I bought a group of five what was told to Ap. Hoignei. I'm in doubt. The photo shows what I think is a male. They are quite small still but a couple of them could be identified as possible male and female.
I would like to know your opinion on this matter and what Apistogramma it could be.

Cheers!

A male for sure. Looks a bit like A. ortegai, but I can very well be wrong. The eye seems a bit swollen, though. Keep a good look on that.

Thanks, both of you. I was actually looking at caetei as a possible one. The vertical lines at the tail fin and the blue line, kind of, on the edge of the dorsal fin made me connect to caetei.

Thank you very much.
