Apisto ID

Ordered a few fish to replace some I lost after my move and I ordered a couple of "assorted apistogramma" but I have no idea which ones they are. Any ideas?

Definitely not a laetacara and is definitely an apistogramma species. Viejita is a definite possibility.

Sorry freak viejita is definitely not a possibility for 2 reasons 1 the true A. Viejita is almost never imported, what we are sold as viejita are one strain of macmasteri or another and are almost always misidentified in most books (Uwe RŲmer's book cough cough) and 2 they are definitely not blue, so the fish in question are (drumroll please)...A sp. Steel blue and a rarely seen pair at that.

I'm with Gillie. 99% of all "Viejita's" are all misidentified Macmasteri's. From time to time I know of a source that get's true Viejita's but it's not often and they aren't cheap but gorgeous fish if you've ever seen one.
