Apistogramma hongsloi???

I'm asking on behalf of a friend. He sent me a video and I have attempted to capture a still of the pair. His comment to me was that he had a pair of Apistogramma hongsloi that had spawned. Looking at the video showed a fish that looked nothing at all like A. hongsloi photos I had ever seen. I need to ask the experts for ID help. When I asked him what he had bought them as he said Apistogramma red "something". I hope that you can help.

Hi Peter!
To me it looks like A. Borelli. Could be borelli “red” aka opal?
But lets see what the experts say

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.
