Apistogramma Trifasciata

Hi folks,

Today saw the purchase of a very young pair of Apistogramma Trifasciata.

Not sure what colour form they are though as images on various forums etc don't seem to have the colour form of our male, which is primarily blue but with a red band on the caudal fin (any help would be appreciated).

Hope the images will help and I will endeavour to take more images once they are fully settles in and coloured up :)

All I can say is that the photos show a male(s) not from the Río Guaporé system. That leaves most of its range in the Río Paraguay system and northern Argentina.


Stripped down the tank tonight and Trifas is missing. Not really sure what happened. Tank is sealed well and its not like Apistos are jumpers. :(
