Apistogramma aggassizi "Double Red" ID confirmation

Post by Colby Dixon » Wed Jul 29, 2009 6:18 pm

Hey folks,

The Cichlidbase project needs your help! While Alex Calder is working on version 3.0 (Blog) we are attempting to positively ID and validate suspected ID's of many of our Cichlid photographs. Juan has graciously agreed to let us use this Forum's Expertise in verifying our photos. Any and all help is appreciated. All photos by Alex Calder.

Thank You,
Colby Dixon and the entire Cichlidbase team.

G'day Colby Dixon,

It looks very much like the agassizii "double red" or "red gold" that are being imported into Australia from Malaysia at the moment. I currently have a trio myself at the moment, but I don't have any good photo's to add.

It doesn't look like a wild form of the red A. agassizii. It is more likely a domestically produced strain.
