This isn't my first round with apistos, just Apisto fry

Oh, and I also got some better pictures of my Apisto Trifasciata trio (male is pictured twice)
Oh, and I can't remember who it was that was interested in the tris but if you still are, I'm ready to sell
Nice they look like mine

Haha indeed! They certainly know how to hide. But when food is dropped in all of a sudden they are not so incognito!

Kinda bad, a while ago i got some neons from petsmart and in a week they had ich, which passed to my BN pleco (who died from adding salt) and then to my GBRs but not the kuhli loaches. Well i treated it with temp of 84į and added salt and meds. After a couple weeks of treatment everything looked great everyone is still eating but now ich is back in a minor stage. Found the neons and both rams scrapeing against DW alot. Gonna add some stress coat to try to help them recover.

Here's my male. I like his lyretail

They're more colorful with the lights off. Isn't it suppose to be the other way around?

+1 Rid Ich + rules! I'll have to get a pic of my new rams in my moms tank. All's well in my 40B, hopefully I see some breeding action when I get my RO system this week,

He's still really young. I was mad at first because they were so young. But I liked watching them develop.

My LFS just got in wild collected apistos from Peru, I can't remember both species, but one is a. eunotus "santa ana". The co-owner of the LFS actually went to Peru to collect, these are just one of the gems he brought back. My favorite was the crenicara punctulata, a super rare checkerboard dwarf that is almost never seen in the hobby, he's going to start breeding them, but has a price tag of $3000 on his group of 4 adults

IMO it shows that breeding will take place but how soon is the question.

I can't wait for my apistos to start breeding. Or at least to show sighns of pairing up. My tank is completely planted and I have 2 caves. What else should I provide them?

My rams breeding seems to be a one time thing. The females belly has never darkened again. The male constantly tries to show of to her, though.
