I have some question about this fish.
May taeniacara candidi madeira is new species? They have many different characteristics of normal taeniacara.
(It was first discovered and collected by a Japanese team in South America

Taenic
But this fish only Japan,taiwan,china can find some Information
According to Taiwan's Information, this fish is not actually catch in the tributaries of madeira, they just exported from the cities around madeira.

Does anyone have more information on this species?

As my collegeE nglish grammar professor told me over 50 years ago, "Any English that you can understand is good English". Your English is very good.

The genus Taeniacara has a wide range in the central Amazon Basin, between the Rio Tefe and Rio Tapajos - including much of the lower courses of the Rio Negro and Rio Madeira.

Taeniacra is still considered by taxonomists as being 'monotypic' - having only one species. In truth it is much more likely that it is a 'superspecies' that is composed of several genetically isolated species that show little or no morphological differences. You population appears to be one of these. I would not want to cross your population with more commonly available populations if at all possible.

If you wish to separate your population from those found elsewhere, simply label it as "T. cf. candidi (Madeira)". Beautiful fish, BTW.

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.
