    Currently I am entitled to keep two amazing species of Apistogramma. I would like to share these amazing fish with you :)

    My first species is the Apistogramma sp. D10. I’ve kept these species for over a year now. I’ve spotted the female with eggs a several times but they never made it to a fry stage. I especially love the long fins of the female.

    The second species of which I am entitled to keep are 4 Apistogramma sp. D37. I currently assume they are 3 females and 1 male, however they are still small and only in my possesion for 2 weeks. I’ve had 2 females guarding eggs. One has lost the eggs after about 4 days, i sadly did not spot any fry to confirm I have a male for sure. The other female is still defending the cave and her eggs are enterinng the third day.

    The supposed young male
