    Emmm proper name is Apistogramma sp. 'Zweifleck'
    Not one of the most colorful apisto's but none the less beautiful - the males can be quite aggressive for an Apisto also with the females if they don't want to spawn so a definite harem apisto so the aggression is spread between the ladies.

    The males grow to 3,5"

    Don't need super low PH to spawn - PH of 6 is already enough for them to spawn.

    The dad is beautiful - really nice build but then they are F1's. Being F1's they will probably also not be so colorful but if I had a choice I would always go with F1's.

    What attracts you to these Apisto's?

    lol the price. I fI ordered from ApistoDave again I would definetly pay for next day shipping, so

    35 shipping
    11 borellii pair
    11 njisenni pair
    16 viejita pair

    That already over 60, but thats basically the only way I can get them.

    If I bought from this guy, I would get 10 juvies for maybe like 20 dollars if no one bids plus 18 shipping. Thats a pretty good price, but Im not so sure about the looks, lol.

    But yeah, I think I may end up orderng from apistodave again. I think the problem last time was with the priority shipping. I should have payed for express. Plus now I have an RO filter so the fish wnt have to go through a pH shock.

    What if I put a borellii pair in with the female borellii and the two female (i think) nannacara anomalas in the 20 long?

    How would a njisenni pair do in a 20 high with a female checkerboard?

    Good luck with Apistodave...hope you get the kind you ordered and they are a bit older this time.

    Adding a pair of borelli to the single female is fine - the single female will show some aggression to the new female to establish top female and they should be fine with the nannacara.

    Same as Apisto's with checkerboards - they get on fine as they don't look alike.

    Unless it is super heavily planted with at least 6-8 little caves I would stick to one of them...
