received some German bred specimens of that rare Apistogramma from one
of our breeders currently. Initially this fish was imported in 2009 It
was said to originate from the Rio Jutai in Brazil, a left hand affluent
to the Amazon river (which is called Solimoes there). Since then to the
best of our knowledge no additional specimens have been imported. The
fish is present only in the tanks a few specialized hobbyists now.
For our customers: the fish have code 618604 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
