Labeled as A. agassizi, not agassizi!!

Another question, you all helped out great with the "Rio Tauhpo", can't wait till they grow out a bit more and I'll send more pictures when those are showing better colors and a bit older. Was at the same cichlid convention where I picked up the Rio Tauhpo, I also picked up a pair of wild, A. agassizi "Peru". I'm still new to the Apistogramma world, but I'm positive these are not agassizi, I'm even thinking the pair isn't the same species! The pictures show the female with a broken lateral band, but I have seen her with a solid band at times, but broken most of the time. The male to me looks like A. cacatuoides. Very frustrating that the dealers don't know, or don't care what they sell. Thanks

The (obvious) male looks like a wild-type A. cacatuoides indeed.

The female looks almost identical to the A. ortegai I had for a while last year. My best guess is that fish is from the A. regani species group. Wouldn't bet on it, though. Only sure thing: Not A. cacatuoides.

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?
I have kept fish for quite a long time but never cichlids. I want to find out more about them.
Hi
my Hongsloi, keep eating their eggs, any help greatly appreciated

Hi Fred, do you have any apistos for sale? I'm looking for Apistogramma trifasciata. I'm about an hour and a half from Mtl.
