So when I bought these fish I was told they were "sunset cichlids" which I assume would be Apistogramma atahualpa. I have a feeling though that they are something else, maybe Apistogramma trifasciata? I only have a few pics of the male and I'd like to confirm what they are with people here. Thanks in advance!

Pretty fish! Don't look like anything I've seen but maybe somebody else will know.

I don't know exactly what they are, but I don't think they are atahualpa. Here is my pair in breeding colors, if that helps.

Yeah they are definitely not the same as your fish Harpua, though I must say your fish are absolutely beautiful! I'm still thinking they are trifasciata especially if they look similar to AlexW's but hopefully somebody here will know.
