    A. Borellii Spawning Advice

    Better food for the win IMO. Start hatching the BBS for them everyday, and I’d wager you’ll have fry before too long

    ivanacara bimaculata

    Find shoreline aquatics in Washington. IIRC, I seem to recall Thomas posting some on aquabid recently.

    Apistogramma juruensis? ID help

    Neat fish! Looks like they should land somewhere in the regani complex. The split bars that are shown in a few pics look very much like some of the eunotus type fish

    20 gallon tall?

    Will it work, probably. Is it ideal…probably not.

    thinking of adding GHO ORGANIC HUMIC ACID SOLUBLE GRANULES 93% humic and fulvic.

    I use muriatic as it’s pretty easy to get hands on. PH goes from 7.4 to 5.5, and tds go from 30ppm, to 37 with my “usual” dosage.

    Breeding Ivancara Adoketa

    By the numbers, pH and EC are right where you want them. Temp seems a bit high to me, tank seems quite small. I’ve been doing all my spawning in 30 longs (36x12 footprint), and 40 breeders (35x18), ph 4.5-5.5, 60-100 us/cm, 23.5-24.5*c.

    Would love to see an "attitude" list of Apistos.

    This is pretty vague, but if we ignore the level of “aggression” at an individual level, I’ve always felt like scarcity of food in the natural environment equates to aggression at some level. Blackwater = scarce resources = highest levels of aggression and competition. Clearwater offers more...

    Male and female juveinata?

    Interesting fish. Tough to say what they are in my opinion…caudal spot seems a bit to round to be macmasteri for me

    Caught the Apisto Bug - Apisto Atahualpa

    Trigger them to breed, probably not. Most Apistogramma will try and breed when they are happy…will you need to drop the pH to successfully breed them, most likely.

    Books on Apistogramma

    148? Believe it or not, that’s not horrible. When I was hunting my copy, typical Amazon/eBay pricing was in the 4-800 range

    Books on Apistogramma

    You just have to be diligent watching Amazon and eBay. I scooped my vol 1 for $80 on eBay after a few years of watching

    Need help with sexing Apistogramma Elizabethae

    Pattern on the bottom half, pattern on the top half, I’d say she is actually a she.

    Need help with sexing Apistogramma Elizabethae

    I can’t see enough of the details to make a good judgment, but elizabethea are pretty easy. If she is a she, you’ll be able to see vertical bands that run top to bottom on the whole tail fin. If “she” is a sneaky he, you’ll only see pattern on the bottom half of the tail.

    A. Sp. vaupes and A. Sp. gillspot WC

    It’s a nice fish, very cf personata like, but much more colorful. Similar to d6, d37, and d50 in terms of being collected in “blackwater”, but able to reproduce in water with values much higher than what we associate with “blackwater”

    A. Sp. vaupes and A. Sp. gillspot WC

    If the fish in the second picture, is the actual fish they have for sale it’s sp keimenfleck. gephyra looks like agassizii, but with a fine lace type pattern in the caudal fin, correct?

    How do you use RO water for apistogramma

    Usually, I’ll cut RO with tap water in a ratio that gives me the desired hardness. Less frequently, I’ll remineralize. In my experience, water that’s too soft, is less forgiving than water that’s a bit too hard
