Armed with the a printout of the list of 50 apisto species
I got from the http's mentioned a few days ago, I headed off
to one of my local favorite stores to check out what they have.
Note that deciphering the katakana script is hard enough for
latin names, the varieties may be hoplessly garbled.
Seems like a pretty good selection though. Comments?

I have visited the ASG website, would it possible for me to join the Group?
I would like to  have the copies of all the scientifically papers.Can you
it to me? I will pay you first.

I visited a dealer yesterday, he said he is going to import A. diplotaenia
week. Guess how much is it for a piar? He told me he want ot sell U.S 1100
for a pair. SO EXPENSIVE. What is the price there in U.S.A.

The rare fish here in Taiwan are
(ALL in US dollar)
A. elizabethae   $400  /pair
A. diplotaenia $ 1100 /pair ..never seen a LIVE one!
A. mendezi $100  /each
D. sp "TAPAJOS"  $600 / pair ..
.......I have only seen this once!!        How do you pronounce the word "
Tapajos" ?
A. pulchra $180 / pair
A. agassizii "Tefe" $180 /pair ..
........ This year, they imported TEFE II from Germeny. What is this fish.
Itlooks like they use the wrong  female mate with Tefemale , the offspring
lost the zigzag character .

Some of the West Africa Dwarf Cichlid are also expensive.
