The renowned explorer Heiko Bleher, a member of this forum, recently found several species of Apistogramma in South America, and he offers some photos and comments in the linked article. Heiko Bleher discovers: Apistogramma | Features | Practical Fishkeeping
Throughout more than 35 years exploring near-inaccessible areas of this planet, Mr. Bleher has discovered hundreds of new species and introduced many of them into the hobby. Two of these that are well known to many aquarists are the Brilliant Rummy Nose Tetra, named Hemigrammus bleheri
by Gery to honour its discoverer, and Hemigrammus amandae
, the Ember Tetra, named also by Gery in honour of Heiko's mother, Amanda, who was herself an avid explorer.
