    Looking for help trying to ID my new Apistogramma. I picked them up at a fish swap labeled as A. borelli, but after getting them home and unbagged they dont seem to resemble borellii to me.
    Any help would be appreciated! 20181007_134439.jpg 20181005_210101.jpg

    I don't know what they are, but they do not look anything like my Borellii that I breed.

    Hi all,
    I don't know what they are, try posting their picture on a general cichlid forum. My suspicion would be that they are African Rift Lake cichlids.

    cheers Darrel

    Ah yes ... such are the consequences of bad spelling and/or bad handwriting (and omitting the genus name) !
    ... or was it you, misreading the bag label ? ;)

    I have to agree with @tuna. A slight error in name can mean something entirely different. In this case, you have something far from being an apistogramma.

    Those are definitely Red Fin Borleyi juvies.

    Sad but also kind of amusing mistake.
