    We collected these in the Madre de Dios region of Peru and they were identified as Apistogramma rubrolineata by the folks more familiar with the fish of the area. They've started to spawn and before I distribute any to other hobbyists I'd like to know for sure what they are.
    Thanks

    I'm breeding rubrolineata and the male looks like rubrolineata to me. Female as well though they have a more intense, but pale, yellow colour when guarding fry in my tanks. I would have to dig up some pictures to do a more direct comparison of lateral and tail base markings.
