I recently bought a bag of fish at an auction labeled Apistogramma uaupesi. They were young, but as they grew some started showing some markings. The striped female ..if I'm not mistaken is A. baenschi, unless there's another female with the same markings. But, what I think is a male doesn't look like he's from the nijsseni complex.
Sorry but I could not get a clearer photo of the male.
any thoughts? or was I sold a grab bag of mixed apistos????!!! They sure don't look like uaupesi!!!

hey there!

i think you are right about the baenschi female, but the other i have no clue of.
i'm sure someone around here do have an suggestion, but will probally ask for better pics, to be sure.

I agree. I don't see A. uaupesi among them. You appear to have a female A. baenschi and the others are eunotus-complex species, probably more than one.
