I am wondering whether this fish is male or female. They are around an inch in length, and I believe I've seen them colour yellow at points; however, I don't have an image of this.

They have a faint black line through her tail fin; however, they also have black on their ventral fin. On their dorsal fin, there is a small line of orange/red, like a millimetre wide.

They were in this tub while I was sorting out the tank; I grabbed the photos before they were placed back into the tank.

They used to have a male; however, the male passed away after what I found out was internal parasites which I treated the tank for and have no signs of anymore. They've had free roam of the tank for a few months now. So I don't think if it was a he, they'd be a sneaker anymore.

Still too young/small to sex by me. They are really obese. At first I thought that they were some other species.
Alright, thanks, there were given a snack before all of this of blood worms, and I think they got most of it before anyone else in the tank could. I make sure not to feed whenever I notice that they are getting on the larger size.

I believe these are some better images of them.

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?
I have kept fish for quite a long time but never cichlids. I want to find out more about them.
my Hongsloi, keep eating their eggs, any help greatly appreciated

Hi Fred, do you have any apistos for sale? I'm looking for Apistogramma trifasciata. I'm about an hour and a half from Mtl.
