I was looking through various planted tank pictures, eagerly looking at the beuatiful collection of apistos inside. Then i came to the apistogramma sp. abacaxis, abacaxi means pineapple in portuguese. they were actually on my wish list. Anyway i looked at the red tailed abacaxi’s and then i come to another photo below. It suddenly it hit me! One of my  “agassizis” in my tank was’nt  an agassizi after all!!! it was a subspecies of abacaxi. i imediatelly looked at my tank, past various species of apistogrammas and then i saw it, my very own abacaxi! so now i can add one more fish to my list,  Apistogramma sp. abacaxi. i will try to write an article on it in the future. Stay tuned for pics!!!
