    How's it going? So I've finally found some apistogramma in my area however I'm having some trouble identifying which type they are. They were sold to me as apistogramma cacatuoides orange flash. However after looking online I have some doubts. I picked up 3 of them. 2 have good color and one is quite bland. Hoping for a pair off. But here are a few pics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have heard of a "yellow body orange flash" type.... that looks similar to this.

    Yes - google "apistogramma cacatuoides gold" and see if the pics you find look like your fish.

    I would say you have some gold cockatoos. Could be wrong though. The bigger one makes me wonder.
