    I have this gorgeous fish for sale, local pickup only for now. I'm located north of Atlanta. If he doesn't sell in the next couple weeks, I may consider shipping when I get some heat packs. He's an F0 (wild caught) apistogramma sp. "purple". These fish are rare and not something you're going to see at most LFS. I'm asking $15 for him. He needs a minimum of a 20 gallon tank and would be a great centerpiece fish for a community tank. Good tank mates are cories, tetras, angels, etc. Here are some pics of this beautiful boy! He is a little camera shy, but is healthy and eating frozen foods and pellet.

    Thanks Morgan111! He's got some growing to do so he'll color up a lot more as he gets older. :)

    Nice!! I've seen them on the market lately...sorry but I'm "getting out" of the apistos... They breed to fast, end up with too many babies and I'm not setup for all those growout tanks... but they are are all beautiful fish. Did you post him on the Apistoforum??..might find a owner for him there.

    No, I thought I'd give any Fishlore friends that are local first crack at him. :)
