Any thoughts on this one?


Only unacounted for fish is Apache or Agassizi orange female. Stripe and body shape is not Apache and tail is not aggie.

Other than a member of the trifasciata-lineage, which covers most more 'advanced' apisto species there are no diagnostic feature useful for a positive ID. A. paulmuelleri (Apache) is a member of the regani-lineage, so that rule it out. Just curious; what is it about the tail that makes you rule out A. agassizii?


I thought Agassizi had a more spear shaped tail, like my flame red male.

I had a small pair of Agissizi orange from Dave but the male got stuck in a filter and died. This must be the female?? from that pair then.

Thanks again. So much to learn.
