It was back in 1996 when Uwe Werner presented in the Aqualog South American Cichlids II a dwarf cichlid under this name. The city and municipality of Tame are located in Colombia in the Arauca Department at the Rio Arauca. Here the unusual Apistogramma macmasteri have been collected. Sadly it became soon after lost for the hobby….
Now we were able to manage an import of a few wild collected specimens of that variety. The fish are large, almost fully grown. Hopefully it is possible now to establish a stable aquarium population with these really nice animals.
For our customers: the fish have code 624624 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Only very few specimens available!
