Another Macmasteri group dwarf along with the different Viejita locality types, A. hongsloi is another free spawner appreciating heavy bottom plant cover and maybe some stonework to serve as an open manger. Again, this is another natural to the altum habitat and similar to other Apistos mentioned here they prefer the shallower banks and slower water along the banks of clean, circulating streams.

Hi Ed,

now are knows me eleven forms from hongsloi:

Apistogramma hongsloi (KULLANDER, 1979)
"Blue"
"East"
"Gold form"
"Maripa"
"Red"
"Red stroke"
"Rio Cataniapo"
"Super red stroke"
" I"
" I - Red gold"
"II"


...most of them came from nature. I think, that your first picture is A.h. "I" and second may be "Red" or "Super red stroke". Very nice apistos and not difficult for breeding.

Jan

I am aware of their eagerness to breed. We had them in tanks (+/- 30 gallons) with plain Maracaibo tapwater (moderately soft) where we kept our aquatic plant surplus, very little gravel, mostly corskcrew val which was sold too fast to plant. The water was conditioned solely by the amount of plants in the tank, no aereation, pH +/- 6.0, temp about 86-88F.

We threw 4 fish in this tank and about a month after, I had about five or six juveniles swimming in my home aquarium - the fry had come in on some of the plants. Actually, given adequate conditions, they breed very profusely. Funny we could find A. iniridae at same location, but the latter only bred in my discus tanks when I tuned up my water for breeding.

Ours were from the Cataniapo, a couple of hours South of Puerto Ayacucho.

Ed
