This is my new Rio Nanay biotope aquarium. I have 1 male sunset apistogramma and 6 neon's. Can anyone confirm that this is what my apistogramma is? I notice some electric blue like colouring near the fishes gills when I feed it in the morning. Any feedback is welcome. the tank size is a 20 gallon long.

The coloration is broadly in line with the species, but I have problems with your picture. It's a bit small and blurry, even when viewed in full screen.

I would add double the amount of leaf litter (add over a few weeks to not get O2 overconsumption), some rounded river rocks and at least some easy plants like brazilian Pennywort.

I will post a new photo. I also just added 10 large Indian almond leaves
