Apisto ID

Does anyone know what kind of Apistogramma juvenile this is? They are between 2-3 months old and the ventral fin has a slight reddish tint. Thanks.

They look more like young Bolivian Rams or German Rams than Apisto's, hard to see properly from the picture on my phone - but any Apisto fry I've seen don't have that body shape.

That'd be a nice surprise. My lfs raised them from eggs and says they are not rams but some smaller cichlid. The lfs does not have the parents nor have they seen them.

I'm definitely thinking Bolivian.

Thanks. Do you think 8 of them would work as the only bottom dwellers in a planted 80 gallon?
