We received a moderately sized order of fish from Europe this week with 90% being south American dwarf cichlids. This time we went for colour and not rarity because people want colourful freshwater fish. These certainly fit the bill. The order is very heavy on colour varieties of two species; Apistogramma agassizi and Apistogramma cacatuoides. There are six varieties of each species. There was one killie species, two wild type livebearers, some European bred small angels, two larger species of cichlids, two west African species cichlids and a handful of blue rams. Pricing for most of the Apistogrammas is in the $12 to $15 range with many being offered as male/female pairs for a bit of a discounted price.
Here’s the list of fish from this order.
Apistogrammas: agassizi Alenquer Red Tail, agassizii Bluetail, agassizii Double Red, agassizii Red Gold, agassizii Super Red, baenschi, borelli Opal, cacatuoides Half Orange, cacatuoides Triple Red, cacatuoides Double Orange, cacatuoides Lemon Orange, cacatuoides Orange, hongsloi Rotstrich, nijsseni, trifasciata, viejita Gold.
Other fish; Thorichthys ellioti Papaloapan, Gymnogeophagus australis, Nanochromis transvetitus, Pelvicachromis taeniatus Nigerian red, Orinoco Blue Rams, Aphyosemion australe Gold, Girardinus metallicus, Phalloceros caudimaculatus (males only) as well as some nice angels.
Many of the varieties are in pretty good quantity with some of rarer types being limited. There are lots of angels, very few Blue Rams, a good amount of livebearers.
We also received an awesome shipment of Vietnamese Halfmoon Bettas. Our importer has received this batch from a different breeder in Vietnam with many being insanely beautiful
