    Hi

    Well that's the thing. I'm not 100% sure. She was listed as a juruensis but I am not finding much on just that sub type 20180929_163848.jpg

    I see what you mean. Not a lot of information on this one that can be googled in general because there are so many other things with that name. However, you can find a lot of good information by narrowing your search down to this site. On Google, try using this search and you'll find lots of information to browse. site:apistogramma.com Apistogramma juruensis

    Hi all,
    It is unlikely to be Apistogramma juruensis, because that species isn't common in the hobby and would have a separated caudal spot (not conjoined with the lateral stripe). The fish normally sold as A. "juruensis" is Apistogramma allpahuayo (until scientifically described known as A. sp. Schwarzkinn/Black-chin), I think that also has a separate caudal spot

    With the usual disclaimer that I'm pretty poor at both identification and sexing, but I think that it is a female wild type Apistogramma cacatuoides, you would need some-one who knows what they are talking about to confirm it.

    cheers Darrel

    Hi Karen,

    You might want to try to get some male apistos as they are usually more beautiful than the female. :D
