New apistos!

It's been a long 20 year wait, but Apistogramma luelingi is finally in my tanks! The males are a lot more shy than the females, but they are slowly making their way out of their holes more and more everyday.

I am working my way toward Brazilians though, next week I'll have a nice Colombian gem, A. megaptera. It's just hard to find Brazilians that aren't agassizi.
