    Hi friends become friends with Apistogramma

    Macmasteri male

    Mrs Borelli

    Would it be a couple?

    Species from different species-groups are unlikely to cross breed.
    If they do breed the Fry is most likely not to survive.

    And if I may ask, why would you want to cross breed them. Each fish is different in its own way.

    They can't cross. The male mcmasteri will kill the tiny borellii.

  4. MuhiddinValued MemberMember

    Will they never mate?
  5. NavigatorBlackFishlore VIPMember

    Thankfully, they cannot. There are 4000 km and tens of thousands of years between them.

    Apistogramma do not have much knowledge.

    But agassizi men become swellings and die.

    In the same aquarium, there are cacadu and borelli, but the only agassizi men are swollen and die

    What do you mean? Are you saying that the Apistos are fairly unintelligent (which they are not) or are you saying we don't know much about them?
  8. MuhiddinValued MemberMember

    Look, I can not speak English, I'm talking to you with google translation.

    There is an apistogramma agassizii and a constant male

    Swollen and dead

    Are you saying that your Apistogramma Agassizii is dead because it was swollen?
  12. MuhiddinValued MemberMember

    When you combine Apistogramma in the same aquarium, they compete. If your agassizzii were sick when you bought them, putting them with a stronger mcmasteri (look at their body shape to see which is stronger) guaranteed death. Through experience (I bred close to 30 Apistogramma) I learned never to combine Apistogramma species in one tank.
    Many fish we buy carry illnesses that develop with stress.

    I did not think so.

    You say the right thing and the logical one.
