    Accepted color varients?

    Hi, my Cichlid club is trying to find a list of generally accepted color variants/tank strains of Apistos in the hobby in order for us to know what we can allow into our BAP program. Is there a organization that would have that on a site somewhere. I'm not a huge fan of tank strains, I...

    Average life span of Dicrossus filamentosus

    Thanks so much for the info, well that does it, I don't think I'll be using them anymore, I've heard too many bad things, and I personally know people who experienced the allergic reactions. White mosquito larvae, would you happen to know, are they also known as glass worms, that might be what...

    Average life span of Dicrossus filamentosus

    Thanks, one thing that is always on my mind is sometimes when conditioning up these guys and also other Apistos, I'll feed frozen bloodworms, I use Hikari's. I've heard some people say there's no problem with it and others say they can introduce illness in fish, any thoughts on this?

    Average life span of Dicrossus filamentosus

    It has varied between 80.1-81.7 since I've had them. The last water test after I lost the male was pH- 4.9 N03- 5 GH- 2 KH- 1 Conductivity- 87 Temp- 81.7 These have been fairly stable over the years I've kept them, with weekly, RODI/tap mix, water changes. I also keep a lot of botanicals in...

    Average life span of Dicrossus filamentosus

    Thanks, I've had my group for about that long, and I've lost a couple, water parameters are good, no major changes, they're the only occupants aside from a group of Nannostomus marginatus that have been there almost as long. They just kinda waste away. Strange thing is, I just had a spawn a...

    Wild A. agassizzi, can we narrow down a location?

    Thank you for the information, so if I pass any of the offspring around, should I label them A. sp. aff. agassizii Netz or just keep it A. agassizii. I just read in Romer's book, Cichlid Atlas 1, that all the wild color forms of agassizii can show up in offspring from other locations, not sure...

    Wild A. agassizzi, can we narrow down a location?

    Hi, I received a young, wild group of A. agassizzi about a year ago, they supposedly came from Brazil. Reading about all the different locations that agassizzi are found in, I'm just wondering if the location they were collected from can be narrowed down a bit. They are a yellow form, I think...

    Apistogramma elizabethae question

    Hi, I have another dilemma. I originally got my wild elizabethae group at my local cichlid club rare fish auction and the fish that were in the auction were sourced from a local wholesaler. The some of the apistos were incorrectly labeled. I'm confident my group is elizabethae but someone who...

    Apistogramma elizabethae question

    Thank you so much for that amazing information, I really appreciate the time you took with your reply. I will either place them in my large South American community tank or try to sell them to someone. I won't try to add a female, you confirmed my fears of adding one.

    Apistogramma elizabethae question

    I received a group of young, wild, A. elizabethae about 5 months ago. All five I believe are males, there is one individual smaller than the rest that I thought might have been my lone female but it's tail has become lyre tailed like the others, I'm doubtful it's a female. My question is, if I...
