The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Apistogramma species described

A fish known since 2002 as Apistogramma sp. “Masken” (Koslowski, 2002; Staeck, 2003) has now been described and named Apistogramma paulmuelleri Romer, et al, 2013.

Here is a link to the scientific paper which contains photos of the fish in a biotope aquarium as well as preserved.
