Crossing fire red

Hi, first post here, and I’m wondering if anyone has the experience that could help answer my question. I have a male double red Agassizii who’s paired up with two female fire red. They haven’t spawned successfully yet. I was wondering if they do, are there any potential issues with this combination that I should look out for? My money would be on some plain looking fry, which is ok with me, I just wondered with pure bred lines will I end up with something akin to a pug bulldog cross?

Both Fire-red and Double-red are already domestic cross-bred strains of several species within the agassizii-superspecies. Mixing will just get some interesting color forms.

Thanks! I’ll have to do some digging into the line history for both. I’ll post some updates if I’m successful.

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.
