Male in the aquarium
A male of Apistogramma alacrina in the aquarium. The fish shown here is the aquarium form A. sp. "Rotpunkt" and not the form of Apistogramma alacrina from around Ortugueza, Colombia ([Type locality area). There is a question whether or not A. sp. "Rotpunkt" is the same as A. alacrina. Dr. Sven Kullander is not certain - and he introduced Rotpunkt to the hobby in 1974 and described A. alacrina (Mike Wise, personal communication).Photo by Philippe Burnel.
