Hello,
I'd like to give away 4 Copella vilmae (3 male, 1 female) for free, asasp. They are beautiful. I'll try to post a video later today.
I can send them within Germany, but that would be €50.

I have them in 450L currently, but the level of aggression by the males not only to the same species (also towards females) but to all fish in the tank (Apistogrammas) is so high that i just want to get rid of them.

I'm only 75km from you, but have no tankspace right now, as I just added some new additions. Dang... just 2 weeks earlier and I'd have probably taken them.

Put up ads on aquariumforum[dot]de? There usually fish are placed in new homes quite quickly.
If in doubt, no chance of a store taking them in?

@MacZ Thanks for the advice. You're right, i could just give them to the local store. I was hoping that here i find someone who would really appreciate them though.

Obviously. I myself recently had to rehome some fish I raised from juveniles since January. I was not very pleased to give them away, especially not to two different stores, but the alternative would have been (more) bloodshed (I lost one of them first, that was the moment I decided it's time to split them up). So I bit the bullet and gave them away except one.

Yea, i know what you mean. Just last week i gave some offspring of A. diplotaenia and Betta persephone to Unter-Wasser-Freiburg because of the same reasons (in AKZ there was no demand for the diplos).
I chose that store because i think there they are in good hands and also quickly find customers due to selling fish online.

Hi,

Do you still have Apistogramma diplotaenia pairs available to sell? Please advise. Thanks.

I'm clueless. If I say something you can safely ignore it.

I see that The Wet Spot Tropical Fish currently has the fire red A. agassizi you are looking for. Here is the link:
I've always had good experiences buying from them on line.
Hallo,
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?
