The shipment from the Madre de Dios region in Bolivia also contained a pretty new species of Apistogramma. The fish is without any doubt a close relative of A. luelingi. Due to its bright yellow coloration we provisionally named it “Bolivia Gold”. Our largest males have a length of about 4 cm, the females are even much smaller. So this new Apistogramma obviously represents a real dwarf species.
For our customers: the fish have code 630853 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
