Apistogramma panduro var. “Marsel”

26. October 2010

We were able to import this new dwarf cichlid from Peru now. The fish is without any doubt a close relative of the species Apistogramma nijsseni, A. panduro and the still undescribed A. sp. “Inka II”. In contrast to these species the seam around the caudal fin in males is yellow instaed of red-orange. The tailspot looks most like A. nijsseni. Like all dwarf cichlids of that group the males have bright blue shining scales.

For our customers: the animals have code 626224 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Apistogramma: ancient Greek, means “with unreliable line”. It is not known whether the lateral line organ or the pattern is meant. panduro: dedication name. nijsseni: dedication name.
