got me a Apistogrammi tonight

went to the Potomac valley fish auction today and picked up a beautiful double red apisto for 12 bucks. poor little guy was bagged terribly, its a wonder I got him home safely. But he's doing well. I recently placed him with some juvenile Convicts I'm raising and he's doing well. Very territorial though, the tank has atleast 5 designed rock caves that the convicts rotate between. The apisto has picked one cave and unlike the convicts. doesn't appear to want to rotate. He appears to be scaring off the convicts but hasn't actually nipped them so I think it'll work for now.

The apisto looks amazing. I'm looking to get more when possible.

Congrats on your apisto. Do you have any pics of this beauty that you can share??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Yes, pics please! Be careful with those convicts; before too long they'll be big enough to stand up for themselves and will have no problem doing so against the much more docile apisto.
