Other names for apisto. iniridae?
I recently purchased a pair of apisto. iniridae, and I'm trying to find more information on them. I can't find the species in the profiles, however, and Google is surprisingly unhelpful. Do these go by another name? If so, what is it?

What information do you need to know and on another point, why did you purchase fish you do not know a lot about?

I certainly second that; it can cause serious trouble if one buys a fish without knowing its needs. However, I guess we can partly excuse you, since all Apistogramma will have some shared requirements...though these can sometimes vary a lot.

I've only added one Apisto to our profiles to date since there are so many and within certain respects care is similar. Here is some reliable data on this species. Hope this helps.

Apistogramma iniridae

I'm not looking for anything specific, as I believe I've got the basics down. There's always more to learn, though, and I was just wondering if the species happened to have another name which would explain the lack of information I've seen so far compared to other ones. It looks like it isn't the case. Searching for "apisto. iniridae" on Google even returns this topic on the first page of results, and it's been around for a few hours only!

I picked those as a recommendation from someone more knowledgeable than I am, and said person knows my current tank setup enough to avoid compatibility mistakes.

Thank you for your replies.

This species was described and name by Sven Kullander in 1979, and it has no synonyms so the only (and valid) name is Apistogramma iniridae KULLANDER 1979.

Common names can be numerous, though usually useless as they are "common" only to the person using it.:lol:
