I have heard people say that Zurich does not have too much to offer concerning aquaristic shops. They have Aquarium Seerose and Qualipet Sihlcity, but none of them is said to usually have much interesting Apistogramma ....

People talk well about the shop "Zoo tuna", but this shop is in Thun, about 98 km from Zurich.
This shop has an impressive fish list, which for the moment contains:

(NZ means bred fish, WF means wild fish)
Apistogramma agassizii NZ FIRE RED
Apistogramma agassizii NZ gold / red
Apistogramma cacatuoides NZ
Apistogramma cacatuoides NZ DOUBLE RED
Apistogramma gibbiceps WF
Apistogramma macmasteri NZ
Apistogramma spec. Rio Jari
Apistogramma trifasciata NZ

Good luck!

Why not order thru a local fishshop...

Here is one wholesale in the Czech Repuplic that delivers to shops around Europe: http://www.milan-ullman.com/en/

Ask them which shop is closest to you that they deliver fish to. Or your LFS who they order apistogrammas from.

I got a very nice pair of Hongsloi from them thru a shop in Stockholm.

Thanks Big Foppa :) it means a lot...
I will contact them... I hate inbreeding fish so it will be quite a task finding wild fish or fish from two sources...
