This is without any doubts one of the most attractive dwarf cichlids. Fully grown males show a very variable coloration, a fact that led to different common names in the past, like “Rotkeil-Apistogramma” (which means “Red-Wedge-Apistogramma”) or “Blutkehl-Apistogramma” (which means “Blood-Throat-Apistogramma”). However, according to most current knowledge, all these varieties appear in the wild together and do not represent different local varieties.
Currently we can offer wonderful, fully grown bred ones and very healthy, half grown wild collected ones. The bred ones have code 630404, the wild ones 630412 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
