These were sold to me as Viejita, I have contacted the original importer and he tells me he imported them as a wild pair in march of last year, these came to me as F1's from the person who breed them. They dont look like my Mac's. [color or tail spot]P1010215.JPG but that really dont mean much. I was only able to get one good pict.

It's A. viejita.
But is the substrate you are using rounded? If not, it's not well suited for Corys and Apistos. The best choice for them is fine, rounded, inert sand.

I nine of the Viejita and have what I think may be another female, the only thing I have to go by is a few pict. on the putter and it's body is more rounded in appearance and less color than the male , the anal and dorsal appear more rounded and not as much red in the top and bottom of the tail, does this sound like a female.

Just checked one of the other tanks [Viejita] I pulled what I thought was a female and the nicest male, it looks like I may have gotten it right the female is started to turn yellow, now if they just finnish up I'll be happy.
