Hello,
New to the forums. Which I had known about them before I bought 2 Apistos.
I got what a local LFS had a Apistograma sunset. They looked pretty much the same as the 2 cacatuoides they had for sale.
went for the sunsets because they had a bit more color (yellow). In truth they were almost identical except the Cacatuoide seemed a lot darker (I assume stress related).

A friend told me Apistograma Viejita were sometimes labeled as Sunsets. Personally I don't think this guys are Viejita. Maybe a cacatuoides varint. Honestly I have no clue. Both look the same, one is just bigger. Bellow a picture of the smallest. Other is in hiding.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Not the greatest pictures for diagnostics, but with that said, I don't see anything to make me think they are not "Sunset" A. atahualpa

Thank you I will try better pictures tomorrow. They are probably young but I haven't found annarahualpa picture yet that looks like them.
Not questioning your judgement and as you say the pictures are not the greatest.

I appreciate your feedback.
