrossus filamentosus

    I'm pretty sure the first eggs were not eaten by the neons because the leaf was positioned in such a manner that seemed out of their range so to speak but examining more their agility I'm tending to follow the advice of pulling them out! Thank you

    dither fish question for Dicrossus filamentosus

    Here is my doubts about a situation with dither fish I'm new and enjoying very much the ride to the world of south american dwarf cichlids! I recently started a project with a pair of Dicrossus filamentosus. My intention is breeding, to be able to see the full spectrum of behaviors the fish can...
