    Apisto ID and sexing

    I'm really not sure about the sex of the smaller one, might also be female...

    Apisto ID and sexing

    Let's say it this way: nothing in your photos/video speaks against your second fish being a domestic strain of A. macmasteri too. These can be difficult to sex, but if I had to make a guess, I would say that the smaller one is a male too.

    Apistogramma i.d. please

    Looks like a form of A. (cf.) cacatuoides.

    ID confirmation please

    There are several wild forms/populations, some of them most likely different species. Color enhanced domestic forms like "A. hongsloi II" do probably contain several different wild forms in their lineage. Whether this fish is a wild form or not, I can't tell for sure, but it might be. My use of...

    Some Apistogrammas from Peru...

    Thanks for sharing! Note that the Apisto in this video is A. sp. Amaya (aka A. sp. Ladislao 2, see here). They may turn out to be the same species as A. sp. Ladislao but they can also be different, so that it's important to keep them apart and be precise with naming. The same is true for another...

    Some Apistogrammas from Peru...

    As usual with new species, not many photos of females are available. However, to me the fish in your last Ladislao-photo looks like a male. The other small one might still be too small to sex, at least for my sexing skills. One thing I found by looking through my Ladislao photos that might be...

    Need Help Identifying These Apisto's

    Are these different specimens as the A. sp. Maravilha in your other post?

    Apistogramma Identification

    Your second fish are A. psammophila, I don't know whether it's a pair. The third one is some uaupesi-like species. But without knowing the catch location, I can't tell which one exactly.

    Apistogramma Identification

    Look like a pair of A. sp. Maravilha to me.
  11. Frank Hättich

    Anyone know what species this is?

    It's not bitaeniata but rather A. eremnopyge or the newly discovered species called A. sp. aff. bitaeniata (Cenepa)/A. sp. Balsapuerto. However, in the latter case you would probably know what it is, so it's most likely the former ;)

    Apistogramma ID needed. Maybe Velifera?

    I only know two photos of the D40 (both not very good for ID purposes) and I have no idea how to distinguish them from velifera other than by catch location. If I remember correctly they have not been in the hobby so far because they died before or soon after arriving but @Tom C will know...

    Apistogramma ID needed. Maybe Velifera?

    Yes velifera (excluding the unlikely possibility of A. sp. D40).

    A. Viejita sexing

    Yes and because I'm not particularly good at sexing especially when it comes to domestic strains.

    A. Viejita sexing

    Your fish are A. macmasteri and the first one is a male. The small ones I'm not able to sex.

    Apistogramma Floricho??? Has anyone heard of this Apisto

    Not with this name. I know them as A. sp. aff. bitaeniata (Cenepa) or A. sp. Balsapuerto.

    Wild Apistogramma id

    Imo it's not different from other macmasteri-group species.

    Wild Apistogramma id

    The reasoning behind my question for size was this: if the fish is small (<4cm) it still can be a male but if it's large though not too large (say 5cm), it's most likely a female, because a male of that size (even if subdominant) should look different.

    Wild Apistogramma id

    It's a form of A. cf. hongsloi too. Whether it's the same as the first ones, I can't tell. Depending on the size it can be a female or a young male.

    Wild Apistogramma id

    They are both males.
