    @Chandz Do you mind sharing more videos of your apistogrammas if you have?

    Which are your favourites?

    I am busy shopping for some at the moment got given a price-list with the following.. unsure what to get

    Apistograma borelli
    Apistograma pandourini (Pandurini Blue Sky)
    Apistogramma agassizii
    Apistogramma agassizii Fire Gold
    Apistogramma agassizii Double Red
    Apistogramma macmasteri
    MEGA Orange Cacatuoides
    Apistogramma vieja Red

    I mostly share what I have in terms of pictures and videos.

    Personally my favorite that I have is probably Hongsloi form iii (super red).

    It's really up to personal preference but I will add that Cacatuoides, Borellii and Agassizii are the easiest to keep and breed.
    The Nijsseni group (Panduro/Pandurini) are one of the most aggressive.
    Also Macmasteri is almost always mislabeled as Viejita (mine included) so the Viejita red they are selling is most probably Macmasteri with more red on its body.

    The juveniles from my first batch are colouring up nicely, however they will still colour up alot more.

    Now this I'm jealous of - it's a good use of space!

    Any ideas for new upcoming projects, or is it an expansion of your current breeding program?
