    I picked up a group of these because I saw some potential in patern and color. They are looking good and there is a spawn dress female in the tank now. I am pretty sure they are Taeniata.

    For me it's 100% Apistogrammoides pucallpaensis male.

    I agree with Ruki, Apistogrammoides pucallpaensis.

    Definitely A. pucallpaensis. Nice fish though. Julio would know. I got some of my nicest pucallpaensis I've ever had from him years ago.

    As everybody says, A. pucallpaensis (see the "T" formed just before the caudal fin).

    you can watch the anal fin , if the fish has 3 hard spines at the anal fin then it is Apistogramma but if it has 4 or more (?) then it is Apistogramoides

    and i think it is Apistogramoides pucalpaensis
