    I recently bought a batch of five apistogramma cacatuoides fry and got an extra fish that looks nothing the rest. Instead a long black stripe along its body it has just a black dot. It also seems to have a rounder shape then the others. I have no idea what this little guy is but i’m curious to know what it’ll end up being

    Looks like one of the Laetacara species, possibly L. dorsiger, curviceps, araguiae, etc.

    The photos really aren't good enough for an ID. Still, Gerald is probably right.

    Thanks for reply I’ll try to get some better pictures but it’s not the easiest little guy to catch in a good spot
