    I've been looking for a female for my 2 male Tefe. Where abouts are you based (please say UK) It's been driving me nuts!!!

    Heres 1 of the males other 1 of mine is a bit of a runt in comparison:

    This fish doesn't look like A. sp. Tefé to me. It reminds me more of A. cf. agassizii (Net/Netz). Still, it's always hard to ID an apisto from just 1 photo.

    Hi Mike I've got a few more pics.

    This is when he was in the 4' tank I've moved him and the other male into a quarentine tank as I'm unsure what I want to do with them.

    Look like A. cf. agassizii (Net/Netz) to me, not A. sp. Tefé. Compare your fish to photos on the Net labeled A. agassizii from Alenquer. This is the most commonly imported population of this form.
