    It was quite a big surprise to find a mouthbrooder in the well known genus Apistogramma ! The peruvian species is not yet described scientifically.

  • Apistogramma agassizi „Super Red“

    6. July 2007

    6. July 2007

    September 2006: Few days ago we received a delivery of fishes from a well-known German breeder. The here introduced Apistogramma agassizi „Fire Red “increases the heartbeat of each Apistogramma fan. The strong red of the caudal -, dorsal – and anal fin forms a fantastic contrast with the blue-yellow body colouring and a dark longitudinal […]

  • Apistogramma diplotaenia

    2. July 2007

    Something for the gourmet! So Apistogramma diplotaenia could be entitled. They are rare preciousnesses, which do not attract attention by violent colours. Their attraction is based on tender pastel colours and the knowledge that one maintains somewhat very special. (Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
