Agassizii Novo Aripuanã ?
His cheeks are studded with blue glitters.
His body reflects light.
Red and orange make a good contrast with metallic color.
I specially like a gradation of his anal fin.
A tale fin shapes a spade.
They are strong and hot-tempered.
I think this species is more irascible than mendezi.
He bit to eat small fish when they are sleeping.
And he likes shrimps more than fish!
I bought this pair as they came from Alenquer.
But I don’t think so because a pattern of his tale fin is different from Alenquer’s.
I searched internet and find locality which resembles to their pattern.
They maybe came from Novo Aripuanã.
Novo Aripuanã is a one of cities along Rio Madeira.
They like soft water with weak acidity.
(Tap water in Japan is sometimes soft water.)
They are robust.
Agassizii’s male lived healthliy in a tank where bitaeniata got sick.
I have no experience.
Agassizii is the most brilliant species of Apistogramma.
They are worth keeping, even for their rough temperament.
