Cory,

I have some that are spawning now.  There is a picture of the male when he
was a little smaller on the krib www.thekrib.com go to the apisto section
and it is there under A regani.  There are lots of stores that sell fish
as A regani and they are not, so depending on your source it may or may
not be.  The female turns yellow when spawning and the lateral line
becomes checked.  We will have to try and get some pictures of her.  They
have black ventral fins and lack the colororation of the males as well.
It was hard to sex them until they were the age shown in the pictures.

Yes, they do, and to throw a monkey wrench into things so does the very similar
looking A. sp. Gelbwangen/Yellow-cheek. Maybe you have two different species,
unless they're domestically bred & from the same clutch. I wish everyone was
color blind when it comes to IDing apistos. Usually, only the pattern of dark
markings are of any importance in species ID. Color come in only when determining
different populations (color variants).

I couldn't check your drawings (I use Netscape & it wouldn't come up for me), but
I checked all my books, both English & German, and couldn't find this. I probably
just over looked it. Maybe what I should have said was, given a group of fish,
all of the same species & size (age), those with more pointed tips on the soft
dorsal and anal fins are most likely males. Given time, your males will develop
more extended dorsal & anal fin tips. The photos in Linke & Staeck show the
differences in the sexes quite well. These photos are of young, but mature, fish.

Yes, when they get very large (old), otherwise the are blunt, not necessarily
round.

Hope this makes a bit more sense.

regani

Kathy,

Splurge away! You deserve it. David's "A. regani" isn't the true regani (see
Koslowski book for true regani). The caudal spot is all wrong. It looks more
like A. sp. São Gabriel (roundtail)/Alto Negro to me (see attached).

I do plan on going to Cleveland this year (only a 2 day drive!). I
understand that it has a heavy hotel booking already so it should be fairly
large. I think a talk by Julio would be wonderful; say a collecting
expedition to Peru. I know that Kurt will be talking about Westies for the
ASG. I think I would rather wait for Ingo's book to come out before doing an
apisto ID talk. He has added and changed the groups/complexes so much that
it wouldn't be a good idea spout the old view when the new one will be
published within a year. Having read rough drafts of this part of the book
frustrates me because I can't discuss it openly before Ingo does.

all my best wishes,

Mike

Apisto Piauensis

This is a fish I ID for Cory. It is the same fish as shown in Linke & Staeck's
book as A. regani. So many fish are coming from São Gabriel right now that it may
be better to call it A. cf. regani São Gabriel or A. sp. Alto Negro.
