    I'm currently planning to set up a few new breeding tanks for some Apistogramma species, and was thinking of which species I'd like to keep. So I thought it would be good fun to start a little thread here to see which species are on people's most wanted list! Perhaps this could also reveal if some of the wanted species are available through other forum members? That would be a bonus :)

    My personal most wanted ones at the moment would probably be these:

    A.cf.diplotaenia "Orinoco"
    A.diplotaenia
    A.sp."Gigas"
    A.sp."Blauspiegel"
    A.playayacu

    Blauspiegel would be nice to have again. My wish list:

    "A. wickleri" (domestic A. steindachneri strain from the 70s & 80s; giants, very blue, very mellow, and prolific)
    A. eunotus (Shahuayo) - the pink apisto of the 70s and 80s
    A. cf. eunotus (Shishita)

    A. playayacu? Maybe later this year.:rolleyes:

    Any one of the less commonly seen species from the A. pertensis and A. iniridae groups (eg. Erdfresser and Icana)!
