    Hello guys,

    I just bought this male and it was sold as wild caught apistogramma agassizii. Is it possible to say more than this, perhaps locality?

    I can't help with the ID, but that's a nice looking fish and a nice looking tank setup!

    Thanks Larry!

    Hi all,
    Looks good, but it is possibly a bit empty at the bottom, there isn't much to break-up line of sight. Some <"structural leaf litter"> would break it up a bit.

    Whether its wild or tank bred he has really good fins and colour. I had some <"very similar males">.

    cheers Darrel

    Looks very similar to the Rio Tigre or Flamenco form.

    Unless it came with a location name, it is best not to make one up. To me it is one of thousands of A. agassizii holotype-form populations.
