Apistogramma rupununi: a dwarf cichlid from Amapa Brazil
Finally we were able to import again this dwarf cichlid after quite a long time. Most probably our specimens originate from Amapá in Brazil. It is quite tricky to distinguish A. rupununi from A. steindachneri in small wild collected specimens.
However, our recently imported fish are quite large already (some males are already about 5 cm long). In no specimen is any prolongation of the uppermost and lowermost rays of the caudal fin visible. The lyratail of ripe males of A. steindachneri is the best feature to distinguish the two species; so we think that our new imports belong to A. rupununi.
For our customers: the animals have code 628143 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
