Hi All,

After absence for sometime, I'm back with this new pair of apisto.

Need some help to ID the species for this pair of apistogramma. Was sold as wild caught a.cf.ortegai (papagei).

Female

Male

Currently, the male owns the entire bottom of the tank. Alot of rejection from the male, not allowing the female near his area. Added some cory as dither to distract the male from the female.

Damn, still waiting to have some import of A. ortegai Papagei. Got 2 (beautiful) females instead of 1M/1F.

Enjoy !

N.B : apistogramma prefers send as substrate ;)

Beautiful pair of Apistogramma ortegai!

Corydoras cats never learn not to intrude into cichlid‘s breeding territories. They’ll blunder into the territory, get chased away, and immediately swim back towards the cichlids. I’ve successfully used cardinal tetras as dithers for A. ortegai. I didn’t lose a single tetra or ortegai fry.
