I have not posted pictures of fish in a while. Here are some fish that have rotated through the photo tanks recently:

A. ortegai (Pebas population)

A. bitaeniata 'Tapiche' - I really like the yellow in the body of this fish.

A. agassizii 'Yellow' from Peru - I do not know the river system for this fish, but all the males in the group are very consistent, so I think that it is one population.

A. sp. 'Kelleri'

A. bitaeniata .... these were imported as 'blue'. I have pretty much stopped importing fish that are not coming in with a location. Not that having a location told to me is any guarantee that the fish are actually all from the same place, or even from the correct place; but I have found that the exporter (Albertino) has been better about sending fish that are all at least consistent. One good thing about the bitaeniata sold by a color designation is that they generally cost less, and if what really matters is getting some pretty, healthy fish the 'red', 'yellow', 'blue', etc... are not a bad choice.

A. cacatuoides 'Pucallpa' - This is a pretty (and large) cac, and the color patterns are variable. Most look like this one:

Uh oh... it is Christmas morning and the kids just got up.... more later.

Nanochromis splendens - This is a bad picture from a photo tank the day that the fish arrived. I have two groups set up, but they are extremely shy.

Hi,

Do you still have Apistogramma diplotaenia pairs available to sell? Please advise. Thanks.

Kenny
I'm clueless. If I say something you can safely ignore it.

I see that The Wet Spot Tropical Fish currently has the fire red A. agassizi you are looking for. Here is the link:
I've always had good experiences buying from them on line.
Hallo,
I am Hanzle from Holland and keep apistoos for 40 years. Had my own aquarium shop from 1984 till 1988. Always s great fan from apistoos and hyphessobrycon which is s great combination in a Community Aquarium. Perhaps.....in the near future I start breeding apistoos again. Have a 400 liters Community aquarium for hyphessobrycon wadai and apistogramma biteaniata.
I want to get a 55 gallon slightly planted tank with many caves and I am thinking of getting 2 electric blue acaras, 3 blue rams, a apistogramma, 3 angelfish, and some corrydoras. Will that work if I keep the temperature at about and 80 or less?
