    Apistogramma id, pls...

    These are the reasons why I believe they are A. sp. Tiquie rather than A. meinkeni: 1. The first two membranes of the dorsal are blackened as is common in both sexes of Tiquie, whereas in meinkeni only brooding females are supposed to show this coloration. Additionally the first 5 (or so)...

    I'm quite sure now that they are A. sp. Tiquie. What do you think Mike?

    Apistogramma id, pls...

    Thanks for your explanation Mike. However, given the variablity/mood-dependency of these subtle differences, I will probably need to see some more and better photos to become confident about the ID of these fish.

    Mike are you sure it's A. meinkeni? Based on the above photos, imo they could also be A. sp. Tiquie.

    Apisto Eunotus

    Yes, your 3rd A. paulmuelleri is a male. As said earlier, your 4th fish (the one from post #12) is likely A. cf. eunotus "Orangeschwanz/Orange-tail".

    Apisto Eunotus

    As suspected it's not an eunotus form but rather A. paulmuelleri. I hope you have a matching female for him!

    Apisto Eunotus

    The fish in your last few photos is likely an A. cf. eunotus form, maybe A. cf. eunotus "Orangeschwanz/Orange-tail". I was talking about the fish with the red markings on its lower head, i.e. this one:

    Apisto Eunotus

    I have strong doubts about all your fish being a form of A. cf. eunotus. Especially the male in the second and second last photo looks different. It MIGHT be A. paulmuelleri or something closely related. But this is merely a wild guess. To be more certain, better photos would be needed...

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    That's not impossible either.

    What type of apistogramma is this?

    Regarding the caudal spot it could be an exceptional specimen of both species in question. But imo the shape and size of the female's chin marking and the bluish/greyish lips of the male in the first photos point towards A. cacatuoides.

    Idenification update

    Where did you get yours Bob and what makes you believe they are Vaupes 1? Afaik so far all commercial imports of D37 are of the Inirida population.

    ID A. agassizi catching location

    Sometimes it's difficult to distinguish A. cf. agassizii (Netz) from A. sp. Tefe. I'm not sure about this fish, but I think it could also be A. sp. Tefe. Joerg can you please show some more photos of the male, if possible while displaying or being aggressive.

    Finding Apisto sp Alto Tapiche

    I think that it's A. sp. Alto Tapiche.

    Finding Apisto sp Alto Tapiche

    A. sp. Alto Tapiche have been commercially imported to the Netherlands some time ago. At the moment hobbyists in Germany, The Netherlands and France (and maybe other European countries) keep them.

    My first Apistos.. A. Ortegai?

    I agree with Mike, it might be a cruzi-like form. But imo it might also be a macmasteri-complex species. Can you show some more photos of your fish CyberCoyote, preferably in different moods?

    Need help with some ID!

    Here are my ideas: 1: I agree with Mike, very weird dark markings! We definitely need to see more photos of this fish. The ones in the background look like A. cf. personata to me (see 2). Since the latter often show a blackend vertical bar 7 below the lateral band, this fish might be A. cf...

    Help ID Apistogramma female

    To me the red coloration that overlays the caudal spot very much points towards a hongsloi-like species. But as Mike says, hongsloi-like species are not supposed to show a pronounced lateral spot! Yet since black markings can be diminished by line breeding, as is seen in the partially missing...

    Your fish look like A. sp. "Gelbwangen/Yellow-cheeks" to me.
