the first two photos is supposed to be a male
These two are supposed to be females
Is it possible to understand the gender or not yet?
Here in Greece they had them the same price 16€ (both WC) so thankfully there is not a problem with the money. I just wanted to keep wild apistogrammas and didn’t care much about which one. After I liked them so much I decided to get another pair or trio (WC) and put a divider in the tank (it’s a 55 gallon) on condition that they require the same parameters. When the LFS opens the preorder of wild fish I will chose those I want. Any recommendation? I had a look and liked baenschi, elizabethae, trifasciata but I will have a deeper look into it.Glad you like them nonetheless.
I would probably give them back due to being sold as another species (and likely for a much higher price: A. atahualpa go here for 40€ (WC: 60€), A. macmasteri for 15€ each.).
Yes I will have a look in older threads of the forum and thank you for the suggestion.You're welcome. I'm not 100% sure about the trifasciata (90% though). Anyway, search for "Apistogramm for harder water" here on the forum, there have been several species named with A. macmasteri.
Have a nice day, too.
I am looking into wild caught ones so they match with those I have now but if they are hardier than other types of apistogrammas that can only be good.I agree with MacZ trifasciata have been bred and kept for so long because they can live in any water parameters (try not to test this). I think a pair of trifasciata would probably work the best in this case.
