    This is my mystery apisto. He is definitely wild caught. The seller advertised macmasteri pairs and this is what he sent me. I think norberti, others have said cacatoides. Please help!

    Looks like a large adult wild cacatuoides to me.

    I would expect A. norberti to show a patch on the soft part of the dorsal fin. I'm not sure the 2 fish belong to the same species. Not positive, but female looks like A. hongsloi.
