... and by the shape of the caudal fin: A. velifera rounded vs. A. sp. Putzer two-tipped/lyrate.A. velifera & sp. Putzer are easily distinguished by the 4 prominent abdominal stripes and a more robust/stocky body of A. velifera, hence its common name Vierstreifen/Four-stripes Apisto.
Would you mind providing the name of the store? I'm after a Piaroa male!A recent shipment to our LFS designated A. Megaptera seems to include at least 2 species. I'm guessing A. velifera for the fish in the two stills. What do the experts think?

Next, anyone see potential females in the video?
Thanks for the education.
I live in Oregon, just across the state line in Portland, but it's definitely a bit more of a journey. I think I will research what would be needed to bring a few fish and snails across the border though! Canada DOES look gorgeous though and I would love to visit and just see a new place!!Vancouver is a nice area (though better in spring/early summer); maybe take a road trip from seattle or the ferry one day
