    Hi all,

    I'm searching Apistogramma sp abacaxis/wilhelmi, but unfortunately I don't find any in my country (Switzerland).

    Who could say me where I can found/order this specie? Or who have some young and could send them to me in switzerland?

    Thank you in advance for your answers.

    Sébastien

    I know Uwe Romer is working with this species as he mentioned it at the ACA this year. I believe ApistoDave is working with the species thanks to him here in the states. I do not know of anyone else that has them. Anybody else?

    Thank you all for your answers, that's nice.

    @ fishboy : My first wilhelmi cam from Uwe and David :tongue:, I'll see :wink:

    @ Microman : Ok, thank you, I sent you an e-mail and become your answer any days ago... And Peter doesn't have any more wilhelmi too :frown: , I sent an e-mail to him too.

    @ Joost S : Thank you, but I find the price very expensive... 40 euro each??? Isn't it the price for the pair?

    You are absolutely right. They are expensive. It is 40 a fish!

    That is exactly the reason I try to get this network running via the Apistogramma Keeper and Breeder Site . I hope to get people exchanging information and fish.

    Looking at this price,40Euros each,we who deal in Apistos in the UK must be doing something wrong....
    Peter Lovett sold me a pair of wilds for 30UK pounds, approx 44Euros, and i have been selling the F1 juveniles for only 2 UK pounds each, under 3Euros.
    A recent article in Practical Fishkeeping quoted Wilhelmi at 75UK pounds each,approx 110Euros.....This must be an error....
    If we tried to sell our Wilhelmi at 40Euros each in the UK nobody would purchase them....

    Prices really differ from species to species. From the A. wilhelmi there are not to many, than prices are relatively high.

    The following link goes to a Dutch forum. The thread will show you the list and prices of species that are available at the moment. Part is bred, part are wild caught. The last one relatively cheaper :rolleyes:

    Joost,
    Would it be possible to give me the address of this shop as i am coming over to Holland in early November, Dwarf shopping and also dropping off some Biotoecus for Eelke at Aqua ferrytale....
    Re:these prices... Personally thought the Wilhelmi, Paucisquamis and even Juruensis were expensive but the others were quite reasonable...
    Mark...
