You do know that there is no species called A. wilhelmi, don't you? That's why I hate using this name.

No, I did not. I thought it was now a described species. In the Datz it is listed as A-227, A. sp. abacaxis or A. sp. wilhelmi. Are either one of these still accurate? I don't want to use an invalid name. Wally

Apistogramma sp. Abacaxis (A-227) is correct (as is Apistogramma sp. Wilhelmi), this fish has not yet been officially described.

As Mike mentions, using 'Wilhelmi' does suggest that the species has been described and this is it's current name. Very confusing and I would stick with 'Abacaxis' for now.

Very nice abacaxis! that is weird though, my abacaxi is always out and about. It looks like a differant varient then mine. Lots of purple on the face lol! By the way, do you have shots of the female?
